Saturday Snapshots - What's This?



C'mon, use your imagination! What do you think this strange thing is below?



Okay, I can see you need some help on a Saturday before you strain your brain. The weird creation is what you get from sitting in the hospital waiting room with nothing else to keep your hands/mind occupied but an empty Styrofoam coffee cup and your fingernails ~~ Mr. StyroFace. It was kinda fun, so if you're ever in a train depot, stuck at the doctor's office, or anywhere else where coffee cups are available...give it a try! :)

I think it's about time you filed you nails...

LOL I didn't see that coming. I actually thought it was one of those ceramic napking holders.
So much for my imagination (and my eyesight). LOL

An arteest! I didn't know! Much better than the time, in a hospital waiting room, that I slowly scratched the waxy coating off a paper cup -- and my finger went through. Being wet in a waiting room is no fun.

styrofoam gives me the shivers...I could never make a creation like that without throwing up.

jill said...

sorry that you're having to spend so much time in the waiting room -- still praying for your friend -- but this is very creative.....

Donna M. Kohlstrom said...

I'm with Karen! I can't hardly stand the word styrofoam without chills going through me! I'd rather a hundred fingernails down a blackboard!

You are so talented with your creation! Wonder what you'd make with a slice of white bread!

Prayers a bunch for your friend and family and more votes coming your way.

Sending more prayers, Angie. Styro, how cool, Angie. I'd never guessed! Somebody should hang that on a waiting room's wall and supply a boatload, hugs

Your talent is never-ending! I could work that cup til hell froze over and it would never look like anything other than a ripped up cup. And, yes, prayers are still flowing your way...

Karen said...

you are so very talented. First writing, now sculpture. I must have missed something, I did not know about your friend's husband. I am sorry to hear about it. what happened?

Travis Erwin said...

You are a true artiste'.

Eeeewwwwww ... Styrofoam. Well ... love the artistic endeavor and your (obvious) talent but ... oh my ... wish it weren't on that terrible substance. Did you know that Styrofoam never ... never biodegrades? Seriously bad stuff! But I digress ... I would never have guessed what the picture was of. :)

It looks like a Queen or a Nun to me - *smile* Grace to you this day.

Cool! You could sell these things. My styrofoam cup would have been confetti.

Terri Tiffany said...

Hope you are getting a good break this weekend. I've been thinking about you:)

Debbie said...

And now you are an artist too! There's no end to your talents:)

Angie Ledbetter said...

How interesting! I never knew how many people were styro-phobes. And, yeah, on all the "artiste" comments. LOL. It was good therapy though. :)

Hope you all had good weekends!

You can do that artistic fingernail sketch on a piece of styrofoam but (beautiful, fluffy, gentle, purry) CATS give you the shivers???? You're a strange one! ;)
