I sometimes get strong urges to make random little craft projects out of things I find.
That’s an understatement, I should rephrase: I always have urges to make random materials and objects into something, hence all the boxes full in my studio. Sometimes though, the urge is too strong, that I just have to get it out of the way so I can move on to other things. In cleaning the kitchen recently, I resisted this habit of keeping and tossed out a bunch of cork bottle stops. Not this one though.
The perfect 5 minute project to get me going in the studio today: a cork toadstool.
