My First Ever Craft Post

I am not the craftiest of people. I love to write and take photos, but anything involving more skill or dexterity than that is usually beyond me. At school, I once managed to stitch the fabric pencil case that I was making to my own tights…

But DorkyDad set me a challenge, and I couldn’t resist. He bought me a bottle of champagne for Mother’s Day. After we had quaffed it, and I was tidying up the kitchen, he mentioned seeing something online once about making a chair out of a champagne cork.

What?” I said, sounding a bit dubious.

Really.” he said. “You should Google it. It was very cool.

So Google it I did. And I found a step-by-step guide on how to make a chair out of a champagne cork. Some people in the world obviously have way too much time on their hands. And evidently I am one of them, because here is my little champagne cork chair.

I am immensely proud of it.

I am also a bit embarrassed by how much fun I then had sitting a Lego man on it. Although he does look like he needs a little glass of something to complete the scene.

Here is the “I’m a big boy now and I can stand on my chair if I want to” pose.
