This past weekend was the Misters fantasy football draft weekend.

(This is a weekend that shines a light on how the mister used to act -- or still does -- when I'm not around and/or before we became a serious item.)  

So there were a lot of grown up boys hanging out at our house this weekend.

Boys are strange creatures.  Especially when you get a group of them together.

I told the Mister I would get his bears sign made before the draft.  I completely underestimated the amount of time it would take for me to make this.  I sketched the face out on a round piece of pinewood and am using my Dremel to cut away small intricate pieces.  This is what I have done so far.

This is halfway.  The left eye was giving me a really hard time

Finally sketched out to my liking

About two hours of drilling and this is all I have done!  Not even close!!!!!

With the amount of time I have to work on this along with how tedious the work is I wont even be done by Christmas!

If anyone can tell me an easier way to do this I would greatly appreciate it!  


  1. You're right--we boys are pretty strange creatures. Thanks for hosting us and putting up with us!

  2. I'm saying! You can come anytime! I only wish the Mister could have enjoyed it more!
