Warp Speed Wednesday: Vulcans We Have Heard on High.
My goal for this yule season was a new tree topper. Ideally it would've been a steam punk-inspired robot made from re-purposed items we used in our ongoing basement renovation. But I wasn't skilled enough to strike a balance between aesthetically-pleasing and not-too-heavy-to-be-suspended-on-the-top-of-our-fir-tree.
When I admitted defeat last week, I started to play around with the idea of a more Trek-centric tree topper. The results were abysmal:
Feel free to laugh. Don't mind that I'm over here in the corner crying with the shame of my apparent uncraftiness. I'll be the first to admit this doesn't look like a Spock/Angel. At best it looks like a Spock/Butterfly. Either way it doesn't fill me with the Christmas spirit.
I'd feel a lot worse about this, if I didn't have a bellyful of Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Stars, courtesy of Terri B from Tip of the Iceberg. They're heavenly. Unlike Spock.
