Pins & Needles

October 27, 2011


A long while back I bought this pin-thing (what are they called anyway?) from the clearance area at ShopKo. It was only 7 bucks, and I should have bought one for every single person I know.

Ha - scissors.

It is crazy addictive. I must have made pin-portraits of my fingers hundreds of times, but it just never gets old. Who invented this thing, anyway? I want to send him a pin-portrait thank you.

See?? Those are my fingers!

We should have at least two here, though, because it’s crazy noisy. After about ten minutes the person who is not making endless impressions of their hand want to kill the person who is.

    Have you done your face? I had one of those and was constantly doing face impressions. I liked trying to show emotions in the pins.

    I’ve never owned one of those….but I think I’ve played with them in the stores. I have plenty of pins…a and needles at home though….hmmm, I’ll let you know how it turns out. Probably shouldn’t start with my face….

    And now I’ll be singing this all day, which is ok….I like it:
