July 2009 - May I make a suggestion??
« on: June 30, 2009, 04:46:21 PM »
Graham, if I may, I'd like to make a suggestion for the July model of the month (or possibly a challenge??).  I know most of the twisters aren't from the US, but July 4th is our Independence Day.  I'd like to suggest the Model of the Month be something to represent America or a Freedom celebration.  Maybe not necessarily 1 specific model, but show us your best sculpture that you think represents this theme.  

Some suggestions or things I think of associated with America & Independence Day:  flag, eagle, Statue of Liberty, cookouts (hot dogs, hamburgers, etc.), fireworks - just to name a few.

Thanks.

The Statue of Liberty is a combo of an upside-down wristable and the cover of a children's book my daughter had at home:
Little Miss Liberty. I thought the face was very cute on it.

And the bears... the 350 teddy bear is something I learned from Bonnie and twinkles on MBD2. Around christmas, Patrick puts santa hats on his standard stuff to make it christmas-y. I took those two ideas, put them in a shaker with some ice and vodka, shook well and poured the 4th of July bears out. Serve over ice.
