fun with unlikely stuff

I borrowed a piece of sticky tack yesterday. My fun started off with this plain old thing...

I made a lollipop. I made a snowman. I made a duck. I made a snake. I made my name. Does anyone have any requests? I'm willing to make and photograph stuff that you want me to. [please allow 24 hours for delivery of said requests] (I am well aware that I need to go back to grade one. And I can accept that.) REQUESTS SO FAR:


My interpretation of Hajera's darkness:



Giraffe:

Mighty demented eye:

Beard, avec mustache:

First thing that comes to mind when I think engineer (also applies to self-portrait):

Arzi:

Scary hijabi

For everything else, there's mastercard! Now leave me alone.

The duck and snake are truly great are creations. Now is it just me or is the snake attempting to eat something? I see a little piece of um dead animal(?) in the picture.

My request is for you to make the snake after he's had his meal. You know, when they have those big lumps in their tiny snakey body :D

I would like a Turtle and then an elephant, if that's possible.

Thanks.

how about a mouse. You know those cute little ones.

That's really impressive. Wow. Mashallah. :)

Should you ever become homeless (God forbid), I'd suggest you become one of those bums who sits at the corner carving stuff out of soap. At least you could put this skill to use in a proactive way to getting some attention as a homeless bum. ;)

Wow those turned out so nice, you did a great job!....you probably kick butt in the drawing and sculpting challenges in cranium.

..this makes me want to go get some playdoo to play with ehehe.

hajera said...

I was thinking of more sinister things than a heart with zig-zag lines drawn on it. I am deeply disappointed in your creative abilities, Asmaa.

'liya said...

Haha, the snake looks great :D Love the lump!

Oh my gosh Asmaa ... you're nuts! haha I love them, they're great :D I don't really know what to suggest. Actually I did suggest something and then deleted my post because you already had it up there haha I think I'm the one who's nuts. Hmm ... a beard ...?

Mars said...

Wow Asmaa. I always knew you became more creative once you took over my room.

I love the burger and fries.

I have some more requests. Can you make a hijabi? And an open book? A toilet?

maaz said...

this is quite hilarious. the wonders you could probably do with REAL playdo and different colours!!

That is a very funny thing to post, and very creative, at the same time! I'd like you to do a self-portrait.

Asmaa said...

No more requests!

Squeeky said...

I'm quoting my high school geometry teacher: "Simple minds are easily amused." It looks like somebody has way too much time on their hands.

heglameister i am quoting myself when i say idiotic minds, such as yours, visit the blog of a person that they obviously do not like.
Spare everyone your useless comments and stop visiting this page.
