Easily Create a Hand Puppet

2017_11_10_teddy_puppet

INTERESTING STORY (at least I find it interesting): So, I create a hand puppet out of a teddy bear – viewer request. I put like 5 hours into the filming and editing process (maybe more). I even got a headache for some reason (pulled a back muscle getting in and out of that dress – LOL – had to take a nap which is highly unusual for me). Things turn out pretty cool though in the end, I’m happy with the puppet – it turned out better than I imagined. What’s the downside? YouTube’s new machinery flags my video as inappropriate for ads. What does this mean to me? It means I don’t make money and money pays for my food and electricity and teddy bear and studio. LOL, okay – it’s not really funny. That was a crazy laugh. Anyway, I ask YouTube for a human to review my video. They have a new rule. My video needs 1,000 views in the last seven days to get a human review now. 😦 Boo. Do you know the chances of that happening? Yeah, I get like 50 views on a video in a week. Plus, even if it does happen, I’ll lose out on $2 since those 1,000 views won’t be counted. Yes, that’s right people. A YouTube creator needs 1,000 views to make approximately $2. That will just pay for the teddy bear that I bought to create this video (thrift store find). It looks like a down and out day for the Classy Cheapskate! I knew I shouldn’t have cut a hole in the bottom of a teddy bear and stuck my hand up it. Now I’m paying for it. I received a sexually explicit warning. Here’s the YouTube video link if you want to help me get 1,000 views in 7 days! – Or, if you want to see how to make this most awesome HAND PUPPET that is totally ad friendly and kid friendly! This is a ridonkulous situation. Arrrrr. Oh well, at least I didn’t break out in pimples from whipped cream being all over my face – a Mrs. Doubtfire moment (you have to watch the video now! LOL)

Dryer Lint and Toilet Tube Bracelets

I just love being creative. So, once again, I formed a marriage between dryer lint and toilet paper tubes in my crafting adventures. I created shabby chic bracelets in this video tutorial. I’m actually going to wear these. I wonder what people will say? It should be interesting. LOL
