when you are inspired to make something, the only things you use are whatever is sitting in front of you? i do a lot of swapping on swap-bot, and i had a swap that needed to alter a wooden spool. along the wall behind me and in my garage i have stacks of stuff - but what did i use? yes. as i sit at my desk, all the items used in my little button ballerina were at arms length. crazy huh?
