    craft sticks.  I like woodworking but can't do the real thing in my apartment.  I started out with just some leftover fudgecicle (sp?) sticks and moved on from there.  I make everything from simple beads to Christmas creches.  I use all kinds of sticks, skinny to tongue depressor size, as well as sandwich picks, toothpicks, wooden ice cream spoons, coffee stirrers, etc.  It's woodworking on my lap!  :-)

      That sounds really cool.  We went to a Ripley's Believe it or Not, and there were whole buildings made out of tooth picks or match sticks.  Lots of patience.

      Have a good one.

      I am a work in progress. Still.

        It's a whole genre called tramp art.  A lot of it was done by prisoners who have lots of time to be patient.  :-)
