Tissues at the Ready

Oh my, we’re nearly a week into February and this is my first post of the year.

Oh well, better luck next year with that. Anyway this post is to request some creative input from my blog friends. I did ask on my Facebook page but the suggestions didn't really help.  I’ll tell you more about them later. So what is the story?

It started when I updated my profile photo to this poorly soul photo. It was suggested that I would need plenty of tissues; little did I know that very soon that premonition would come true.

The next post was to ask what I should do with the collection of debris. You can sing this to the tune of The Twelve Days of Christmas.

Three Tissue Boxes
Two Lemsips
And a packet of Para-ceta-mol (*)

Some suggestions were to Google Blue Peter videos on YouTube, along with a Tracy Island, Bad TARDIS, monster feet and a guitar. Two people instructed me to recycle, hmm don’t know me very well; I’m looking for a more constructive way to recycle them into something for the Ghost Town.

Anyway, having dragged my carcass back into the office I was rewarded with one of those meetings, whereby the only way to mentally survive is to doodle on a Post-It with a red Sharpie.

The best I could come up with was this. 

There has to be something constructive I can do with the arches. At the moment I just can’t think of it. 

The only rule has to be the exterior has to be a coffee stick building since it is only the Ghost Town that is made from recycled boxes, other models do require a more solid base to apply the clay and other materials.

So now it’s over to you, what suggestions do you have?

Here's a quick photo of one of the current models in progress. Surprisingly I've not got very far with the models this year either.
