Today was the first real hot and muggy day so far this year. The temperature in the computer lab I'm working in soared to 86 degrees. It was HOT. I ended up with a bit of a headache and opted for take-out for dinner so I could just come home, nap, and not heat up the kitchen by cooking.
When I got home I was excited to see that my Clover Yo-Yo Flower Maker had arrived. I ordered mine from Etsy and it came from Japan. The packaging AND the instructions are all in Japanese. There are TWENTY-ONE steps in the instructions!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea there was an English version. I just found that link. *sigh*
Anyways...since it's so hot out and I don't feel like doing anything I thought I'd try my new toy.
An HOUR AND A HALF LATER this is what I have:
One teeny tiny flower shaped yo-yo.
This is what it's supposed to look like:
I didn't even realize until I uploaded the picture that the little belly-button-like poof that the instructions bullied me into making was supposed to fill the hole and act like the centre of the flower. *sigh again*
I can't face attempting another yo-yo tonight.
I'm sure if the instructions had been in English and I wasn't hot and cranky it may have been more fun.
