Seaweed Clock

My plan for Christmas gifts was to be super prepared: I made a quick and easy homemade component (more on that later), then started shopping back in September. I wasn't going to kill myself making gifts or scrambling at the last minute. I stayed on track for a while. Good plan.

Then, my brain shorted out with all that Christmas spirit, and I decided to make several Christmas gifts. One of those gifts was a wall clock for my friend Maureen.

I printed my handcarved linoleum block with the seaweed design (you may recognize it) in bright green ink, mounted it on a board, drilled a hole and put together this little clock.

I think I might be in a green phase of my life right now.

Maureen was super sweet when she opened her gift. I hope she found a good home for it.

A similar clock is now for sale in my shop.
