Celebration Clock


We are celebrating 46 years in business!
This is the newsletter I made on our
ancient typewriter in October 13, 1967.
I was quite excited about this family adventure

It is amazing to me how fast time flies.
It doesn't drag its feet, it flies! 

I was wondering about a project for our anniversary feature,
and when I saw this clock that I got for free from a drugstore,
I thought I would try changing the face.
I removed the glass in front by
taking out all the screws at the back.

Next, I pulled out the center nob
to take out the hands of the clock.

Then I traced the shape of the clock.

After tracing, I cut it out, including the 
little round hole in the middle.

Now I have the shape,
I drew a design on it.

Then I traced the design on to 
one of my prepared backgrounds.

 
You can see the traced design below.

Here is the almost finished painting.

 
As a finishing touch, I wrote
"Nothing is as far away as a minute ago."
(Jim Bishop)
Next, I glued it on to the face of the clock,
making sure to dry it
before attaching the hands and screwing the back on.

Be careful to check that you 
screw the back on correctly!
The hanger has to be on the top where 
#12 is!

Here's the finished clock.

Now, you might say, I can't draw.
That's all right-
you can make a collage,
you can put a photo,
you can cut out a picture from a magazine,
or you can print this out the size of your clock-


If you don't like the idea of making your own clock,
you can always get one from papemelroti!
This is designed by my brother Robert!
