Do you still have anything that you made when you were a kid ?

Such as a painting, jewelry, ceramics...?


One of the things I kept is a ceramic pumpkin that I made in ceramics class when I was about 12 or 13. I just took it out of storage for Fall.

    When I was about 11, our class made these, em, things out of wood.

    We had sheets of furniture backing board, almost like thick cardboard, that we cut into two rectangles using a little hacksaw ... each the same length but two different heights.

    Then we took some thick blocks and cut them up. I remember that taking an absolute age with the tiny crappy saws.

    We then took the backing board rectangles, used the blocks as a base and sides, and nailed it all together with tacks into this sort of open box configuration.

    I painted mine red, added essential touches like hearts and a few cute Pokemon stickers (Pikachu, Bulbasaur, and Jigglypuff to be precise). I guess it was supposed to be a spice rack or something but I decided it was for storing pens and pencils.

    There's not a straight edge on the thing, nor do the sides quite line up due to them being slightly different sizes. But it was so bad it was actually good so I kept it.

    It now sits in the hospital where I work where it is used by staff to keep pens. I'm often asked by visitors if my kids made it for me. To which I always reply, in mock hurt ... 'No. I made it ...' just to see the reaction.

    Yes I little wooden jewelry boxes we drew pictures on and shellacked. I'd forgotten about them until now.

    Yes. I have a half cat half whale thing I made for my mom, a jar with a face on it, and a jewelry box I made in carpentry. My mom still uses my 3rd grade mini bowl as an ash tray.
