The mail is taking ages these days. I’d already wondered whether this shrine had gone missing – which would’ve been even more terrible than any lost shipment. Because this was a little RAPS mood booster for a lovely fellow fan who is currently undergoing some health treatments.
Another experiment with spraying a mint tin gold, this RAPS is meant as a mental health first aid kit – designed to make the recipient smile. I actually quite like the stippled effect of the letters on the tin.
So, in case you are wondering where the “woolly wonder” of the blog title comes in…
Well, it had to happen at some stage, right? Richard and his charity shop jumper. Chunky knits look good on him, especially when sporting facial shrubbery. And it just so happened that I had the perfect little metal charm lying around. So really, what you see there is meant to read “Richard ❤️ Woolly Jumpers”. (Full disclosure: What looks like a spelling mistake – “wooley” – is actually the name of a product range available in a chain of Irish souvenir shops… But I think we can get away with it here. I mean, *who* is looking at *words* when you have *that* face in the tin???)
I couldn’t resist the wool puns. It had to be.
I mean, I even dug out my “Armitage woolly jumper cosplay” sweater out to style the background of the pictures. For privacy reasons, the name in the speech bubble has been obscured. However, the smile is all for her…
So there we are – some people like men in leather, some like men in suits. And some go for woolly jumpers.
In any case, the shrine comes with built-in love, good vibes and best wishes for the recipient. I had so much fun making it – may she have lots of fun using it.
PS: *whispers* Just adding some good news that concern me because many of you have been following my battle for Mr Guylty’s vaccination and protecting his health. It appears I have an appointment myself on Saturday. That was quicker than I thought, to be honest. Anybody has any experiences to share with the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine?
