Dougie wants a cuppa joe

Poor Dougie. He gets his heavenly brew but not in the form he’d hoped.

Thing 20: Buy or make some clay and then use it like you never have before.

What I like is is that the handle’s a perfect comfy fit as I pinched the dough in a natural grip. Not apparent by the color is the cup of coffee kneaded into this homemade clay. However, you can spot some grounds I added in keeping with the theme.

Since the piece isn’t glazed, Dougie doesn’t get his joe.

It serves up my angel cards instead … for a heavenly cuppa coffee?

    I love that you included a spoon. Wonder if if holds water? For how long? The clay was fun, I may use it again.

    That is so cool- coffee grounds..not just for composting anymore(though I suppose mixing them into the clay could be considered a form of composting!)

    I’ve been looking for something interesting to do with the parent art & craft group I facilitate. This is great!

    Thank you

      @hakea – Since you’re a newcomer, it’s only right and fair to tell you that I can’t take credit for these creative prompts. That goes to Noah Scanlin and his tome, “A Daily Creativity Journal.” Further, it’s neighbor Doug who has the book and because I can’t afford it, I pilfer the creative prompts from his site, hence I call them Dougies. Now you’re up to date. 🙂 Thanks for visiting and glad I, Neil and Doug could all be of help! 🙂

    That book looks good. I think I’ll get my own copy one day. I have been wondering who Dougie is. Thanks 🙂
