I've spent some time today thinking about the 09 display. I have some ideas that aren't fully developed, but I KNOW that if I don't jot them down....I'll lose them forever.
Use chopsticks to make telephone poles to run throughout the village scene.
Use sandpaper and yellow duct tape to make streets.
Use gravel and glue to make fences and paths.
Use spray foam and an old bowl to make an igloo.
Use those LED icicle lights to make diff. levels of snow villages.
More to come...
