go! or not. not at all in fact.

as sharon so rightly guessed, we were making little basketty things made with glue-soaked yarn over a balloon.. like these.. with the intention of then weaving plant matter into the yarn to make a cool lantern for tonight's midwinter lantern festival.

they did look like this-
so anyway, this morning they felt suitably dry & crispy, so i decided to pop one..

yeah you've probably guessed it by now....


are you supposed to *grease* the balloon or something?!?!

luckily i didn't pop it in front of alexis, so i'm going to leave the other one to dry for another day or two & see if that helps!

and now to come up with a new awesome lantern idea!!
