i design them very very roughly, using tried and test mechanisms. as I don’t have paper designs i do make the same mistakes again and again. Maybe I should write some notes.

I’m a late comer to the party Wanda but I just love these little wonders. I also appreciate the “no real plans, design by whim” approach.
Great work. If you can make someone smile, your work is done.

These turn out so well. I’m impressed with all the work you do.

Also, if you wouldn’t mind, I’d be interested in hearing what mistakes you say you keep repeating in the instance I try doing something like this in the future.

And thank you for posting a video with each one being used, it makes them that much more enjoyable :)
