It’s raining here and has been for a couple days.  Yuck!  It’s hard to get a good photo in this gloomy weather so here’s a little something from a couple of weeks ago.

It’s a paper trophy honoring my fashionable friend Kelly that I made the Sunday we were in New York.  She out shined us all walking the streets of Manhattan.   When I saw this photo on the front of the Fashion (maybe Style?) section, I knew what I had to do.   All it took was newspaper, some scotch tape and some scissors.  I wish I could say that it was usable, but alas, the clasp is inoperable and the scotch tape is not so sturdy.  It made me think some about sculpture and what it takes to make it.  Also, constructing something three dimensional out of something other than fabric took me out of my box so to speak.  I think I’d like to get my hands dirty again. 

Speaking of dirt, to say my hands were filthy when I finished is an understatement.  I have never seen so much black water in a pristine white hotel sink.  Oh well, I had fun!
