THE PATH NOT TAKEN
by the thousands of beads that craved becoming necklaces ....
along with the clear fishing line and the tiny crochet hooks
FIRST CAME THE PINKS
especially for October and Bossom Buddies
Then there were multitudes
George Washington U blues and golds
Years ago, I did a series of soft Origami boxes
made from wallpaper samples .....
Deena used them to store odds and ends on her headboard .....
They got so squooshed by her last Navy move
that we said goodby to them .....
Just started doing Kirigami boxes ....
The cutting and
shhhh don't tell
makes them a bit sturdier,
Hillel cut all the starter squares for me
I was doing 4 by 4 by 2 boxes
from hand painted tyvek and liquid starch soaked fabric
Then had to resort to math
to make them small enough to fit sturdy mailers
The hanging butterflies took me to
marquee styled popup cards
These hearts hang from fishing line ~ 6lb
Look very fragile but are very strong
It has been fun creating art for what Deena calls Greeting Card Day
