The top photo is the work of an autistic child in Belgium. It inspired me to complete my own paper creature. Usually origami strives for perfection, however I love the shabbiness of my swan, almost as if he were a recovering alcoholic. I found a dark, quiet nook for him in the library. May he read in peace.
This once reviled nuisance has now become a virtuosic spectacle of entertaining movement and will serve as fodder for unknown projects down the road.

I play a game with my long distance loved ones called #selphie. Whenever we text #selphie to another person they have to drop everything and send back an instant selfie. Today’s post features a guest creator on my blog, my boyfriend, who sent me the bottom photo in response to my top one. It is a very creative selfy.
I have finally saved up enough materials for another shit string! This strand includes a hot pink light up race car ring found on the streets of Brussels, earrings found in a melted snowbank, the whistle imparted upon me by the 2nd year grads, a strand of sequins from a dance recital costume 20 years ago, a pin from my rapper friend and more.
