It’s Just Paper

Just paper and glue.

Just paper and glue.

These are the boots. I learned to set snaps and rivets...sorta.

These are the boots. I learned to set snaps and rivets…sorta.

So I made this.

It’s been on the back burner of projects for a while along with three quilts, jewelry, and some cowboy boots, but something about possible impending snow days and winter got me motivated finally.

I don’t know why it takes me so long to get going. I’m actually pretty content when I’m making stuff. Staying up late isn’t a problem when I’m working on something, but hand me a stack of tests and just one essay, and I’m narcoleptic.

Unfortunately, I don’t think that this will pay the mortgage or buy the Feast that is Fancy. I’m reminded daily by my school and public education in general, that art, music, theater, and literature don’t matter nearly as much as iPads, sports, and standardized testing.

It is after all just paper and glue.
