NOT THE ONES FOR SITTING STILL























Say you've lost count of the number of Kinder Surprise chocolate eggs eaten. More interestingly you've lost count of the number of toys self-assembled between sugary bites and instead of parting with them the conventional way, you're looking for ideas that might just give them a little more room to shine. We're talking animal toys needing home. It seemed like fantastic challenge to make something out of scraps of paper, buttons and lots of paint. Abundance of green with the lake in the forefront. Even Shrek would approve. We used pine cones as pine trees and pebbles as mountains, sticks and leaves and it looked just like we wanted it to. I love the moment when something bland and unfriendly plain turns into things that are recognizable. Creating surely is one of the raddest occupations.

^^ And it started off plain and noticeably necessary to use up every inch of the scandalously empty space. It could have stayed like this. There were no guarantees.^^
