This week, I’ve had the great fortune to host my fellow WonderStrange artist Sarah Trumpp at my very own house. (Cindy would have loved to be here, too, but it’s her last week of school. Boo school.) Sarah and I took one major field trip to Goodwill, where we both purchased several fabulous cardigans and some adorable shirts, but after that, it was straight up labor camp in this house. While Sarah sculpted hilariously awesome little creepers from polymer clay (she thrives in labor camp, apparently), I’ve been working steadily – for four solid days and one night, in fact – to transform a tan Kleenex box cover with a moose and an evergreen on the front into this Art Nouveau-inspired tribute to the four seasons. I can’t tell you how blinking happy I am to be finished.
If you ever see another Kleenex box cover with this shape at a thrift shop, by the way, you should totally buy it for me and send it to my house. I will pay you and send you cookies made with celebrity Kleenexes.
