Day 167 and 168: I worked on my receipt bowl once again, and this time I think it feels complete. I added 115 more receipts, for a total of 335. This time almost all of my receipts came from one person, my friend Nicole, who had several years of receipts saved up. I didn't even use up all of them. It is interesting the things receipts reveal about a person.
Day 169: I took another bunch of little boxes and added to what I made on Day 146. Since I have been doing recycled projects every day, nothing is sweeter than when someone thinks of me and holds onto some recycled materials for me. It makes me feel so loved. So, thank you Sara, for saving the boxes for me! The insides of these were white, whereas the ones before were brown, which makes really adds to the design.
Day 170: I took a children's book and painted it black. I'm not quite sure where I'm going with this. I want to add to it more, either covering it up with collages, or somehow turning it into an art piece. For now, it is just a black book.
Day 171: I made another paper rose, using paper from the physics book. I found a pattern online that I like a lot for a simple, but beautiful rose. I feel like I could sit down and make a whole bouquet of these, whereas the rose I made earlier was extremely complicated. Here is a link for where I found the directions.
