So we had to make a lamp for class using a recylced material...for some crazy reason, i chose to use pop tabs. It took forever, but here it is! I call it the tree hugger:

I used close to 500 tabs...and it took many many nights to do. They are woven with ribbon and wire to keep the shape. I listened to the entire Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld on audiobook while making it. I'm happy with it, but also glad it's done!

You imagine songs that have never been played
They will try to buy you and your mind

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Your reason may have been crazy or not, but the result is awesome. I'm sure that it took quite a while to make, but I'm also sure that it was worth it. What a great way to recycle!

Dear Craftster Friends,
Three years ago, I was much younger and dumber and I flaked on a few swaps. I am back and I promise to make it up to everyone I hurt. I had been flaked on a couple of times, and I know how cra**y it feels. I am really sorry.
