Not sure it belongs here, but it was a shoe box that got turned into a "basket" by adding paper (that I had painted first). This was a present for my friend's birthday.

(Oops, you can see the box underneath on that corner...)

It's lined with fabric.

Feeling like I was in elementary art class again with the paper weaving:

I made this booklet using GIMP (plus some additions and coloring afterward) I was proud of myself because I never use photoshop-like programs. Figuring out how to print the pages to go together was probably the most challenging part of this.

I love it!!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I'm not happy, I'm cheerful. There's a difference.
