Seek out the inspired concepts in your ideas
Pull on strands that lead you deeper into wonder
Disregard the naysayers
At least until they you feel they have truly seen
Is only yours
And your passion
Is what will see that vision through
to fantastic proportions
I thought, “I have a lot of junk mail,
and I wish I could put it to use somehow.
I don’t need to burn it for heat,
but I do need a bigger waste paper basket.
Wouldn’t it be neat if I could make
A waste paper basket out of waste paper.
Paper mache allows me to do that.
I wonder if I could use such a flexible form as a plastic bag–something often not recycled.
The answer is yes
Here’s my reuse of waste paper, paper mached to look like a plastic bag.
I said, “we need a thematic element for the event this year. We need a gigantic thematic gear or cog. It’s got to be at least six feet tall.” and then I designed and built a gear for our library event 6′ in diameter out of hot glue and the fairly standard sized boxes in which our new books arrive.
Those are just my ideas; me, Hannah. But I know you’ve got some things bouncing around in your noggin and I’m here to encourage you to explore and draw upon those ideas a little more. I think you’ll find it’s a rewarding endeavor #MakerMentality
