Useful Art Objects: March 27th, 2015

Today I’m so exhausted I can hardly form a sentence, so instead I will mostly let the pictures do the talking.

The first item is made of various of our boys’ origami adventures, put together with the help of their Bubby.

…I’ve been corrected, apparently it was just Solomon and Bubby.  All this time I’d thought it was both boys…

Before, with the wooden "vase."

Relax Bubby (and Grandma) I did not get rid the creations, I got rid of the wooden vase.  And I finally found a most excellent use for the sculpture a long lost friend made in art school.

Its like she knew I would have origami-loving kids one day, far in the future.

It’s like she knew I would have origami-loving kids one day, far in the future.  Also: I don’t know why there appears to be tape up there…

The next item is something I bought several years ago.  I almost immediately didn’t like it much, but it had our NAMES on it, so what can you do?

Well, it’s wood…and it’s too late now if you want to protest:

Besides, I go by Killam almost exclusively these days.

And then there was the lovingly hand-crafted dragon costume.  I remember stuffing that dang tail.  It was a lot of work…but I loved how it turned out.

For some reason, I always first say "dinosaur".  It is is clearly a dragon.

And then the Ninja costumes.  I’d made badges for each of us (Cheri, Cheri, and Mindy) and I’ve gotten rid of the Cs…today, M went:

Mindy, or MIGHTY?

And then this guy.  Max makes really awesome tiny people using things.  This guy unravelled a bit and was starting to crack and discolour.  For Christmas this year, he made me a guy out of yarn who will last a lot longer.  Farewell, broken tiny man.

My leg!!!
