Paper clip couple
We are in the process of moving. First we decided it was time to get back to civilization and for us meaning Stockholm and my one room apartment. This was a bit to small for us and it is a dark flat. And now we are moving to a larger apartment which I believe will be close to perfect, for us!
While packing up my stuff I found the cute paper clip couple I made years ago:
A truly inspiring collection of 50 ways of upcycling/recycling/repurposing items from Twisted Sifter.
Scrappy crappy art no.1
Here in Sweden is basically impossible to sleep during the summer, it is kind of bright all night long. It is the opposite in the winter but that is a completely different matter and should not be thought of during summer. Anyhow, the brightness makes it impossible to sleep without the best blinds in the world that lets in ZERO light or with a sleeping mask. And here it comes, The sleeping mask!
I’ll admit it is not a beauty but I made it in a few minutes and it is quite comfortable and shuts out ALL the sunlight… It’s not like I want the winter to be here but not being able to sleep during the night is very exhausting…
From somewhere I got inspiration to do art, or just go crazy with stuff I had at home. I will now present my first of my scrappy crappy art projects.
This is made totally out of recycled material: previously used toilet paper… (ok, just kidding toilet paper is something I am not planning on reusing) But the frame is painted old cardboard box..
Explaining my art: This is a toilet paper heart and is it put just in front of the loo. It is like some kind of tribute to tp. I can’t think of any person who would not like tp. For me it is a bit of a humorous piece and I smile a bit each time I’m on the loo.
