In this town we know that geese are people too.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Something Whispered Snow

Something told the wild geese
It was time to go
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered "snow"

As a first grader, I learned this Rachel Fields poem. I think of it every Fall.
 It came back to me in September as I walked through this not quite golden field, under a stormy sky that shouted "rain." This is a 5 x 7 card.

The Last Leaf

. A light touch with the blender always seems to yield spectacular results. For this card, I blended several colors of brown paper, then added a bit of red and yellow to the pulp. A quick flick of the blender and presto -- instant Autumn.

Impressive, right?

By pressing string  to just-made wet paper, then lining a straight sided can with that paper, I ended up with a nice design and a very smooth surface on my paper vase.

It was easier to make the string design, then flip in on to the wet sheet of paper.

This wonderful packing material cuts like butter. Its about  an eighth of an inch thick and holds its shape under wet paper. The whole thing dries beautifully.

Cushion-y packing material and buttons applied to a stiff background to be covered with just-made paper.

I was thinking about using these for tags on Etsy items, but I like them just they way they are.
