I am addicted to paper. And stickers. And glitter. It's a weakness. Nothing makes me happier than rifling through my stash, looking for the perfect piece, and combining things to make little pieces of art which I know will make someone smile.
For a while last fall, I taught an origami class to a group of 3rd and 4th graders at my son's school. It was a blast, and very fulfilling to bring to them an art form which I have loved since my days as a fourth grader.
There is something so peacful, so quieting about sitting down with my supplies and creating. It helps me to get my mind in order, to calm myself, and to find peace.
