I painted them and then sanded them down a bit. To distress them some. Then I added some left over paper & a couple of the images I colored during class from my bag book project. Then of course I had to break out the Magnolia DooHickey dies to glam them up.
Now to get hubby to hang them up and string a piece of wire in between so I can hang stuff in between them. They turned out really cute.
I just finished reading Room by Emma Donoghue. It was different and sad. It's about a girl who gets kidnapped at 19 and locked in a garden shed until she's 27. She has Jack who tells the story 2 years into the ordeal. The story is about how she made it possible for them to survive in ROOM for 5 years. Their escape and how a 5 year old learns there more outside. It was very good. I highly recommend reading it. I'm now reading The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison. I will be done with that today so I'll tell you about it tomorrow.
Amazon Best of the Month, September 2010: In many ways, Jack is a typical 5-year-old. He likes to read books, watch TV, and play games with his Ma. But Jack is different in a big way--he has lived his entire life in a single room, sharing the tiny space with only his mother and an unnerving nighttime visitor known as Old Nick. For Jack, Room is the only world he knows, but for Ma, it is a prison in which she has tried to craft a normal life for her son. When their insular world suddenly expands beyond the confines of their four walls, the consequences are piercing and extraordinary. Despite its profoundly disturbing premise, Emma Donoghue's Room is rife with moments of hope and beauty, and the dogged determination to live, even in the most desolate circumstances. A stunning and original novel of survival in captivity, readers who enter Room will leave staggered, as though, like Jack, they are seeing the world for the very first time. --Lynette Mong
