Nie Nie Auction

I don't know how many of you have heard of the many sites out there dedicated to Stephanie Nielsen's recovery. You might see a Nie Nie recovery button on your favorite craft blog every now and then. I'm a little late jumping on the band wagon, but when my friend Carina invited me to contribute to the auction occuring in Provo this Monday, I happily agreed to donate. Click on this link to find out more about the auction. Or this link.

This is what I chose to donate. My papercut piece that was inspired by my trip to London. It's of the Samuel Beckett quote, "No matter, try again. Fail again, fail better." It kind of hurts to let it go, but it's for a good cause and I hope the person who wins it will enjoy it's message.

Maybe I'll see you on Monday!

Elephant on Eggshells

Posted by Amelia Swhizzagers On 9:28 PM 0 comments

My first papercut of the year! My friend Kim brought over a book called Easter Eggs for Everyone. I'm not allowed to keep it, even though I really want to. Maybe I'll hide it! Anyway, they had a little article on egg dioramas and I thought that that would be the perfect frame for a papercut. What to put in it was the next question. I thought I'd put the biggest thing in the littlest container. A tiny papercut of a woman riding an elephant with a monkey on it's head. I'm not the best photographer, but I did what I could. It looks a whole lot better in real life, I promise!
