today was almost a nice day; the first in a long time. after 12 a.m. i was free to work on some gifts. finally i was able to enjoy my work and (almost) not think about all the other work that is undone, waiting for me in big chaotic, unstructured piles all over. i was quite happy with the result; simple, but sweet. 3 sketch books for 3 siblings, simple folded paper decorated with cutouts from old childrens books. after the photo was taken, i trimmed the edges so that the white paper wouldn't stick out like it does here.
