Snow and Paper

 We had some of our best packing snow of the season on Friday, courtesy of Nor'easter Saturn. Sierra and I worked together to build this flying unicorn. (click on any image to enlarge it.)




















While we played outside, Marina used an unexpected snow day to add more detail to a project she's been working on for her 3D Design class. The assignment was to build armor from recycled computer paper. The armor needed to cover 80% of her body. Luckily, she's thin and short. Some kids make paper chains. My kid makes paper chain mail. 

 





 Just to reiterate, this was made using only paper and glue. No staples, tape, not even string for the connections. This was her choice. She likes to challenge herself. She's been working on it for about four weeks. 

Of course, she had to work under a handicap. Rosie likes to put herself into whatever Marina works on.

Your snow creations are always spectacular - it is good to see Sierra has the snow sculpting gene. Marina, Wow! is all I can say. You never cease to amaze! Love, Mom/Grandma

Wow, that's awesome, all of it.
I can't help thinking you guys would've laughed to see me, Emma and Blake last October, on top of our local summit madly admiring a little snowfall which didn't even cover up all of the ground :)
