Here's the rundown for how I finished Folktale Week 2018.
The prompt for day 5 was I N S E C T.
I'm not squeamish with bugs. (snakes are a whole other story for me)
I find them fascinating. All those legs, wings, antennas, somethings they light up, or have an iridescent sheen. Then the biggest TADA to me is the complete transformation of a caterpillar to butterfly. (I mean come ON- that's a trick!)
Unfortunately, I missed the prompt for day 6 M I R R O R.
But, I came back strong for the day 7 A N I M A L.
I've always had a fondness for animals. Honestly, I think it's probably because they don't talk. (in my opinion words often muddle things up) To me there's a simple, attention to the moment that animals have. No agenda, no judging, just here and now. To me that's part of their beauty.
I'm all about bringing nature in. Especially this time of year when I can see it all slowly disappearing. I'm also into symmetry but, more of an imperfect kind. There's so much pressure in the "perfect" & the end result is well what you expect= perfect. Which if you ask me can be dry & leave little space for the imagination.

This is a silly, sweet corn maze card I made for Papyrus. A fun interactive way for toddlers to travel the maze & make some discoveries along the way. Who knows, maybe they'll even get a few costume ideas.
