Papercut Dreams

People often assume that I am a very patient person when they see my papercuts. I always laugh when they do because I'm prolly one of the most impatient people alive. My closest friends can attest to that. Haha.

I'm able to sit for hours, focused on doing just one thing, and come up with intricate designs because when I papercut, I meditate. Or more aptly, papercutting is my meditation. My thoughts run so fast but they are translated into busy but still organized patterns, so I don't get lost nor lose my attention. :)

Here's a new papercut project inspired by the things I dreamt of last night.

In other news, I worked on a special project for Dandy Ona with Marga, a kindred soul from Iloilo. She takes amazing photos. I love her work and I figured it would be nice to collaborate with her. I'll post more photos soon! :)

Of Papercut Headdresses and Other Things

It's a new work week for me! That - and probably the fact that I get to watch TV series again - is the highlight of my weekend. Thanks to Mikko for giving me copies of the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Orange is the New Black.

I can't thank the Universe enough for helping me get through the past week, process it, and change my mind about a few things. And yes, let's not forget how I got to finally finish these papercut headdresses. :)
