#93 down memory lane

093/365 down memory lane, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

The Daily Shoot made me think of this old paper mache mask that our daughter made when she was only five.

Paper is versatile and malleable. From napkins to origami, it’s all around. Make a photo of something made of paper.

I can still see her little fingers dexterously working with the newspaper, and then painting and decorating the finished mask. How proud she was to wear it. Seems as if it was only yesterday, and not almost 15 years ago! I got even a little tearful reminiscing about what she used to be like and like doing. Looking back, children grow up so terribly fast! I will miss her so much when she starts her new life at a foreign university next year…

She was a very creative child, always writing, drawing and making imaginative crafts. My husband made sure that she always used the reverse side of already used paper, or old magazines, cereal boxes or any other recycled paper. Good for him for sticking to these environmental principles, as people everywhere waste far too much paper. I must admit, though, that I do protest sometimes when he insists that we should even recycle gift wrapping paper!

    This paper was certainly reused in a delightful way.

    It sure was! I sometimes wish schools used recycled paper more for different things although, I must say, our arts teacher does collect a fair amount of recyclable material to use.
