School Project – Poem Page


Hi, here’s a poem that I wrote for a class project using





I realize that this may be hard to read so here it is in a different font if you're interested in reading it.

This is Where I’m From

I am from comedians,
from musicians and nerds though I would never tell them that personally.
I am from energetic ancestors,
that are imaginative, creative, and come up with the weirdest things.

I am from music and from art,
from the art on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
I am from academics,
from always being ahead no matter how many steps I’ve taken in the opposite direction.

I am from Christianity,
from sticking to what I know is right and avoiding what I know is wrong.
I am from wanting to be my own person and not being afraid to show who I am,
from never following the crowd.
I am from standing up for my beliefs,
from understanding others when nobody else will take the time to listen.

I am from believing that there’s always an answer and always a possibility,
from hope for the future and all that live after me.

Paper Shelter Mailbox

I made this mailbox for my mom’s birthday yesterday/ Valentines present.  I also had the newest Paper Shelter challenge in mind while making it.  It took me about three days and I think I threw away more roses than what actually ended up on the box but it turned out pretty well.
I colored up this cute swinging girl from The Paper Shelter and hung her from a tree limb (a sizzix die) and more smaller rolled roses.
Here’s a close-up of my rolled roses and leaves:
