Simple Pleasures

Have you ever thought about what brings you pure pleasure? 

I get pleasure from the simplest stuff.  Paper, scissors and an exacto knife.  Who needs rocks!  One can model, fold and cut a piece of paper and create such works of art.  These “ones” are especially able to do that.  Take a look at their sites.

Me, I can model, fold and cut and it is just pure pleasure and wholesome entertainment.

Lately, I have been practicing cutting silhouettes so that I can begin my happy golden years sitting on the sidewalk at Disney World.  The traditional way to cut a silhouette is to take a piece of paper in one hand and scissors in the other and look at the the subject while cutting.  No lamps or shadows are involved.  I have cheated though and taken pictures of profiles to use for cutting.  Digital cameras are wonderful for this.  Delete the picture quickly after cutting and no one will know you have cheated.

Here are a few of mine.  They range from 2 1/2″ to 4″ high.

Only 2,000 or so more to go before I qualify to apply at Disney World.

Oh, and did you recognize Madame X in these?

    Oh, I called it a header. I meant to say your banner.
