For the first time in an eternity, I completely lost a day. Honestly. I was thoroughly convinced that today was Wednesday. Even when someone I am working for mentioned tomorrow as the day to settle her debts (Friday), it didn't click.
This week has flown by, leaving me so exhausted that even as I type this, I am too sleepy to make sense of the whole thing. Which days blended together? When did I lose track?
A million thoughts are racing, slogging... daydreaming through my brain as I am typing this. Like a brand new puzzle, just dumped onto the kitchen table. I think it best to quit while I am ahead and simply post these photos of one of my works in progress.

Looking to expand (or begin) your collection of authentic vintage? I have partnered with Ellez of Young and Thrifted for a Vintage Accessory Set Giveaway to celebrate her Blogiversary! The set consists of a vintage Vera Neumann scarf, a pair of vintage wristlet gloves and an oversized vintage golden carnation brooch; a smashing collection curated by me from my Etsy shop. These would beautifully top of a vintage look or add unique flair to a modern look.

This is the latest stage of a prototype I've been working on. I have worked a good deal with books as a sculptural medium, but newspaper is a brand new world. It lends itself to patience and a careful hand, bending easily with an ever present urge to tear.
Anywho, constructing this paper sculpture of the New York City skyline using the New York Times has consumed me this last week, and I am eager to see what the future of this project will hold.

Lighting makes a world of difference with paper sculpture, especially when you are working in monotone; it helps separate the shapes. I'll be adding gold highlights to bring out all the structural details tomorrow. Can't wait to see the result!
