I am visiting my mother, at the moment. She is the only person I know with her very own papyrus stand! As you may know, papyrus gives us the English word “paper”.
She does, however, make things out of paper.
Having a strong artsy-craftsy side – which I did NOT inherit – she has this year made her own Christmas cards, including the envelops. Even as I type she is stuffing them with her annual Christmas letter and addressing them
They are made out of various scraps of wall paper obtained from the shop owned by a friend.
Since they are out, here are a few.
Closeups. It seems to me that, perhaps, people could do this with their children, thus spending time with them and even saving a little dough, considering the expense of cards these days.
Anyway… those were some matters papyrological.
She also makes things out of shells and bits of broken tiles and glass, etc. I should buy stock in the company that makes hot glue.
