papercutting class

I have been wanting to tell you about the fun weekend I had several weeks back, but life kept getting in the way.  I finally have a minute and can sit down and tell you all about it.

The weekend started with a date with my husband, spending the day in NYC museum hopping.  We went to the new Museum of Arts and Design space on Columbus Circle.  Although I miss that this museum is no longer across the street from MOMA, the new space is so much better then the old building they were in.  We went to see the Slash show, showcasing an incredible variety of paper cutting artists.  I can't even begin to describe how amazing the work was and these pictures don't even begin to do the work justice.  

Coincidentally I had planned to take a paper cutting class with my daughter the next day with Jenny Lee Fowler at Wing and Clover.  It was a tad bit intimidating after seeing the show, but Jenny is a great teacher and before we knew it we were happily cutting away.
