Reason #55: My class makes beautiful creations like this one.
Our homemade gingerbread house. Yes, it is about to fall down.
Reason #56: The kids adore some really ridiculous things. Today, one of them could not stop talking about her new kitty from Santa. I was picturing a fluffy, soft, stuffed animal. Instead, I found this:
It’s hard to tell from the picture but its one of those cats you usually find at, let’s say, a craft show. Or Grandma’s house. It is permanently in this “sleepy kitty” shape and feels a little like a furry rock. As a “simulation cat” website puts it, these taxidermy like pieces make wonderful gifts or home furnishings.
…this is my job.
