no budget sledding
It snowed a bunch so my studio mate Robert and I crafted a brilliantly constructed sled out of cardboard, tape, cord and plastic. As you might imagine, it didn't work though it was very pretty. So tonight I went sledding down Art Hill with my friend John. Naturally I wore my $4 Portland thrift store snowsuit,a found hat and a lovely $1 scarf. We watched clever folks sledding on leftover campaign signs and of course, the ever popular cardboard box. After a few rounds down the slope we managed to slip away with two dysfunctional sleds of our own that were destined for the trash. No more cardboard or plastic lids for this girl. I now own a beautiful blue plastic sled with a broken handle!
