Presents for Aaron

I celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my boyfriend, Aaron. I made him this little rabbit scene as we have decided were are "rabbits." I have made many things over the past year for him, some of which uses rabbit iconography. Other things are from fairy tales and bits of things we have said and discovered together over the past year. Here are some of the things I have made...

The second book I made for him. Its called "Melting Point," and is an altered book.


The text is from this "found" story. I cut out everything that didn't apply. What's left are these little fingers of conversations, spindly and fragile. It was spooky how appropriate the text was... from how we met to how we spent time together in the beginning, etc.

There is a semi transparent leaf after the text, and when you turn the page, you find a moth, which was our first sort of totem animal.

An Easter present...

A tunnel book made from a fairy tale Aaron read as a child from the Purple Fairy Book.

A card to cheer him up on a hard day.
