The day After*

" Ready for Black Friday Darrrlingsss..."
[ 'what-black-day?' -for those who live
across the pond, click here to find out more ]
Hope most of you had a lovely Thanksgiving feast?!
My family had a good reunion~no fight!
hmmm...perhaps everyone has all grown-up,
including my parents! It's about time~Finally!!
I was going to post some Thanksgiving photos, but
simply can't handle another "Turkey/Thanksgiving' post
at the moment~ seen too much around the blogsphere lately
No more turkey for now at least. Anywayyy...
In honor of the Black Friday, I have chosen
what else, something black! O'dear, I'm getting so predictable!
.





100% handmade a.k.a No machines!
How? simply, very-very-very sharp knife & scissor on thin rice paper.
Amazzzzzing...I can't even cut a proper straight line!
~Huge salute to the great talent, set of eyes...& lots of patience!

Well...anyone brave enough to start the Holiday shopping today?
I'm staying away from the shopping madness.
errr...being trampled by mob of shoppers is not my thing!
I'm going to start decorating the house for Christmas very soon...
which means time to go back up to the attic once again.
Opening boxes marked 'Christmas'...no spiders please-EEECK!!!
.
"Have a safe weekend Everyone!"
~XOXO*

These are amazing! I'm steering clear of the shopping too. I'm actually making a sort of insane 2-day trip to northern Indiana, so hopefully everyone will be at the mall an not on the road. Yucky holiday traffic. Have a fantastic weekend, love!

P.S. I hope you received your camera. So sorry it took me a while to get around to shipping it. I was on vacation (which seems so long ago now...)

nevin said...

What a talent.. These are amazing.. really beautiful..

Kay said...

I prefer your 'black' friday...amazing work indeed!

pinkapplecore said...

wow that took some skill. It's amazing and reminds me of how people hand cut glass.

photojoy said...

It seems the hectic season never make us relaxed. Now I have to consider how to go through Chrismas and the New Year one after another. And thank you for posting beautiful paper works. That's really amazing. Art!

Kwana said...

Wow these cuttings are amazing. Thanks and great minds thinking alike today. I titled my post the same as you.

Michael Rivers said...

I am working today, so no Black Friday festivities. That whole thing is getting out of hand anyway. In Minneapolis, people start lining up 15-20 hours before the stores open. No Thanks!!

daisychain said...

I hope you dont come accross any spiders!

Brandi said...

These cut outs are gorgeous! What intricate and delicate designs. I'm staying away from the stores today...at least in person. Internet shopping on the other hand, I'm totally allowing myself.

Good luck with your Black Friday adventures!

jeff said...

xphoebelinax said...

Sam said...

Such a relief when the relatives all chill and have a good time! Phew!! These paper cuts are so delicate and amazing - the mind boggles at such talent and skill! Have a lovely lovely weekend! XX

dapper kid said...

Woah, handmade?!! Totally need to buy me one of those. Gah, wish I could hop it on over to the States for Black Friday. Hope you're having a gorgeous week :)

Down and Out Chic said...

no shopping madness for me either thank you very much! these pieces are exquisite!

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

Glad you had a nice and peaceful Thanksgiving Lenore. Love the paper cuts, just beautiful. Good luck in your attic, have fun and don't get locked in there!! We would all be lost without your fab posts!! As for shopping in the mall, not a chance in hell. I'm working from my home office a little today, spending time in our attic and avoiding the mall, but that doesn't mean I won't be doing some fun on line shopping in the middle of the night :)

Beijos meus, com carinho.

Gigi said...

I stay as far away from Black Friday as I can! Malls make me break out in hives, especially at this time of year.

I love these paper cuts. She is sooo talented and clever!

Glad your Thanksgiving was good, sweet Lenore. My nephews had meltdowns, which made me glad that my children are cats.

xoxo Gigi

Gabbi said...

What gorgeous work! And I'm very much with you on the avoiding the stores part... I've had such a stressful week that the last thing I need is to put myself in the middle of more of it :)

Looking forward to more on your Christmas decorating dear Lenore!! Such a lovely time of the year...♥

Love those paper art. So intricate and beautiful.

Dustjacket Attic said...

So great that your Thanksgiving went well. Mmm I don't think I'd brave the stores on Black Friday from what I've heard. Yikes.

Hey you be careful up there in the attic girl.
