Today is Parents’ Day in Korea. Typically children gift their parents carnations the actual flowers, but also representations of a carnation; I believe kids in school make crepe paper or paper carnations on parents’ day. Before I started, in my head I didn’t know how I would express the frilly and layered bits of the carnation, but they came together and I’m especially pleased at how the pink one turned out.
Wherever you are, whatever day you’re reading this, how about taking a moment to tell your parents (or children or family or someone special) how thankful you are for them. I know I love my parents, and the older I get, the more I appreciate them.
I love using scraps. I feel justified in having hoarded them.
