Or maybe Mabel will start her own design firm or magazine. She just showed me this “Mix and Match” project she’s working on, and it pretty much blew me away. (She says, “It’s easy, you just have to make sure they’re all two inches across at the middle. I used a ruler.”)
There are going to be more animals, and then Mabel wants me to help her scan them and make them into stickers or magnets. I guess that makes me the designer’s assistant.
Rose wanted me to also take a photo of this paper lamb, named “Cute.” Mabel drew it and Rose colored it, and Mabel explained that since it was meant to suspend from a balloon, Mabel had to keep trimming the lamb down “until it looked weird” trying to get it light enough to float. It’s still earthbound–the balloon just didn’t have enough oomph to lift it.
