Time Keeps on Slipping...

Technically, we have until July 14th to finish our lantern. However, Marty will be heading out to Calgary (again) on the 12th, and I'm hopeless at making any progress on this thing unless I get very specific instructions every step of the way (e.g.' put tape here. Now put tape there.', etc.) What this means (for those of you who are just as impaired as I am when it comes to reasoning and logic) is that our lantern must be finished by July 11th. That gives us just over a week, natch. Think we'll make it?



As you can see, although the frame itself has been completed, our lantern is still lacking one very important detail: tissue paper! Tomorrow night, we start tackling the giant reams of tissue and the oversized bottles of glue. We can do it!! (Right? Can I get a witness?)

You look decidedly unenthused in the photo--hopefully you guys will make excellent progress this week!

I can't wait to see one of Marty's paintings come to life in illuminated 3-d!

Unenthused for the second the photo was taken, but overall, I'm pretty excited!

On that note, I have yet to master a pleasant 'neutral' facial expression. I either look screechingly happy or death glare mean. As you can see from the photo, another one of my 'look natural' attempts has failed. :( (Unless by 'look natural', they mean 'scare people away!)

Yes that does more or less sum up Dana in photos. That being said, it is very exciting to see the frame which already reflects Marty's style and creativity. Can't wait to see the end result!

Wow! The lantern looks huge! I hope the glue isn't too toxic or you guys could get silly ;).
