infinity rainbow…

The sad thing about rainbows is that they’re hard to catch, and quick to disappear.

Years ago, in the dreary dead of winter, I thought it might make me feel better to make a rainbow book.  So, I formed a chunky yellow cover out of Sculpey, and then Roy G. Biv’d together the signatures of a tiny book that — through the forces of the coptic *boing* + sheer happiness — pops open when you hold it in your hand. It’s 1.5 inches when closed, but when it opens — Ka-BOOM! — it feels like a friendly sky of your very own.

Rainbow Sculpey Book

Recently, when the news of the world had me feeling low yet again, I turned back to these trusty colors. Again, I used Sculpey for my cover — but, this time, one for each color of the rainbow. And instead of letting the light of the rainbow fade after just a moment, I made my book IMPOSSIBLE TO CLOSE. That’s right…infinity rainbow. Take that, sad times.

Sometimes, all it takes is a little color to remind you it’s okay to hold onto hope.
