Here is a flipbook I created out of chipboard of my youngest daughter.Each page has a different butterfly and Heidi Swapp ghost flowers on it. All papers are from the SEI Winnies Walls line.
My dd always keeps me laughing. Journaling on front cover reads: fly (fli) To engage in flight, especially: a. To move through the air by means of wings or winglike parts. b. To travel by air: She flew to Frisco. c. To operate an aircraft or spacecraft. Journalig inside reads: You were supposed to be practicing your clarinet but instead decided to see if you could fly… yes, FLY!
This flipbook is the closest I could do in helping you achieve your goal of flying without the means of an aircraft, spacecraft or wings! At least you decided to try this in the comforts of your home while still standing on the ground unlike your Paw Paw. He tried to fly twice in his younger years once when he was 7 by holding an umbrella and jumping off of the familyâ€™s garage roof… he just knew it would work but seconds later found himself on the ground.
The second time was around the age of 10. He was at Uncle Fredâ€™s farm in Newington, NH. He built a pair of wings out of bamboo and paper and headed for the hay loft. Feeling confident and ready to soar he jumped! He had planned for a padded landing in the hay wagon but Paw Paw missed his landing hit the edge of the wagon and rolled off onto the ground. His hopes of flying were dashed once again in just a few seconds. I do want you to remember…
“Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere. Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander and your imagination fly.” ~Oprah Winfrey I Love you, Mom 2006
