Makes me truly happy - Shoebox art.

"125 childred aged between 8 and 10 were given a shoe box and asked to recreate their bedroom, or room
from their home, and to write a few sentences about it."

I love this. It reminds me of when my grandma made a house out of cardboard boxes for my Barbie dolls. I wish that I still had it.

Ah, thanks for awakening the nostalgia. :)
