The Paper Mill does a lot of different things with paper. She wanted to do something that played on the name of her shop, so I proposed doing a windmill with the blades made of the kind of paper she uses for her designs. She liked the idea and I'm pretty happy with the results. Each of those paper "blades" on the windmill is from a photo of an item she made for her shop. Originally, I had an old 4-blade windmill, but she liked the kind we ended up with since she saw a lot of them around the area where she grew up. Getting this banner (and other graphics) put together was a bright spot in my day. Her happy reaction to the results was awesome! Projects like this make up for some of the crappy times I've had.
