I actually have a VERY boring day job which allows me the time to come up with these.

Yup, office dweller, lots of paper laying around + dull repetitive work = paper airplanes!

I have around 300 designs of my own I need to document and about 15 books I need two write!

I am hoping to get the book on halloween flyers out by January....wish me luck!
