I tried to explain to my Boss, what I meant by an Ottoman made from recycled plastic and paper, he had no clue how that could ever be made. He couldn't visualize what I had in my head, and of course I wasn't going to give up on the idea so.......my coworker and I went out on a mission to make it(I must say she did all the sewing/which is basically everything). I guess there was also the box and cushioning part, so I had a hand in it somehow. I'm really glad we got to see it come to life as cruel as the rejection might of tasted. The look my Boss gave the ottoman...priceless. However it is still cool in my book. Thank you Cindy for helping me out!!!!!!!
