The Collections collaboration book is finally ready to leave the desk! A feeling of relief washed over me as I completed the last portion of the book. It was started by Minnesota artist Cathe Jacobi. You can check out her blog Amaryllislog HERE. Her book was the first to arrive and I now have a taste of adding work intoContinue reading “Collections Project”

Beginning the Water Book
It’s Sunday and I’ve been working on the book for the collaboration. The book subject will be ‘Water’, which was influenced by our current lack of (in the form of winter snowpack), and the fact that I just returned from two weeks on an island. Today’s temperature isn’t super warm and it’s beginning to concernContinue reading “Beginning the Water Book”
Pulling together a book
I don’t often create books anymore and I’m wondering “why not?” They’re so much fun to create. All the papers to choose, both interior & exterior. Did I mention I’m a paper addict? I’m still working out the final colors, but I need to work fast. This is part of a collaboration between 4 artists:Continue reading “Pulling together a book”
Ethical Photo Use?
Every once in a while I check Google for my name and see what come up. I browse through multiple pages and click links that I’ve not seen posted before.

Not every step is fullyContinue reading “Triangle Accordion Book Tutorial”

There was one change made in the box cover after taking the initial images. I added a place to insert narrow pictures orContinue reading “Book Box Extra”
Sister’s Bookmaking Afternoon
How often do I take the opportunity to teach others cool projects? Almost never! But I’m trying to change that by inviting family and friends over to play. On Thursday morning I called my big sister in Eugene and invited her to come create a book of her choice. My sister is a quilter andContinue reading “Sister’s Bookmaking Afternoon”
For some reason I still have my goddess project hanging around the house. Hopefully it will be reunited with it’s box next week at OurFest. Shannon had such grand visions for OurFest, but life has been busy. It’s scaled back to a one day & overnight play-time on Tuesday. Here is the goddess book IContinue reading “4E projects….”
