Want to see what I've been doing in my spare time?
Well, when I'm not playing nursemaid to my ailing family
(the flu has invaded our home)
I've been gluing, sewing & creating art books!
While putting together pages for my books I begin to understand the relationship, or marriage of the elements. I can spend obscene amounts of time picking & sorting to find just the right words, images & findings that when combined will tell my story.
I am inspired by details.
These pages are part of my contribution to Mary's newest collaboration
4 Artists 4 Ways
I always say I'd like to challenge myself by placing a strict time limit on my design & hopefully come up with a more spontaneous piece.
Try as I might I just can't do it.
There was a sweet surprise in my mailbox last week.
Donna from Brynwood Needleworks sent me such a wonderful & unexpected gift.
She calls them Mug Mats & is hosting a swap on her blog.
Donna's workmanship is outstanding & again, it's the details!
I treasure your friendship Donna!
