busy busy two weeks












Here is what I have been up to:
Teaching two workshops in San Francisco (I am so lucky to live close to this city!).
Photos show some of the great books made by the participants.
Making funky journals (in my Etsy store)
printing on and dieing fabrics (this project will be published later)
playing with Michelle Ward's challenge of making grids (these are made with silk squares, pastel crayons, thread and stitching).
and as always - cleaning, sorting, clearing the never ending piles of stuff.

Dorit - what handsome grids! Love the use of pastels with the paper clippings and THREAD! Terrific interpretation. Thanks for sharing your spin on grids with the team!

Hi Dorit,
I really enjoyed your class at SCRAP! Such fun to collage and make a book. I appreciated your comment about not feeling like the pages in the accordion books need to be of the same height. I'm trying to loosen up and relax when it comes to things like that and this was great practice for me. Thanks!

I love how your grids are looser and more freestyle. Have a lovely flow to them.

Don't know how you fit it in with the classes as well! Busy busy.
