I am in the middle of getting ready for 7 upcoming workshops and building 125 kits for "The Ambrosia Journals". Phew, what a lot of work! I was surprised at how long it took to cut down the sheets of Davey board (all EXACTLY the same size) and package them up. Now I am cutting down waxed book binding linen to size, (in assorted colors of course) and packaging that.
After I come back from "Art and Soul" in Hampton, Virgina (all my classes are sold out), I will be off to a private Workshop in Grand Rapids and then a few days after, off to "Whispering Woodlands" in beautiful Verona, Wisconsin. I'll be teaching "Over the Edge", The Twirly Swirly Journals" and "The Ambrosia Journals" there. "The Ambrosia Journals" were selected by "Cloth Paper Scissors" as one of the five finalists for the "Artisan of the Year 2011" award. They can be seen in the February 2011 issue of "Cloth, Paper, Scissors".
