A shipment of our new book Creative Ways with Books and Journals arrived yesterday…
and so I've spent a lot of time in the last 24 hours packing and shipping and packing and shipping…If you were among the first 100 to pre-order a book (or if you were one of the artists chosen for the gallery section) from us then you should receive your book by the end of this week if you live in the US. International orders will take a little longer to arrive. When you do get your book Terri and I would love it if you'd consider posting a review of the book on the Amazon product page. We set up a special group in the ning group just for those of you who purchased a book so if you have any questions you can ask and of course we encourage you to post photos of what you make in the group so we can see what you've made.
And now that the books have been packaged and shipped and I've fulfilled all my other studio commitments I am now starting to brainstorm about where I want to go next with my work. I've been spending a lot of time in the last few days making lists and mind mapping in an effort to narrow my list and determine what I want to focus on going forward. But before I move into any new projects I spent some time cleaning up in the studio and decided to cut up the last of the leftover surfaces that I had made last week and turn them into some quick note cards:
I like to keep a stack of note cards on hand so I have them when I need them. These were very easy to do since the collage surfaces were created right on a piece of Mistyfuse on top of a piece of parchment to start with. All I had to do was cut them up and then iron them right to the front of the card. Easy!
