Sorry I’ve been so quiet on the blog, and on Twitter, it’s the holiday season and the bone folders are flying, the packing tape is zipping and I barely have time for lunch. The Rag & Bone crew is packing the UPS truck with good cheer and beautiful books and we seem to have little energy at the end of the night for anything other than dinner with the kids and a nice soft pillow. Which sounds very inviting at the moment.
My next book comes out in April, and one of the projects is a book page paper wreath. Lana at SimpleJoysPaperie shared her techniques for a project in the book. I created a few dozen for our bookish holiday art show booth at the Foundry Artists Sale in Pawtucket this past weekend. I just saw the Guardian (UK Paper) is sending links our way, as is Craft, Make and Apartment therapy for the wreath I made this summer. The guardian called the wreath, “this rather un-festive but uber-modern wreath.” I think that’s funny! I wish I had time to post a tutorial, but here are photos from the Foundry sale. I made these wreaths as well as kusudama flowers & kits, book page business card holders and book page garlands and even a bookish necklace. I have a few wreaths left over - what should I do with them?
Here are a few photos from the show:
Back to blogging after the holidays. Have a wonderful season everyone!
