Goodbye 2020!

 



This has been such a challenging and difficult year for so many people and I doubt many people will mourn it coming to the end at midnight.

But I have been very, very fortunate that I have been able to work from home since mid-March. My creativity has continued and I have even blogged more this year than in the last five.

I wish you a very Happy 2021. There is new hope with the COVID-19 vacines beginning along with a brand new administration in the White House. 

Stay safe, everyone!

Sail Away, Sail Away





 



It always feels so good to finish a project. This one has languished for about five years! It is from a paper mache ship pattern by Ann Wood. While on vacation this week, I was able to complete it. Instead of using cardboard, I used watercolor paper and painted it with good artist grade acrylics.

Turning scraps into Mini Books




What can you do with remnants of acrylic painted watercolor papers? That's what I wondered in March, as I began sorting these colorful strips by size.


And then last weekend, I had an answer:  fold them into little accordion books!
