New stamps

Finally I've had time to play with my new stamps from the Painted Pony. The blue bird is a birthday card for my Mom and the red Christmas cards I'll be doing as a workshop at Munster Mosaic. Now I need to go make some cards to sell at Fibrefest coming up next weekend.

New books

Wow where does the time go. I've been really busy working on some books and have finally finished 2 of them. I'll being doing both of these as workshops at the Painted Pony. For some reason they were harder to do than I expected but I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. I'm especially happy with the Acrylic wedding book. I think they were harder than other ones I've done because you always had to be thinking about what was on the other side of the page and not glue things down too fast. If you can't tell, the other book is made with old 45"s and the theme is my high school years. These are both displayed at the Painted Pony now.

Earmark Studio

Well I've been busy working on some new workshop ideas and scheduling fall workshops. I'm excited to let you know I'm going to be teaching a workshop at the Earmark Studio for Cheryl Poulin on Nov. 9th. Cheryl has a wonderful country studio near Dunrobin. Here's the link to my workshop. Make sure you check out the rest of her web site for lots more workshops.

I'm working on about 3 workshop books right now, but none are ready for picture taking yet. So here's a couple of pictures from by garden.

Xena Princess Warrior thought she should be included too.

Tag book

Here's a book that I made after seeing a similar one as a sample in a store. I started by distressing the tags and then it all went vintage from there, so I had to use the unclaimed Southin family photos I had. I knew I kept them for something. I may never be able to through out another old picture again.

Because the spine is made with an accordion fold the top tags flip on way while the bottom tags flip the other. Very fun, although not everyone notices if they don't open the book wide enough.I think I'll try to put the tags through a Cuttlebug embossing folder and make a colourful variation.
