Today is Dec. 6, celebrated in many areas as St. Nicholas Day. Whatever your celebrations at this time of year, may you find contentment - in time with family and friends, with enjoyable activities, and with your creative self. Should you choose to give gifts, I encourage you, please, to patronize local businesses.
In this newsletter I want to bring you up to date on:
- holiday activities and other changes in my downtown studio
- classes old and new, held in a variety of locations
- introduce you to another paper artist, Helen Hiebert
I was reminded this morning that the shortening of the daylight is a good reminder to slow down and to focus on what brings me joy. The problem (if I can even use that word) is that I LOVE what I do and so I am very busy burning the proverbial two-ended candle while feeling very blessed with my life. However, once again time has flown by with my not taking time to connect with my loyal followers! I do want to let you know what has been happening and what is new.
Once again, I have let time get away from me - there are so many books and so little time! (big grin!)
In this edition of my newsletter I talk about the Mt Mitchell Craft Fair, recent publications, and a heart-warming story of a paper beater that went from New Zealand to Tanzania!
I hope you will scroll all the way to the end and check out my calendar of events. I am offering September workshops at Wilkes Art Gallery (a new-for-me venue) and Shelf-Life in Greensboro. In October I am delighted to be offering workshops in the ArtConnections building in downtown, Winston-Salem. I have a Wednesday evening series of bookbinding workshops and will also be offering a Saturday marbling class. Please plan to come play with me.
The astute among my regular readers will notice there was no June newsletter. Time flies when I am busy and having fun! In this edition I will catch you up on some of my activities and provide notice of upcoming events. Foremost on my mind is the grand opening of ArtConnections, my gallery/studio/store in the Winston-Salem arts district. Also important are teaching venues past and present - including some completely new offerings! Last, but not
