Greetings from Anne's Books and Papers!
Usually I focus on book structure, but every once in a while I enjoy creating books with content. This newest creation was designed as an exemplar to use for two classes I have coming up. Both classes are designed to introduce youth to a variety of book arts.
Welcome to those folks who have signed on and are new to this newsletter! And thank you most sincerely to those folks who are regular readers. I value your interest in my activities.
This month I am talking about the now accomplished move into my new studio space; recent and forthcoming workshops; two stories of connection with fellow creatives; and an ode to spring.
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.
