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
I celebrated my 64th birthday on May 6. I love feeling young by doing activities I love and sharing them with others. I am excited this month to be telling you about the excellent papermaking workshop held last month, my trip to New York City, approaches to celebrating people and preserving family memories, and an update on ArtConnections, the newly formed artists' cooperative of which I am 25%. Surely there is something for everyone this month...
