This is today


Craft’za was great! We met a lot of fun people, had some great friends and family stop by to visit, and we sold a lot of great pieces (both pottery and photos) that will hopefully make many people happy.

I have two other important things to post today. First is this:


Yes! This means I have completed the Book Arts Core Certificate Program at Mn Center for Book Arts!! I am thrilled, and excited to continue on with the Book Arts Advanced Certificate.

Second is this:


My first visual journal page that I am posting here, and my wish list for winter! This makes me quite happy as I have often wanted to start a visual journal. Today is crazy, and I won’t have a lot of time to spend in any one place, but writing this list made me very happy. The photo is from the latest Patagonia catalog.

Through the tangled web of the Internet and common real world friends, I have gotten to know Lynn Fisher and learned she is not only a great writer, but also a great photographer and visual journaler. And through her I learned about the Artsyville blog and ‘List it Tuesday’ and here I am! I hope to make this journaling more of a regular thing and that it will help kick-start some ideas for the next shows and projects I have coming up.

Today will be a busy day, but I’m going to work hard to give myself a little time on my own in my darkroom. I have a lot of film waiting patiently for me to develop….
