I’m curious to know whether you have had a chance to try any of the projects in my book Playing With Paper? I’d love to see and share your creative ideas! But seriously, you can be honest and say no – I have plenty of books on my own shelf that serve purely to inspire.
For those of you who’d like to try making one of the projects in Playing With Paper, I’ve decided to host a giveaway to entice and prompt you: see below for details.
When I was in Portland recently, I received this lovely little gift from Carol Dubosch, who came to my lecture at the library (where my artists books are on view now through July 31 – in the John Wilson Room at the Central Library).
She made this miniature version of the Diagonal Pocket Folder, which Hedi Kyle contributed to the book – just the size to hold a business card!
Here is the cover, adorned with calligraphy. (BTW, I’m looking forward to seeing Carol and her calligraphy friends at the upcoming calligraphy conference in Colorado Springs! I will be selling papers at the vendor fair on July 24th).
What do you like to make? During the holidays, I love to make these window stars, which I learned to make years ago when my daughter attended a Waldorf preschool. These make great gifts and are super easy to mail!
