Say what you want about the ills of social media…there are days when I’m crazy about it! No, it can’t replace real “face” time with family and friends, but it can help you to meet some incredible people and connect.
This week I want to share with you the wonderful blog of Teresa Cash (such a cool name, she’s also known as “A Smile Maker“). Teresa is set up over at I’m a Late Bloomer. She showcases talented individuals who found their passion, in the latter bloom of their lives. So go on over to her website and enjoy the wisdom and stories of incredible bloomage!
Nanci Hersh, is my fellow boot camper in Alyson Stanfield, Art Biz Boot Camp. Nanci writes about “Artists as Collectors” and the reason why many artists collect art. Nanci is an amazing artist, illustrator and a woman of great courage! Nanci also illustrated a beautiful book of hope, “Butterfly Kisses and Wishes on Wings“, this is a incedibe, helpful book for kids, when someone they love or know has cancer. Nanci, I’m a forever fan!
I get so excited when I meet new artists, it’s like being a discoverer and it is very inspiring.
Besides, meeting new people and having a blast, I wanted to give you a peek at my latest altered book. I finished my Book of Days 2012″ in December and wanted to change-up my art journal, a bit for the next couple of months. So here is a pix of my big girl journal!
This journal is also going to be used for painting ideas as well as my thoughts on any and everything. The front of this journal is covered with parts from a stopwatch, buttons, wine corks and thread spools.
The back of the journal has bottle caps, more buttons, screws and other doodads from my husband’s tool box. (Sssh, don’t tell him…)
The journal measures 15″ x 11″ closed and 15″ x 22″ open. It has about sixty pages; now that some room for growth.
I added some hinges on the spine, so it could hold all those thick pages and stand up.
There is jute string added to the handles for strength. I’m loving the funky hardware vibe of this journal. Enough about me…
