I am back from my blogging hiatus and I hope you all had a wonderful and artful holiday!

I have been working on making and finishing several journals. The first two pictures are the cover and back of a journal created using the "Teesha" method with Fabriano Paper. The second set of 3 pictures are collages on a pre-made journal to use for general notes at the Art Nest coming up in February. I also finished sewing some signatures in the fabric journal I had started back in October. Yep...I am trying to finish some of my projects that have been sitting around. Taking little steps in the direction I want to go...cleaning out closets and the studio. I hope all those little projects add up to one organized studio, house and closets.















I also had the pleasure of meeting up with the new Seattle Art group. We had sooo much fun working on projects and chatting. What a wonderful group of artists. It was fun to see what everyone was working on and hear about things going on in the area. The lovely lady behind the painting is Tara Ross.

You inspired me to finish a journal I had put away for a while. Yes, I got through the stitching part! tee hee!

It's very cute and I'm glad I'm close to finishing it.

Good to see you!

Hey Lisa!
Very cute stuff you are creating. I saw that you were teaching again in Portland. My sister, Jen and I are going this year. My sister saw your stuff and loves it and wants to take a class with you! Hope all is well. Wish I could have gone to ArtNest again but it was not in the cards.
