binding, binding, binding

Still laying low and not as productive as I would like to be. Being pregnant with a 2 and half year old has proven to be quite exhausting for me. I am constantly reminded of Binky Bergman’s comment to me about being a sleeping bag with feet. ha! So true! Anyway, in the meantime, I have been working on adding more handbound journals to

I have been working on creating more Natural Elements journals as my stock is embarrassingly low. And I also have added more mixed media cover journals. Here are my four most recent additions:

signs from the sky
6×8 blank handbound journal

Growing and Mending
6×6 inch blank handbound journal

vessel through which the earth sings
6×9 inch blank handbound journal

Bound Together
6×8 inch blank handbound journal

The imagery in two of these journals may look familiar as I used previous paintings as the start off point. It’s fun to revisit an older painting and then take it a step further.

A big thank you to everyone who took the time to comment with congratulations on my last post! I am just thrilled to have been a part of the project and James Shipp will let me know once the cd becomes available online for anyone who is interested in purchasing it. I will pass along the link for sure!

    I love the thoughtfulness of these books.
    Like the quiet anticipation before a poem forms.

    It is amazing that you are getting art work done-- pregnant with a small one around? you must have a supportive hubby.

    I didn't know you were pregnant either. Well, now I will stay in the know since I'm following your blog.

    Beautiful work. I mentioned you and your work and our connection in my debut entry.

    Stay well sister.

    Peace and Love,
