Facebook is being mean to me. It won’t let me upload photos from my hard drive. I have small journals for sale. The covers are made from my photos…photos of nature and photos of the cloth and paper cloth that I make. The journal inside measures 5″ x 7″ and is easily replaced when this one is full. I am selling them for $17 plus $2 shipping. If you live in Illinois I will need to charge 6.25% sales tax. I am going to put some photos up here on my blog. If you are interested comment here on my blog or message me on FB and we can make payment and shipping arrangements. Christmas is coming and these will make nice small gifts for friends and family. Thanks for looking!
This journal cover is a photo of paper cloth that I recently made. The paper cloth is made with text, sheet music, used coffee filters, pattern tissue, and copper tissue paper. I really love how it came out. After I made the cover, I did a photo transfer with TAP on the front…the photo of the girl is a copyright free image. There is a brown rubber strap for the closure.
I had to go to New Harmony yesterday for a meeting about our annual studio tour. I left early so that I could spend some time wandering the town and taking pictures for future collages. I came upon this. I had never noticed it before.
Something to think about, eh?
From one of my morning walks…the long wispy needles of pine trees always fascinate me. They look soft.
Peanut Butter Chews…my husband’s favorite drop cookie/candy. His birthday was yesterday and he requested these. Recipe follows.
Peanut Butter Chews
1 c. sugar
1 c. Karo light syrup
1/4 cu. oleo or butter
Heat all together to boiling. Then add:
1 cup peanut butter and stir.
Pour over 6 cups of corn flakes, mix and drop by spoonfuls onto a sheet of wax paper to set up. I think peanuts would be good in these too.
Interesting photo…to me. This caught my eye at the opening exhibit last Saturday. The contrast and the sharp lines are what I caught first and I snapped a picture. It will be inspiration for…something…step back from it…you’ll see what I mean.
And….here is the quilt I sold a few weeks ago. I am missing it a bit, but might make another one!
