Fiber Arts Festival

My 9-drawer box was accepted into the Fiber Arts Festival, which starts today at the Sequim Museum. The box, drawers and journal are covered with coordinated fabric. If you have a chance to stop by and see it, please do. The reception is tonight, which unfortunately, I cannot attend. But I did stop by this afternoon and took at look at the extraordinary exhibit. It is definitely worth the trip. The exhibit will be up until the end of November.

Clamshell Box with Journal

I thought it might be fun to create a clamshell box for one of my journals – and it was fun. I like these as a set and think I’ll do some more.

Journals using new handmade buttons

Softcover Journals with handmade buttons

Softcover Journals with handmade buttons

I just finished some new softcover journals using my new buttons. Some of these have standard handmade buttons from Bumblebeads. The others are using the new handmade buttons with my bird design on them. Dede from Bumblebeads made them specifically for me.


Handmade Buttons for Journals

I recently met Dede Leupold (Bumblebeads) who makes hand made buttons. I bought a bunch of these buttons to go on my softcover journals and I’m anxious to do that,

Additionally, I asked her to make some that have my logo on them so I could use those as well. I am very excited about these new buttons and can’t wait to get some softcover journals made with these great hand made buttons.

 


New Journals

Hardcover journals with exposed spine

I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.


New Painted Fabric for Books

I just finished painting a bunch of fabric to use to make into book covers. The next step is to get these cut out and start the process of making the journals. I’ll keep you posted.
