On Hiatus, Sabbatical, or Summer Vacation

Wishing you all a nice break from this blog. If you are a regular subscriber, you might want to delete this from your feed, since it will be pretty boring with nothing new showing up. Why, you might ask? No reason, except for lack of motivation and inspiration.
Love to all.

Book Crafts

Famous Artist's Book Crafter, Daniel Kelm, came to town for a book intensive last week: Two wire-edged bindings and when to use them. We spent 4 solid days crafting this project which morphs into several shapes. The binding in the center is a piano hinge technique, and the rectangles are sewn together with a figure eight pattern, tied with square knots, and super glued and trimmed. You really should check out Daniel's museum exhibition at Smith College.

A Mind-boggling event

Today, it's our 40th, yes Fortieth, wedding anniversary. Unbelievable. I used to think a 40 year old was really, really ancient. Someone who has been married for 40 years must be nearly prehistoric. So, what are we going to do to celebrate? We'll probably go to Barnes and Noble and buy books and tea. We'll probably go to the newest find in town and get fish tacos for lunch. We'll probably go to dinner and a movie, and the most likely movie will be.....ta da.....Star Trek. Yes, we're still trekkies, but we probably won't dress up in costume. (Can you see Dad dressed up as Mr. Spock?)
Truly, it's a mind-boggling event.
Love to all.
