Holiday Season


Sadly, the tree in Union Square is now artificial but it is still a glorious sight!

Burning Bad Juju



All those evil letters from that evil neighbor were shredded and burned in a lovely firepit at Judy's last night. What a beautiful ending it was!

Winter Rain




Just finished this collage made with painted index cards, scrap paper, momigami and bamboo. The scraps were collaged on Avery sheets, then cut into thin strips. Most time consuming was painting the index cards until they acquired the right consistency of thin leather. The sharp strips reminded me of cold winter rains. Thinking of making three more in red, white, and dark blue. Things to remember: do not glue all the way through. Loose paper makes a nice rain sound. Also tape down the strips to prevent buckling.
