fragments in time

hi guys, how are you this april evening? hope your monday was un-remarkable or totally fabulous. it’s already 11pm and i don’t know where the days go!

just now i was searching through journalfest and came across pam garrison’s blog. tonight she talked about her pages and how to keep on working on them even if you don’t like them, that the important thing is just doing them. her post from  yesterday intrigued me too cause she’s making an art piece for an auction for japan (above)  and she’s going to pair the flag with some of her embroidery.

i’ve been an admirer for a long time but saw a lot more of her artistic sides and fell in love with her sweet designs in every genre.

this is one very talented artist, the more i dug in the more layers were uncovered. if i’ve ever recommended a link to you, forget them all and go to the one above. her book-making is LeGeNd and this video is a quick walk through her world.

    This is wonderful! I love the designs and the books especially. I tried my hand at old-fashioned book-binding once upon a time. Couldn’t keep it up (it’s rather tedious), but I enjoyed the hands-on aspect of it. And these are lovely.

    And it’s lovely to see artists getting involved for good causes. Japan still needs us, no matter if they are in the forefront of the news anymore or not. There are still suffering people there.

    Thanks for sharing!
