More book photos...



Roxi's Book with side-opening glassine envelopes.

I finally got a little breathing room to add the other photos for our upcoming class at the Memphis Botanic Garden on July 26. For some reason, I can't get my pics to upload. Any advice?

Ready for CHA....almost

We leave for the Craft and Hobby Association convention in Chicago next week. There are four of us going together: Roxi Phillips, Ronnie Goff, Tricia Martin and me. We're driving from Memphis, with a detour to St. Louis for a stop at Red Lead, one of our all-time favorite stores.

Roxi and I are in a tizzy trying to finish everything to get our online store going by August 1. We also have a paper arts class on July 26. For those of you in the Memphis area, here are pics and class info from the Memphis Botanic Garden website:

July 26. Paper Arts Class. Join 2 of Memphis' best paper arts instructors in making a customized book in a decorative box. The book will be bound using the Japanese stab binding technique. Collage, painting techniques, and embellishments will personalize each participant's book. All supplies will be provided except personal mementoes. This class is designed for beginning as well as experienced paper artists. The complexity of the project will be determined by the artist. 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Members $45/non-members $50. Prepayment required by July 23rd. Call 636-4128 for information or registration.
