Making Your Word of the Year Visible Through Mixed Media and Altered Book Pages, Jan. 26th, 2020
Join me Sunday, January 26th from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm for a 1-day workshop at my studio, 949a Mirror Lake Road, Yardley, PA
The word I chose to walk beside each year is always a big part of my journey. This word is a quiet guide and serves as inspiration for throughout the year.
Using our word of the year as a prompt, we will create small altered book filled with affirmations we write and tape. We will fill the pages using all different mixed media techniques including various photo transfers and free form sewing to make our word visible on our pages and in our hearts.
In this workshop, you will receive a regular sized word (you will pick the color) scripted by me as well as a tiny recycled cardboard word, perfectly sized for the pages of your altered book.
This is a full day to focus on how YOU want to feel & live. This workshop includes two scripted words, all the art supplies needed to create a one of a kind altered, multi layered book visualizing your word, plus coffee, tea, a studio lunch and endless inspiration.
Please write your word and your color choice on your registration form. Your word will be waiting for you at the studio when you arrive.

These questions sometimes arise...
What unit of measure do you use?
All product measurements are listed in inches.
What is the "small word add-on?"
The small word add-on allows you to add an additional small (6-8") cardboard or plastic word to your order. The small word will be the same as your large word.
How do I hang the salvaged words?
I use the little foam squares from AC Moore or similar craft stores. They fit perfectly behind the words and also add a great dimension. They do not harm paint. In my studio I have some that have been up for years.
I also love to lean the words...over a doorway, a window, or on top of a picture. The dinner table is a favorite place of mine. I use clear squares if I hang the words on a mirror.
Can salvaged words be outside?
The salvaged plexi words can, yes! And they float in water. The last little words are salvaged cardboard and should be kept indoors.
I want a word I do not see on your website. Can you make it for me?
Oh yes. You can order that right here.
I have a phrase I would like made. Can you do that?
Happily. Just email me directly.
When will I receive my order?Prints will ship out in 1 to 2 business days. Hand-scripted words ship within a week. Custom orders (e.g., Your Word and Your Name) will be processed in 1 - 3 weeks.
Shipping rates and times are based on package weight and destination...you'll be able to view and select the best option for your purchase at checkout.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes...a whole bunch. Please expect delivery to take longer than noted above as packages will be making their way across mountains, sand, or sea.
What about refunds and exchanges?
If an order arrived damaged due to shipping, please contact me.
Where can I see/buy your work in person?
You’ll find my environmentally friendly artwork in healing spaces and private collections across North America and Europe, as well as in galleries and shops in the Northeast United States. Take a peek at my portfolio, browse the shop, join me at an event, and share in my creative process.
I'd love to carry your work...

I still have a question...
