Working Small: Creating a Vision Board on Altered Pages, Aug. 3rd
Join me Saturday, August 3rd from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm at my studio, 949a Mirror Lake Road, Yardley, PA
In this one-day workshop, I am going to share this transformative process that has changed the way I am living my life. We will create a clear and beautiful vision board on the pages of an existing small book of all that is to come. Each page will be tactile and full of layers, colors, scents and our powerful words.
Start 2019 with a map taking you to where you need to be. In 2018, I made sweeping and beautiful changes in my life. I saw them first on the pages of an altered book I created. Focusing on how I wanted to "feel, these pages became my map."
We will work with images and colors so we can clearly see the future we are creating for ourselves. Everything will be our media; pastes, gel medium, thread, pins, fabric, acrylics, watercolors, markers. We will sew, type, paint, collage and scribble.
This is a full day to focus on how YOU want to feel & live.
Kind words about these one-day workshops:
"I can't thank you enough my introducing me to a deeper part of my soul." - Jillian
"I'm feeling the pull to get my hands dirty more than ever and feel myself falling down the rabbit hole of needing these books and this process more than I need food right now." - Becky
"I will unpack the layers of our time together for a long time, your presence touched me in so many different, deep ways. Thank you for being there. It was so lovely to walk with you for an afternoon." - Tracey
"The ways you taught me to use that creative space, to bring in a bit of sewing, and to collect all of the other bits and bobs of my life into altered books -- combined with my lifelong love of writing and wordplay -- to create meaning and to hold memories, has been nothing short of magical." - Donna

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...
