I'm in love with paper.
I get random laugh attacks, especially when tired.
Some NYC buildings would look better if painted pink.
I believe we are all artists.
What got you started crafting?
This all started when a ridiculous amount of white, thick, beautiful, quality letterhead paper was being discarded at my office when my company changed letterheads. I couldn't stand it. I decided to chop off the letterhead and use the rest for myself. I ended up with a pile of paper almost 5 ft tall! (my height) How much paper could I possibly use up?!
So, I started using it to form rough journals using old magazines and book covers as covers. I've always been experimenting with acrylic paint and realized that the small canvas paper I was using would make a perfect cover as well. I fell in love with the first complete piece. It was called Grassy Fields. Inside its pages I spread the lines of a poem called Lioness and the front was the fields she roamed. The entire journals was a piece of poetry and I couldn't wait to share that with everyone. To share my love, the peace this journalmaking brought me, a home for words, which I also love and some really smooth paper!
What is your source of inspiration?
I get inspiration from everything I see, from the curve of the inside of the NYC Transit authority buses to a gorgeous picture on national geographic, to my dreams.
What have you made recently?
The last journal I made is really out of season. Its a pink prairie and I like the fact that its a little spring in your fall!
Where do you sell your crafts presently?
I set up a shop on Etsy a couple of months ago. I also tend to give many of my journals away as gifts :-)
Why are handmade crafts important to you?
I believe handmade items can transmit the love of the crafter like nothing else in this world. Handmade goods are transmitters of love and I'm all about spreading love. Advocate of love is what I like to call me!
