Bouncy bouncy

This weekend’s work was mostly preparation for the fair I’m doing with Kathy either the first 2 weekends in July or the last 2 weekends in July. When I have more info, I’ll let everyone know. I made a bunch of Original Journals and a lot of envelopes—this weekend will be devoted to making Deluxe Journals and packaging up Map Scrap freebies. I have so much fun just making things. I don’t think it’ll ever be my sole source of income, but I enjoy it.

What I do hope will become an income source is my illustration. I also worked on the Frederick Douglass project this weekend. I’ve done two sketches of the main house. They are more detailed than I think the finals will be, but this is more of a “Yes, I can draw” offering. Kathy found this great book on eBay called Le Grand Theatre Sacre du Duche de Brabant, Premiere vol. 1, by Antonius Sander in 1729. It is my inspiration for what I want the final image for the historical map to be like.

Kathy was a busy bee this weekend to and transformed the bird image I made for her tote bags into a free mailing label that can be downloaded from my website.
