This year for our second wedding anniversary we kept it local and simple. We went to dinner in the neighboring town, walkable. Somewhere we both love that is a bit pricey. I made my husband a cozy for his french press out. Using two interior design fabric samples, some extra trim from another project and a tiny bit of velcro left over from projects so old I was surprised I had any left! It can out so perfect that it not only kept the coffee hot for his second cup, that it works on the new french press he bought after the original one cracked and then broke. Maybe one day I will start working with glass so I can just make him a new one when this one cracks. Probably not. ha ha

My  experiments in glue continue. Below are two more in my 3″ x 3″ series. I am also working on a larger scale of 8″ x 8″ and have finished one of 4″ x  6″ (can any one say postcard!). The use of paper has morphed into fabric. Currently the pieces either involve fabric or paper, but not both. This may change in the future for I have some splendid ideas. I also have a few ideas which involve torso scale installations. For now enjoy the two images below.

Drying right now in the home studio and will be on display (& for sale!) next Sunday, I present three experiments in glue:

Oh did I mention that these three were inspirational to me? I started another piece which is much larger, 8″x10″ (lol), which in turn inspired an idea for an installation. Unfortunately there isn’t enough time to create this idea in time for the art show (Sunday, May 19 noon to 6pm 333 Newark St, Hoboken, NJ – Closing Studio Party  https://www.facebook.com/events/479697495433104/), but the above pieces and A LOT more will be there. Hopefully you will be too.

Yesterday I made from scratch a bow-tie for a one year old. It is half hand stitched and half machine stitched. The closure is velcro and is adjustable. He should be able to wear it for a couple years!

For December I made a papier mache birthday card for my dad, a abstract fabric monster for a 5 month old, and a felt and button bird to wear to a party for myself.

The card is all recycled paper and stickers I had left over from a project from 6 years ago. The monster is made from felt and cotton (part of a summer dress that is being recycled). It has soft corners so that it can be grabbed easily by small hands or shoved in to a mouth since the baby is teething. Stuffed with organic natural fibers!

Now the bird is an all purpose accessory that I had pinned to my belt. Where it will land in the future is unknown. Maybe on a headband or part of a package for gift giving, or part of a wall decor. Perhaps it will fly into some craft project yet to be started! Until then it is room decor and lovely with its antique buttons.

The open studio tour last Sunday was great. Got everyone coming and going since I showed in the hallway. May have been better than being in a studio. Although I would still like to have my own studio one day. A place where I don’t have to clean the glue off the floor if I don’t want to, even though I still will.

Here are some pictures from the event.
