These days are cold and white...
A perfect time for working in my studio
and window watching.
In the winter we have more birds than ever visit our feeders,
the jays and song birds, the quail and woodpeckers.
Small and large birds all together in the maple tree out front with the frozen river and snowy fields beyond.
And seeds hang on to their branches...
their time to fly is not here yet.
And on winter evenings the world turns blue,
a blueish white that glows
and casts a magical spell of wellbeing
on my little town over the river.
I have been working on a big project, the biggest project since my book, Storytelling with Collage...
which will be out in March and you can pre-order here.
My online workshop is called Pathways and Wanderings and we begin on January 3rd! I purchased a hi-definintion camera just for this and some very special projects for Cloth Paper Scissors in the spring. I even got a special light that mimics daylight so that I can videotape my workshop on dark stormy days!
Oh, I have learned so much! Isn't it a wonderful thing to learn and then to create with all your new knowledge? I have learned about lighting and sound and color, and themes and transitions and adding titles. And even more important I have become comfortable with my video camera and move it around to different spots in the house with ease, depending on what I want to film.

There is still time to join, we go live on January 3rd
and you can work with me or go at your own pace!
Here is a glimpse at some of the projects
that I will be teaching:
