Anybody Miss Me?

I miss you guys. But, it is hard to motivate myself to work on the blog these days. I am on Instagram the most and I really like it.
I don't want to repost here what is on IG but I do know some loyal blog followers are not on IG and miss seeing things...
What to do?
I have a whole new (very old) stash of wonderful papers like these and old, old books and I have so many projects going on you wouldn't believe it.
That's the way I like it -- busy, busy with lots of ideas.

We've had two - count 'em - two - mail art meetings since I last posted and they have been great.
My artistamp passport is really getting filled up too.

For our September meeting, we were very lucky to have Mandy Ross  speak and do a slide show of her fabulous collection of old scrapbooks.
Mandy is @paperofthe past on Instagram and
here is the link to her website
She just happens to live in San Francisco and was nice enough to come and talk to us. You've got to check out her website or IG, you're going to love it.

She loves old paper too.....and she joined out group...

Some scrapbook pages....pretty wonderful, right? I keep thinking (and hoping) someone will collect all the stuff I make one day when I'm gone...

For our October meeting, Deble did a demo of making fan books. She inspired the whole group and I think we all went back to our studios and made them. So easy and so much fun....

You can see why they are called fan books. Very cool.

I went home and made this one for a certain little kid I know! Pretty cool.  You can use them as a birthday greeting and put dollar bills inside for a young child....I can think of lots of themes for them and all those pockets..

And, here's an accordion book I made using airmail envelopes. I like anything with an air mail theme. Those stripes! Those colors! These two book styles are quite similar and both super easy and fun to make.

You can't just make things ALL the time so I invited a couple of pals to lunch on one of these very fine fall days. Fig tart and friends and fun. A nice way to spend an afternoon.
LOTS going on here -- SF Library BIG Book sale coming right up, a couple of trips for me, loads of art projects happening all at once....
I'll post more photos soon.

And just remember --
Over and out.
