My New Bag

This is my new bag, I love it. I got it for 18 dollars at a consignment store called Artifacts, in Iowa City.

I wish that it had a wider shoulder strap.

And I really wish that I hand't spilled coffee all over it this morning.

New Project

Working on a new project, I like to call it "journal as art". 

These are the first two pages:

Maple Syrup

Last year was a record Maple Syrup year, production in Wisconsin was at 200,000 gallons, which is the highest on record and 33 percent above 2008. In 2009 maple syrup sold from 25-45 dollars per gallon.

This year Wisconsin had a rough year for Maple Syrup, not enough cold nights and warm days. Projected Maple Syrup collection is down by 40%.

This means that the 40 gallons of sap that my parents collected, which has been reduced to one gallon of syrup, is worth somewhere between 35-55 dollars per gallon.

Why is it that inspiration is at its best at night? Late at night, after everything that I'm going to get done is done, I suddenly get the urge to create. The night feels like it stretches on forever, as I sew and cut and paste, and draw. But why? Why is it always late at night?

This is a project that I did in preparation for a craft fair, late at night.


I have to admit that the playing card idea is not my own.
