new chapters, old leaves

Happy new Year! (Better late than never. ) I've been working on pretty paper things....

My desk has been cleared of jewelry bits and is now a joyful chaos of vintage papers... Their textures are wonderful in natural light that pours through my large studio windows- I think I like photographing them just as much as making things with them- maybe more!

+++ ideas +++

I've been paying more attention to my little brown sparrow shop...adding new pieces and re-photographing some others. The jewellery store still gets love, but it's on the back burner of my mind.

+++ Wonder +++

Is this what my brain is up to? Paper and paste once again in the forefront of my mind? Beads and baubles out? Who can say.

+++ On the Moon +++

Summer is gentle here right now, civilised and quiet like England in June. I'm all for cabbage roses, cream and pink linens, tea time and sunshine... my mind is have a spring clean out (I always was behind on these things) - the sun is getting into the corners and showing up the dust.

2011 is a time of change, in many ways.
