Ciao, dear hearts..

This journal can easily be adapted to use with a 

sewing machine

or even just using glue for the collaged cover..


but the signatures do need to be stitched into the book..

I hope you enjoy it and the next videos

that create the pages, inside covers and some collage..

as always, I so appreciate your kind

Can you believe it's 
Spring Break?

I am ready for a rest.. and a little holiday..
I hope you are ready too..

But let's stitch slowly and put some
small brooches together..

up cycling paper, fabric and jewelry pieces..

See what you think..
I hope you enjoy it..
try it and stitch to your heart's content..

Happy Holiday to you..

Thanks always for watching and stopping by..

Mini Chunky Pocket Book

It's a great weekend for book making..

so lets make a pocket book..


Just for fun..

to store lots of fun bits..

I imagine oodles of them..

in a big round tin..

like little cake slices..

Mixed Media, Slow Stitch -Stitch a Thon!


Ciao gentle readers and viewers..

let's do some stitching..

and add some fun bits and chunks..

I thought photos and transfers and dyed cloth would be so fun to use..

I hope you try it and have some fun

with the process

and let go of perfection..

just stitch and breathe

stitch and breathe..

be well.. stay healthy..

One of the crazy things I always

ask myself in the studio

is ...
"I wonder if these things will play together well?"

this usually means that I am on to something good..


that is how this turned out.. 

so I hope you try it and see where it leads you..

I love the combo and the paper overlays..

enjoy your creations!

stay healthy..
be well!

Ciao, gentle readers and viewers..

there is a grim reality

that I wanted to capture..

and I wanted to honor what we are all going through..

 so I dedicated a journal to this experience..

Of thought and processing..

about how our lives have changed..

and I thank you for watching and for listening to my

journey as we watched it all unfold.

As we all keep stitching our lives back together again.

May we all be healthy..

May we live in peace...
