Two new fosters for Thanksgiving, continuing with the November “gratitude” creative project, and a wonderful book to read aloud.
Memory, a freak fish tale, e.e. cummings for young readers, and two A to Z books you will want to check out from Maira Kalman.
Celebrating Episode 200 with layers, collage, and a couple of inspiring collage books/artists.
Two books this week, a powerful pair of art journal inspiration titles from Dina Wakley.
Talking about first lines, blank pages, titles, first words, the creative process, and more. This one is for writers and non-writers and artists of all varieties.
Taking inventory of ICAD 2016 and the cards produced this summer.
Another birthday has come and gone. It was a good day. I believe you have to craft and make days to be what you want them to be. I believe this for myself, and it is advice I give
The first in a new series of short episodes, looser in feel, but the same spirit an energy of the CMP. This is the grown up version of the CMP. Challenge: Try the daily journal page described, inspired by Lynda
