Featured Artist

I hope to have a Featured Artist here once a month. So, if you know of any amazing artists or it's yourself please email me at:

During a search on the web for making handmade books I came across this site by Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord. At her other web-site she has beautiful handmade paper sculptures. It's a must see. All natural elements. I love it. I believe Susan is currently focusing on making books with childern. It must be a very rewarding experience to be able to share your passion with others. Can you just imagine learning how to make your books by hand as a child. I would have loved to have learned the art of it as a child. Thank you Susan for letting me feature you here on my blog.

Here are her other sites and email:
