If you read The Des Moines Sunday Register (which I'm sure people everywhere in America, not just here in Iowa, do) you might have seen the "Handmade in Iowa" article on page 2 of the Iowa Life section. Thanks to Paula Reece for including me. And for spelling my name right. I'm not kidding about that. My name has been misspelled throughout my life. Not to mention mis-pronounced. So I was very happy for some good, free publicity. Great timing, too: Market Day is this Saturday, Aug. 27. And East Village Sunday Bazaar is just two weeks away! Which means I've got to get busy and stay busy making more books.
In other important news, I'm also pleased to announce that my journals and cards are now available at White Rabbit Gallery, at 109 South Linn in Iowa City. You can find out more at www.whiterabbitgallery.com. Definitely worth an in-person visit the next time you're in the Iowa City area. You won't be disappointed. I hadn't been to downtown Iowa City for many years and it was fun to have some time to walk around the ped mall and pretend I was nineteen again.
Back to my paper and glue!

Something very exciting happened a few days ago.....
I travelled south to Osceola to King's Canyon Fine Art and am proud to say that my journals and cards are now available there. King's Canyon is a wonderful place to visit; there is a wide variety of gorgeous art and handmade items by many Iowa artists. And they serve delicious lunches, Tuesday through Saturday. You can find out more on at www.kingscanyonart.com. If you like them on facebook, you'll even get their weekly lunch menus. I had a great time talking with Sara King and her mom, Cheryl, on Tuesday. Sara even invited me to teach a class this fall....wow! I am very excited about that. I am really lucky to meet people like Sara, who I met last year at the East Village Sunday Bazaar, which I am looking forward to doing again this year every Sunday during September and October.
The other big news will be in your Sunday, Aug. 14 edition of The Des Moines Register. I am going to be featured in the "Handmade in Iowa" series, which has featured several people I know from Market Day and as well as the ladies of Ephemera, so I feel quite fortunate to be in such good company!
