This is what started me on my creative frenzy.
I made a book for Jeanne
for her 10th anniversary
I had a very old photo album made
of leather...I dismantled it and
used the front and back.
I had another old chinese poetry book
I glued pages together to make
The front is covered in a waxed parchment
separated into squares by bamboo
I also had this very old chinese box
that made the perfect wrapping.
The front has a little leather coin purse
and a silk handmade napkin holder that
is crochet rings with a bow.
And a soldered copper charm and
a silver bunny earring I took apart...
Inside front cover...her artwork in the middle
Inside the leather pouch is a charm...
"yes we can"
On a "Quaker Relief" stamp
her picture...and red thread
This was a black and white photo copy
of BBTB logo...I water colored
and covered in wax
Here is a hand colored picture of
Everyone wrote a short essay on what they
I made a page of the person
and their essay...
Here is Suzanne and Bea
Here is Cory's page
I cut out a running bunny on each page
...little bits of thought...
...a copy of the famous letter
sent to us 10 years ago...
This is the last page.
I cut out 2 drawers.
One holds a necklace on a red string
the other holds 10 candles
This labour of love... opened the flood gates...
to what was to follow...
