mini book author!!











one of my big life goals when i was in high school was to write a book. i loved writing and found all the english writing assignments to be both thrilling and inspirational. as an adult, life took me down many paths but none of them included writing a book. recently i've gotten back into writing and i don't know when i've been as emotionally satisfied. i did some freelance poetry writing for an ad agency last month and now i'm working on my "she" series of original stories with matching original mixed media collages. the first collage in the series sold over the weekend and now i've created the above mini book which i love!! so as you can see i've officially written a book, even if it's only a mini book. hee hee

the "she loved books" mini book and print are both available in my etsy shop!  



here's my short haircut, taken at the water park over the weekend (a girls weekend for my daughter, megan, her daughter jenna and me). thanks for all your sweet words!

Books, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. This one is adorable. And I identify completely with your love of words as well as art...all methods of self expression.

I'm so proud of you, Julie! It looks great! Both your book and hair. Doesn't it feel so good to get your art out there in so many ways. I am truly happy for you. I loved it when you showed pictures of your art studio. Where do you write?
