• Peace in the Studio

    Posted on December 27, 2014 by in Studio

    My first real day in the studio since early September AND I’m still in my pajamas! Heaven. The task is pretty pedestrian—making envelopes out of recycled calendars for our late (again) holiday cards. It has been a meditation to fold, cut, and tape these business sized envelopes. An unexpected treat is reading the other sides of the pages—seeing the calendar entries of those activities that kept me so busy this last year or so.

    The envelopes are sitting on my massive paper cutter (30″ x 36″), located for me by my dear brother-in-law at an auction somewhere in the Great Plains. I will have to squeeze myself into the back corner to use the giant cutting blade but it is happy to be sitting on a secure surface and back at work. I have used it so much already that I’m wondering what I ever did without it. I’m not losing much table surface space since I can place my cutting mat on the top.

    My next project is to create the books and materials list for the two OLLI classes this Spring. More on that later…..

    Can’t wait to see your new, rather dangerous-looking toy! It’s beautiful!

    I find making envelopes meditative as well. It’s so relaxing. Ahh…

    I look forward to hearing the details of your upcoming classes… and everything else you’ve been up to. May your 2015 be filled with much bookish goodness!
