    Come visit beautiful Florida in the spring! I'll be teaching a 3 day journal workshop at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps in Lake Worth, Florida. We'll have fun painting photos and creating a journal.
  • Workshop in Bruges, Belgium. Stay Tuned for details!
    ***********This 2014 workshop has been postponed. Don't give up though... the coordinator is working hard to make it happen in 2015! *********** I'm SO excited about teaching in Belgium! It will include photo walks in Bruges (Belgium's Little Venice of the North) where we'll explore, photograph and soak up the ambience of this beautiful city. We'll then paint and create with our photos and make an art journal filled with wonderful Belgium memories.

Thanks dj for the mention and link :)

Your journal is an amazing work of art !
I felt the images you made with the black
stitches reminded me of wire sculpture .
Your paintings of birds and the binding
were some of my favorite parts of this
huge undertaking and commitment to
serious work . I admire your talent

Your book is so amazing! I just keep staring at it. I wish I could take one of your classes. Would you ever consider traveling to Fayetteville, Ark????


Always enjoy seeing your beautiful creations.

Your book is stunning. I know you're going to have a fantastic class.


Thank you friends!
Laurie, Nellie is coming to the workshop too! It's going to be SO much fun!


oh DJ, it is just fabulous. I've actually been working on mine, someday it will get please take lots of class photos...I know you tend to get wrapped up and forget (smile) I signed up for Nellies classes this summer to get me inspired to work with papers and fabrics!! Have a wonderful summer


Oh DJ, it is beyond beautiful... As a girl who carries a book everywhere she goes, I dream of carrying one like this. I try to imagine how a book like this would feel in my hands, the softness of the paper and fabric, the stitches, the fun spine with buttons, the painted cover... :) :) :)
