Eco Books Inventive Project from the Recycling Bin by Terry Taylor Amazon Link
I’m so excited, I just can’t stop squeeing. My wonderful UPS man dropped off a box of these books for me just 15 minutes ago. I immediately cracked one open and found my project. I’m on page 48 & 49 with a bio in the back.
There’s a back story about my Book Jar that I feel I should share. My grandfather, aka my hero, passed away in September of 2007. This project was part of my healing process after his passing. I used to visit my grandparent’s house after school when I was a kid. When I would come in he would ask me what I learned for the day. Whatever my reply, his was always the same, “Learn all you can and can all you learn.” There were many tears shed during the months of creating all those tiny books while thinking back on my precious time with him. I’m so proud of my tribute to him.

Yesterday, while I was working at the shop, a very lovely lady (who’s name escapes me at the moment) was hanging work for the new show at Zazzy’z. One of the artists that has work in the show is Rice Freeman-Zachery. She has a book out called Living the Creative Life: Ideas and Inspiration from Working Artists. Her work is amazing fabric journal pages. She has an Etsy shop: Voodoo Cafe and a website Voodoo & Zen. I highly recommend that you check out her work.
I just returned home from another fun filled evening at the Appalachian Arts Center. Tonight’s gallery reception was for an excellent artist that I was already excited to hear speak about her work. I was even more in love with her work after hearing her speak.
