What I've Been Up To...

I've been working feverishly on a few new things for the holiday season, and one of the things I'm very excited about is this handmade paper that I've been making with my daughter this week. It was once a pile of cotton paper scraps I'd trimmed from other projects. Now it's a stack of light, soft, feathery paper we recycled ourselves. This afternoon, it's being transformed into something else, which I will share over the weekend. But before I do that, I had to try to capture its beauty in a photograph. Until the weekend...

Update: the result of the handmade paper is here.


  1. this took my breath away - i want to float away on it :)

  2. Was the sun shining directly over your house alone today? That paper is gorgeous, and I don't think you'd need to do anything to it. But I know what you do will be even more amazing.

  3. That is absolutely gorgeous - both the paper and the photo! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  4. hi christy! i'm happy to reconnect with you. i love that you made this gorgeous paper with your daughter. i make art in my studio with my little guy every day and it's amazing what we can do together. love your beautiful blog.
