we make money not art

we make money not art has some provocative content. Yes, the subtitle may put you off a bit, but scroll down. Sometimes I need a bit of shock/schlock to clean out all the history bits clining in my head. Then I can get back to "traditional" embroidery with a keen sense of why I am such a stick-in-the-mud.

Incredible Pop Up Fun

Robert Sabuda shares his wonderful talent as a pop up book designer.

I adore pop up books and have several in my collection. I can see I need to print out and create at least one of his - his new OZ book. I am a Baum fan since childhood and relish the idea of creating my own OZ book.
