What I've been doing besides driving Joey to and from preschool...

Several weeks ago I got together with a few of my "inner circle" art friends---I love them dearly! We attended a "work day" held by the Midwest Collage Society. The very talented Belinda came prepared to show us some very cool techniques and projects. We worked with Ranger Color Washes in an altered book format, the Jonathon Talbot collage method and my absolute FAVORITE of the day---little matchbook shrines--- Michael DeMeng style sort of!! Since then I have been industriously cranking out matchbooks!!! They are so much fun! Now I have to figure out what to do with all of them! I have scanned in a few (maybe more than a few--plus an ATC) and my collage that I made with Belinda's guidance---

Shari...you're KILLING me with all of this great artwork!! I LOVE these! I want to know how you do these matchbook assemblages. Anything special I need to know?? I'd love to buy one from you. Are you selling these anywhere? They're very, very cool!!

I am going to ditto Kathy W!!! Awesome! Buy, trade? I saw one once that Lyn Avedikian did and wondered if anyone ever used them??? I cannot imagine that.
