"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?" by Marianne Williamson

Colorful Gems

It is a rainy day today so I decided to work on some things I have been needing to make. A friend of mine at work placed an order for some of my flat-back glass marble push pins. I've got everything finished except to glue the tack to the back. I just love how they turned out. So colorful. These are made using my crayon paper. The leftover sheets (at the right of the photo) will be used to make more (for me!). I usually take any flat-back glass marbles that are not suitable for selling (little flaw or chip in the glass) and make push pins for my home office. And any itsy-bitsy leftover pieces of the paper will be used in my handmade papers. I won't be throwing anything away during this project. :)

PaperMaker Treasury on Etsy!

I am part of a newly created team on Etsy called the Etsy PaperMakers Guild. We are all papermakers and it is so interesting to see how other artists create with handmade paper and what they use during the papermaking process. One of our team members created this Treasury. Check it out:

And here are some photos of my paper. :)
