the paper playhouse winner!

Happy Monday, everyone! I just ended a brutal week of non-paying work (what's new) that will hopefully turn into something great, but no guarantees. I am looking forward to resting my hands for one day here after a nice 12 hour sleep last night. I hope you are all doing well!

We have a winner of my giveaway of Katrina Rodabaugh's beautiful new book, The Paper Playhouse. Generated by an online random number generator, the winner is "Emily Marlise". I have no information from you, Emily Marlise, but I have a sneaking suspicion I might know you. So, send me an email at sfcornerblog at hotmail dot com and we'll get the book sent off to you pronto!

Thank you to all who entered. I'll be back soon, lots to share.



los angeles workshops!

I am really excited to announce that I have THREE Valentine's Day themed workshops I will be teaching at French General in Los Angeles on February 6th and 7th. I cannot wait to finally visit Kaari, Robert and the gang and see all the beautiful wares there. I will probably spend all the money I make teaching there before I leave!

If you live in the area, I would love to see you! And, if you have friends in Los Angeles that you think would enjoy these great workshops, spread the word! It would be great to fill these classes to make the trip even more worthwhile.

Here are the links to register for each of the three workshops. Also, I will be teaching the rose de Granville class at Handcraft Studio School on February 1st. You can sign up for that class HERE.

the paper playhouse + a giveaway! (CLOSED)

Today is the first day of my New Year! Happy New Year! The opening of my show, Dead of Winter, was wonderful, and I am rested and ready to start preparing for the new things coming in this new year.(Mostly trying to keep papel SF afloat, hate to have to stop now!) I haven't been rested like this in about four or five months. I was in bed all weekend, except for packing Christmas away which felt really good.

I don't know that I have that many regular readers these days, as I am not a regular poster here lately (although I would like to be), so I am not sure how many people will see this, but I have a little fun news and a little fun giveaway for you. This past summer I was lucky enough to become acquainted with a group of Bay Area craftswomen, artisans and artists. They took me into their fold and I was able to learn a lot from them in the few times we lunched and hung out during 2014. Great people. 

One of those great people was Katrina Rodabough. Katrina is an artist, writer and crafter who I admire for her pursuits involving slow fashion and her general aesthetic overall. Katrina has written a BEAUTIFUL book entitled "The Paper Playhouse; Awesome Art Projects for Kids Using Paper, Boxes, and Books", published through Quarry Books. The book has wonderful projects that I have never seen in other places, great original crafts to make from a great range of easy to find paper products. It is a sweet, sweet book. You can see some of the fun projects and beautiful photographs and read much more about the book HERE on Katrina's blog.

My favorite section of the book.

I should also mention that Katrina was sweet enough to include me in the artist gallery near the end of the book. I am so honored! What a thrill for me. So fun to see yourself in print, and wow, I'm in great company in the gallery.

Katrina has offered a giveaway for the book, and you can enter simply by leaving a comment below letting me know you're interested. I will close the contest at noon on Friday, January 23rd and announce the winner Monday morning, January 26th. So go ahead and leave a comment, so easy! Please note, for shipping purposes the winner must have a valid mailing address in the US, Canada, or the UK.

Have a great day, and hopefully I'll see you back here sooner rather than later. xoxo
