"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Making paper

I like handmade cards to accompany my purchased weaving's. I used a jigsaw to make my mold and deckle from 1/4" scrap plywood. I really like the greyish-purple color that I got from using dye. I did the papermaking outside which eliminated the mess aspect. In the picture this is the recycled cotton paper cards with matching envelopes drying in the sun.

  1. Your talents never cease to amaze me. 🙂

  2. Oh, so pretty!! I made paper once with a group of homeschoolers including my daughter, and it was really fun. We also did most of our work outdoors!

  3. I've never made homemade paper, truly a work of art you have created! Which makes receiving the weavings such a double joy for your customers!
