Saskatchewan Spring and some other stuff

After a high of 18ºC on Sunday afternoon, March went out like a lion with a brief blizzard on Monday.

There wasn’t a lot of snow but there was a great deal of wind, causing drifting.

This gave David the opportunity to try out his new snowblower —bought in preparation for next winter’s snow— on Tuesday.

He had far too much fun.

By Wednesday things were melting again.

The pussy willows have been out for a while but are definitely bigger than they were.

For much of the week (when I wasn’t at the dentist’s office again — but that’s several other stories) I worked on my second entry for Dimensions.

We are not supposed to show entries online before the jurying, so all I can show you is more folded paper, which doesn’t give a whole lot away.

The image above shows the first step in the folds below.

The selected works won’t be announced for a while, so you will have to wait to see what I have been making. I hope to have a new DIY project for next week’s post.


In other book arts news:

Many places are still offering online classes.

You might want to check out the selection at the Center for Book Arts in New York. They seem to have something for all ages and interests. Most classes are “pay-what-you-can”.

In order to best serve our community near and far, many of our online classes are pay-what-you-can. While each class has a suggested price, we wish to make our educational programming as economically accessible as possible as well as to make sure our students feel fulfilled in their creative processes outside of the studio. The amount you choose to pay goes directly toward our instructors and toward creating scholarship opportunities for the future.

Because this is such a short post today, I am including a bonus flick: Pixie Kolesa’s Emerson College BFA film Elizabeth-Antiqua.
