I have a show coming up in Portland on November 6,7,8. Today I am making some small 3x3 Christmas Accordion Books. I thought I would share them with you. I lettered the words of the Scripture in Isaiah 9:6 in the Blackletter hand. Then I had the words printed in 4 sections and scored. I put them all together to form a small, accordion book.

I did this calligraphic design several years ago in a class that I took and then redid it just awhile ago. I guess I just love the juxtaposition of the french and the english together plus I love the sentiment. A great goal to love someone today even more than yesterday!

I just this minute got home from driving to California to see my daughter. I took along lots of pictures to blog but no wireless at her house so posting today. We had fun and got a lot done in her new house though. Now for the laundry and the laundry and checking out the fridge to see what doesn't look good. (:
This piece of calligraphy was lettered on a piece of handmade paper made by my friend, Jan Molder. Check out her beautiful papers, jewelry and lamps at her website at www.wyldewoodpapers.com/.

I always have good intentions about creating more art for my blog and here it is Sunday again. Where did the week go? I guess I was busy this week creating two covers for my church. One is the cover for the History and one is the 2009 Directory Cover. They were fun but I hope you enjoy today's quotation, peace to you.
