  2. Deborah's work and her blog has gotten me very interested in collage though I'm not sure where to begin. (Why is it sometimes difficult to simply jump in and start something new?) I'd love to learn with her book; she definitely sounds like an excellent teacher. I'm glad I discovered your blog through this book giveaway. Thanks!

  28. As an adjunct instructor in Advertising & Graphic design, getting ready to sem-retire and get back to "my own work" --- whatever that is now --- and a seamstress / weaver / painter for decades also, I am looking into ways to combine those skills and my extensive collection of materials. This sounds like a great kick-start for creativity!
