What I have been up to

I have been getting nasty message, notes and comments that I haven't updated my blog in a long time. I had no idea that my musings were held so dear. MY FANS.....my darling fans.........this is why I have been unable to write. I have been very busy.

I have been busy running for Miss Florida

But my Paper Art does help me relax


Sleepers, Dreamers & ScreamersBy Emily Martin2006. Edition of 15.
9.5 x 7 x 2"; 12 pages. An accordion construction with five double page pop-ups. Printed letterpress with hard covers.

First and last pop-ups constructed using assorted Asian, Western and dollhouse papers. Three middle pop-ups constructed using a handmade cotton and Philippine gampi paper made for the project by Bridgett O'Malley of Cave Paper. Text and figures printed in letterpress on BFK white and buff papers from polymer plates. Font is American Typewriter. Housed in cloth clamshell box with paper title on spine. Paper title label on front of matching cloth covered book boards.
Begun in 2001, Sleepers, Dreamers & Screamers was derailed by events of 9-11. The text was rewritten in the aftermath.
We've all had nightmares. Vivid as they may be there is always that sweet release upon waking. But what happens when events in our waking lives surpass even our most horrific dreams. Where is our release now?
I'm really very tired.....


OMG, that is too funny, you are a freakin' riot!

I feel your pain. I have a certain 'Mr. M' who is most distraught if I don't update my blog. Fame can be hard...

I never knew your mom's name was Rose Mary. Cool. That makes you Rose Mary's baby.
