Everything looks LOVELY! I know this workshop will go fabulously!!!! :) I hope you are well - don't know if you are near where the earthquake happened. Much well wishes to all! Theresa

very spooky looking page! the old lace suggests something hidden in a box(or coffin) for a long while. hope you sell it all !p.s. your son is looking very grown up. not a baby anymore

Seth said...

All the work you are doing is paying off. These pieces are all so unique and compelling.

Debrina said...

Hi everyone - yes, we're fine, thank you so much for asking. The earthquake hit the South Island of NZ and we're in the North. Having said that, though, the quake was felt by our dogs who apparently sounded like crying babies at the time the quake hit. I was staying the night at a friends at the time and we felt nothing. And YES Mar - those rings were meant to look like bones! Hooray, my experiment worked. Originally the book had black spirals. Thanks Seth for such a lovely comment. You sweet thing you! And Lyle, yes, isn't Jason looking like a young man now!

I'm drawn to the quirky bracelet. So many wonderful things pouring forth over the last month or two. Great ideas Debbie. Glad you are far from the quake.

Art said...

Mmm, love the inside of the box--always such a nice surprise to open something and see more than a plain surface.

First you have shared wonderful works...are you and your family and your home ok? The earthquake was devastating and the photos we have received are incredible. I am so grateful that no one was killed. Time will help the people come together and rebuild. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

I started to say Hi Sweetie!! but some of the art at the top made me think I might get beheaded for such lame language:) Awesome art, lady, the journal is amazing as are the other images. And Jason is, well, a cutie patootie - do you use that expression there? ha. Best luck with your workshops!!!

xxoo
p.s. my word verification is 'ackeh' - does that not sound like throat clearing???

Lucky Dip Lisa said...

Wow lady! Your stall is going to rock big time. Oh, 2weeks? is that now? Oh, I hope it's going well for you, you totally deserve it. Love the bracelet idea, bet that sells in a flash! Thankyou for your emails and comments. Life's been crazy but I appreciate you taking the time to send my the love!

Those bracelets are fantastic Deb! I think that other little thing you made is my favourite though. (Jason)

Can't wait to hear how you do at the craft fair.
