The New Image-Zine

Yes, it is an e-zine. It is loaded with images. It is mostly images. That is why it is an ImagE-Zine.

It is free. You can download and print these beautiful pages, fold them in half, staple with a long-reach stapler and have a journal. You can bind them. You can just cut images out. Just enjoy them.

The ImagE-Zine is HERE.


Art is life, life is art.

I guess I have always been an artist. I guess that’s who I am at heart. Somehow maybe my art had to hide for a lot of my life because I was afraid that I could not lead an artistic life. While I always felt encouraged by my mother, I don’t think I ever believed growing up that someone could truly be an artist. I mean, I knew that someone made art, but I never considered that it was actual, normal, average people with either talent or drive or both.

Then I married into a repressive situation where truly NOTHING was doable. Many things I thought would be wise or fun or healthy or educational or viable were deemed impossible by my mate. They were said to be things that people did in magazines or whatever, and they were often stupid things.

These days I live such an artistic life, it feels odd to NOT be doing something expressive. I feel like I am where I should have been all along.

Maybe instead of “Art is life, life is art,” I should say “Art is MY life, MY life is art. “


Looking for an old video.

I was going through files and looking for an old video. While looking, I am coming across SO MANY PICTURES that I’d forgotten about. Why not share?

Me and my sweet mommy. I would love to go back for a day. 1970-ish.
Me and my sister. 1970s.

Going through photos is heart-warming and heart-wrenching, all at the same time! Life is so beautiful.

If you are so inclined, follow me on YouTube at A Bit of Birdsong. I am very active there with my paper-craft business.

Stay tuned.
