A Paperbook Mystery in Edinburgh

Someone spent much of last year creating a mystery around the literary world of Edinburgh, Scotland. Mysterious paper sculptures started appearing at the Scottish Poetry Society, and at other major literary venues around the city. I love both book arts and mysteries, and this was a good one. Read a detailed account of this magical story at's blog here.

Inspiration: Mila's Daydreams

                                                                          Copyright ©Adele Enersen

When I was pregnant, I read that babies start dreaming long before they are born. I always wondered what those first dreams were like. My son makes soft little sounds when he sleeps, and moves his arms and legs as though he is always in the middle of an adventure. I stumbled across the blog Mila's Daydreams a few months ago, and have really enjoyed watching as Adele Enerson imagines her daughter's daydreams to life with elaborate sets she creates from fabrics and other props she has around her home. This seems like a project that would be incredibly fun, and leaves her with the most amazing collection of photos of her baby. She compiled them into this lovely little book, which was just released at the beginning of January.

Wait...don't I have a blog around here somewhere?

Um, yeah. So I haven't been coming around all that much lately. In part, it's because I've been busy over here working on a new project. In part, it's because I have been frustrated by some technical issues with the blog and trying to move it to a new location, which I haven't been too successful with. Oh, yeah, and I had a baby. So far, he seems to be taking after me.

But I find myself missing this corner of the blogosphere, and I am feeling a bit more energized about writing these days. So, you may be seeing me around a bit more...
