This picture isn't the best and I had to split it up as it's 20 inches tall. I wasn't sure if I could tip the picture that was on it's side around so used this one! It's for the collage society show at Downers Grove Library in April. The theme is Earth Stories and I really like this quote.
I've been collecting eggs since I took a Ukrainian egg workshop when we lived in Iowa. They do take patience! I have eight that I made and the one with the tulip, the black one with pinkish lines I bought. The rust colored one with kind of a quilt style design I made for the workshop I'm doing at the Center this week. Maybe next year I'll try to do the workshop on the Ukrainian eggs.

I told Beverly I'd post these photos of the tree whispers display at the Newberry Library. It's an exhibit that a teacher from Columbia College has beenworking on for nine years. She and another artist made handmade paper rounds and sent them out to schools, calligraphers, and anyone interested to write their "tree stories". Some are beautiful and artisitic, along with some by children done in crayon. Then you'll see the trees displayed -hung on string to create the trees...
