Day 12-Book Blog Tour

I am so happy to announce the next stop on the Blog Tour- my friend Laurie Blau-Marshall. Laurie and I have known each other for um, 34 years-egads! I swear it doesn’t seem possible!

But there are pictures to prove it, now don’t laugh, remember this was a loooooong time ago….

Homecoming circa 1979-remember Gunne Sax dresses (if you don’t just pretend so we don’t feel old ok?) well now you can get ‘Vintage Gunne Sax’ dresses on Etsy.

Laurie and I lived right across the street from each other and shared many things, clothes, makeup, school locker, and a love for doodling and making things pretty.

Here are some pages I still have from then, I now think of them as the first art journal pages

Many years went by and we had lost touch with each other, but 2007 found us both chosen for the same ZNE Design team! I actually still get goosebumps when I remember the feeling of realizing that Laurie Blau-Marshall was THE Laurie Blau!! Thank goodness for the hyphen or it may have taken us a  lot longer!

This was taken when we finally met up again a few years back. Art brought us back together and Laurie was the first one to tell me about an awesome magazine called ‘Cloth Paper Scissors’.  I’m so happy that we found each other again and that she agreed to participate in the book.
