Sisterhood of the Traveling Canvas

Well I mugged the mail lady today and finally got my copy of the latest Somerset Studio. She asked how I knew the magazine was coming so I showed her the article and she ended up staying to chat for several minutes:-) It is good to be friends with the mail lady!
I am saving this to read on a plane tomorrow (if all goes well) but on my first run through I was excited to see several friends in addition to the sisters of the traveling canvas. Chrysti Hydeck has the most wonderful artist papers as the free gift inside, gorgeous as well as sharing her technique for making them! Lorraine Reynolds has two amazing assemblages that jumped right out at me.
And then there’s the ‘Sisterhood’. Eight women who came together on the Etsy forums to form the bonds of friends and sisters. Sharing techniques, giving advice, sharing the joys and sorrows of everyday life. Our own little community supporting each other in the way that only another artist can.
When I first had the idea of doing the Sisterhood of the Traveling Canvas, I had a much different vision of what it would be. I realize now that it is what it was meant to be all along. It was the best experience, creating and letting go and watching it develop into it’s final state. Thank you sisters for sharing this experience with me and for all of the other day to day sharing that takes place in our little world.
