First of all thank you for visiting my blog and also for your nice comment on my ceramic books. Now let me tell you that because of you I have not been working today in the office (lol) cause I got lost into your blog.
Good lord! I was totally stunned by your art and as a minibook lover I do not have the words to tell you how much I love your work.
And to name just a few: Your ATCs cricut and bugs - the wed sampler dreams - I was drooling over your handbound journals (my favorites)- your garden entry for the CBH challenge and babbling over your perpetual calendars - last but not least your acrylics and mash and also the card "Renate Thanks" Yeah! what can I say...I have spent hours on your site. I have altered few canvases but the ones I saw on your site top them all and really sparkle my creative juice.
I became a follower and will check your blog pretty often. Some of us are creative and others are talented, well you got both creativity and talent and god bless you for it. Please keep delighting us
Congratulations on such great job you do and sharing it with us is even greater.
You rock! Shallale

I just visited your link to "ALL" the art work you do! WOW is all I can say and "I WISH YOU LIVED NEAR ME" lol
I just love all your work, you are such a very talented lady!!! I have light years to go before I can even begin to come close to creating what you have.
Where do you find all your time to do these things? Are you a teacher or do you give classes?
Just wanted to send you a note and let you know I love your work, I'm sure many have sent the same sentiments to you.

All I can say is WOW! I have spent a long time looking at your website in AWE! You are one, talented and creative lady. So many things, too numerous to mention. I guess my favorites have been the calligraphy reviews of workshops, plus all your fabulous books that you've made!
Thanks for sharing with the world!!
I think I came across your site after doing afor ABC and ATC cards, as our local calligraphy guild is thinking of such a project!
So glad I stumbled upon your site!

Hi There, I was browsing the internet and came across your beautiful cards. I wanted to see if you’d be interested in ‘trading’ a card for one of our new adhesives or glue pen? I am collecting art created with our markers and would like to post your card on our office display. Let me know your thoughts.

I was just touring your web site and came across your Sculpey ATCs. I am wondering a few things as I create mine a bit different... I love them. I have bee creating more ATCs and use it as a form of exploration into future works... anytime you want to trade just let me know.
H20s I guess I will have to find out what they are?
Embossing powder... Do you use a heat fun after put them on your piece? even after glazing them?
What glaze do you use: I use the one for Sculpey.. but arer there others.
Thanks for your detailed notes with all your art.

Hi Yogi: I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I enjoyed your class this afternoon. I love my "journal", even though I intend to take the binding apart and fix my loose signature. I look forward to taking your lettering classes. I have spent the past few hours surfing your website - you are definitely a talented lady.Hugs --- Marian (I sat to your right today)

I promise I will not use yours, but I will be using Kersals and I do have something in mind!!
I was interested in your marble backgrounds and wondered if you have ever tried shaving foam to get the same effect?
Sorry for rambling, but I find that when I come across something new I get rather carried away!!
I shall be popping back to you site to see what you are up to.
Kind regards, Jan Peel

I just wanted to tell you what a great web site you have and that I am so tickled that you posted your work done at my pointed pen workshop. I so enjoyed meeting you and loved your sense of wonder and humor. Your cards are outstanding as well. I hope to get to re-visit your group again soon.
Peace and Love

The paper I used for Gail's card was Fabriano's Cartera Magnani. It is sold in a couple of art supply stores here but not in large sheets - in pre-cut card sizes and envelopes. It doesn't seem to sell well, so I thought I'd try it! I love the spring green colour but they also have lilac and pale blue I think...
I wonder what the indigo/blue Pilot parallel pen ink would look like on the black paper and if it would be enough of a contrast on the black 'Q' piece you did (and will redo)? I'd love to see what you come up with.
I'm not a big blogger (mostly because I'm technically challenged;-) but I'll keep looking for your postings.
All good things and all good thoughts to you Yogi; it was a pleasure to be with you for 4 days.

Checked in again – absolutely brilliant! Love all your cards and artwork, and feel I must buy that “crow” stamp from QF for some upcoming birthday cards. Your site is so inspiring, and thank you for sharing. Kind regards, Janet Peters (Warmland Calligraphers)

Yogi, you are amazing! All of your cards from Lynne's class are gorgeous! I was lucky enough to also take a class with Lynn in Toronto at the
Japanese Paper Place in Toronto many years ago and it was equally inspiring. Looks like she has some new alphabets.
Did she offer a book for sale? I'm wondering if she has a new one with these gorgeous alphas? Keep up the great work. Deborah Serré Kingston, ON

Comment: I just checked out your studio - mine is a little smaller than yours but then I don't have quite as much stuff...:) - it's fabulous!!! I love all your storage and organizational ideas.

O Yogi! All those beautiful hand made books make me absolutely itch to do another (but you are PACkinnnnnnnng cries my inner voice). I have one carefully preserved Coptic stitch handbound book which is carefully packed away with my treasures and once settled on the Island I hope to go to classes and learn more!
Suzanne from QuietFire sent on your comments re: my Jounal Blog - thank you for enjoying the read! It certainly has kept me going in the wee smalls to finish 'just one more page' before I go to bed!

Comment: I was introduced to some of your work this week by a member of the Yahoo By Hand Artists group. She brought some swap samples to a meeting of our little local group of Altered Artists. There were some pieces with your Kersals and I fell in love! They were just stunning and I came home that night and started looking through your web site. You "dabble" in so many mediums and have created so much beautiful art. I wanted to let you know you have a fan in me and I think you are so incredibly talented!
Seeing your work has sparked my calligraphic juices all over again and I hope to get pen and ink out and play a lot more. Your new fan, Deborah from Kingston, Ontario

Comment: I’ve been in your studio before but more to be boggled than necessarily to figure out what you were doing and how to imitate it.
But here’s the breakthrough as it were. When I sat beside you on the weekend I DID notice that a) as usual, I took up more than my half of the table – as usual because that always happens when I share a table with someone – I’ve got my stuff all over everywhere and b) whenever you offered me something and I used it, you took it back from wherever I put it down to put away in your stuff and then when I needed it again, you got it from where you’d put it back to and gave it to me again. The penny dropped, as it were, after I got home. It occurred to me that it’s a lot easier to put it somewhere and find it there again than it is to shuffle through what you’ve got to find it again. I’ll tell you though, it made me tired to think of all the THINKING that went into organizing that studio of yours when I looked at your pictures. I’ve got all that stuff (okay not quite that much) but I am in the process of trying to organize it and it’s a slow job with a lot of thinking to figure out what needs to go where and how to get it there. I definitely think you should turn into a consultant for organizing studios. Anyway, I just thought I’d tell you that you had an effect.

Comment: Feeling a bit under the weather today & having no energy to work in the studio, I finally took the time to revisit your web site and view much more of your work. Especially, taking in more of the beauty and creativity of your greeting cards. How prolific you are! Have noted I still have more pages to visit.
On the "Balance" piece I thought there was a typo in the description, then smiled when I realized it was a play on words by combining Sherri Kiesel and versal to create "kersal". Very cute.
May I "steal" this title? :-)

Comment: I found your website via Suzanne Cannon's. I love it. I am a paper addict and I love the pieces you did such as "Shades of White" with various papers. I also like your photography. Could you give some technical information about your photography? What camera did you use, what speed of film and length of exposure. Happy Creating
