Zodiac Rotation for May

This month the Zodiac rotation came in a very ornate book shaped box. Next spring when the year is over, we all get together to show off the final projects to all. Without this get together we will never know what the results were. Plus, it is a great excuse for a party.

This goes out tomorrow and the next surprise should arrive next week.

The Moroccan Love Shack

After replacing the cloth cover for the Moroccan Love Shack every year, we decided it needed a facelift. So, channelling Tony Duquette and his philosophy that "more is more", we have made it this delightfully odd oasis. At night the candles glow against the corrugated metal roof - great place for a glass of wine, a good book or a nap. Houseguests have even requested that they sleep out there instead of a regular room in the house.

Zodiac Rotation

There are twelve of us artists that are doing a group book (loose use of the word). Each person starts their own book project and each month is goes to the next person on the list for that person to do that month's zodiac sign. At the end we each have a book with art from twelve people. It is like Christmas each month when we get our new book. As always, I am learning about creative possibilities with each person's art.

Karen Cole started hera in an old hat box with a vintage piece of quilt. Her Aries ram was made with jewelry. On reading about Taurus, I learned a lot about the feminine in the sign so I decided to approach it that way.
