Jinxie Goforth

This gorgeous package arrived yesterday. What a wonderful surprise it was to open the carton and find Jinxie's beautiful work inside.

Jinxie's artist's journal is a fantastic addition to my collection. It's made if tabbed pages and bound with fibres and little charms. The fork and spoon blew me away. They are among the most original and delightful pieces of work I've seen this year. The message on the bowl and tines reads, "Feast your heart on hope". Right now, I'm trying to come up with a good idea for displaying them. And I'm truly looking forward to using the goodies contained in the baggie in a work of my own.

Toni Curtis

Take a look at this fabulous spiral-bound visual journal I received from Toni Curtis. The cover is a relief painted with subtle metallic shimmering colors, which may be Lumiere paints. Inside, the journal contains a sumptuous combination of papers, pockets, tags, art, and ephemera.
