I am thrilledthrilledthrilled to share that I will be teaching a papermaking workshop as part of Mesh Baltimore‘s SkillShare this Saturday, January 19. I will be one of more than a dozen presenters sharing skills and topics we’re passionate about–ranging from the crafty and DIY (like my paperworking workshop and another on wet and needle felting) to awesome skills (like photography and meditation) to the financially savvy (like making a budget or using your smartphone to save dosh). The whole idea and inspiration behind this event resounds with me ever so much:
At Mesh, life-long learning is far more than a catch-phrase; it’s who we are. Our ever-changing array of classes—suggested and taught by local people like you—offers inexpensive and lively ways to satisfy learners’ curiosity and to develop skills they never knew they had (but always yearned for!). Mesh is a place where people come together to learn new things, to share ideas, and to celebrate creativity, ingenuity, and community.
And I don’t think I’m the only one, so I’m eager to get the word out and meet lots of crafty, creative, inspired people this weekend. To that end, I would appreciate it if you got the word out to your network, your tribe via social media and generally hollerin’ it off a mountain or pier—doubly so if you’re near to the Baltimore area. As some extra special motivation, I’m posting my first blog giveaway: I’m offering two lucky winners some handmade paper of their very own, either in the form of six handmade paper hearts (see above) or one simply stitched booklet of handmade paper. To be entered into the giveaway, enter these simple steps:
- Share this post on Twitter and/or Facebook;
- For each network you share to, leave a comment below letting me know where you shared it and if you would prefer the handmade paper hearts or the booklet of handmade paper. (Please remember to double-check your email address before submitting your comment.)
- Check back on Tuesday morning when I announce the winners!

FINE PRINT: All entries must be shared and received by 10pm EST on Friday, January 18. While I encourage everyone to share this event, I’m only willing to ship to US addresses at this time. Winners will be contacted by Monday, January 21, and asked to provide a mailing address; in the case of no response, I’ll pick a back-up winner. Winners will be chosen at random. My friends and family are encouraged to enter, same as everyone else!
Thank you so much for supporting both my workshop and the overall event. If you’re in or near the Baltimore area, I definitely recommend you check out the roster of SkillShare sessions and consider registering if a few of those strike your fancy. I hope to see you Saturday!
Thanks for reading!
