"La Chaise par Papa". Sorry for the poor picture and the messy background (you know I have a little more space in my new home but I hate trying to find a new place for everything). It is not a "chaise percée" but a basic chair from Ikea that Papa mounted and he builded the underneath box that I requested to put my stamps. Happy Father's Day Papa!

This is my studio work table as of yesterday. I went through a plastic box and a tall pile of received mail and put it in order in a new wooden box. I responded to lots of mail, finally, and registered almost all of the Andrea McNeill Found-Art pieces that I'd received, some from as long ago as 2014! Aaagh, I can't blame that on my recovering last summer from surgery, which I HAD been blaming for my back log. It feels good to have a tidier work space, and to be back on track responding to lots of people who've sent me lovely mail. Also, I'm working on a watercolor illustration for a new-ish baby. His mum requested it, as I'd done one for her when she was a baby and she still had it! How could I refuse.

Hi Vizma!  Yes, your help was critical.  My old brain actually learned a new trick!  Yes I made the top brown/black handmarbled sheet (it was done on a Japanese solid color paper called momigami).  I bought the other B & W sheet of tree branches - I think it was made in Thailand.  Wish I could invite you over to go on a mini shopping spree here in my flat file.........

Debra!!! I'm over the moon that I could help to get these photos shown here!! Really fabulous to see! I love the papers on the drying rack, the top brown and the black and white one, did you make those? And those drawers? I'm really drooling...

Thanks for sharing your pics!

Lovely Papers! And your place looks also laboratory like, artchemestry.

Great! Would like to work there and complete my smallbook collection where I store my used papers to remember.

Thanks for viewing.

Hi Vizma,

Thanks for your instructions on uploading to the group page.  It was quick and easier than I thought, but would have NEVER figured it out on my own.

I start by sharing a view of what's on the other side of the wall.  My husband's insane home laboratory - full of toxic chemicals!!!!  He assures me that's not true, but..... it is.  He is a crazy protozoologist.  You can see my flat file got incorporated into his space.  Not ideal, but it is a great thing for any paper collector.  I pulled out only two drawers to photograph. The printed are Japanese papers which I love.  There are many more that I don't have - and the solids are also Japanese called Momigami.  They are heavy and wrinkled.   Other drawers are handmade Idaho papers, handmarbled sheets I made myself years ago with a textile artist.  The stuff on the drying racks were treated with konnyaku, which makes even fragile thin paper waterproof and sturdy with a mat finish.  Love it.  Good for making envelopes.
