Behold the beauty and the awesomeness that is Calluna
I received my first package!!
step into an introduction/scrapbook extraordinaire
Calluna has been so generous with me in sharing herself that I'm struggling to pick out the parts that are most amazing... here are just a couple as tasters
She included heaps of local pamphlets/maps/guides/ephemera from around where she lives now, memories of where she's come from and places she's travelled to.
And then there are pages like this one that are (more deeply?) about things that are important to her (and me!!). I even got my very own hand carved stamp!
And there were cards! I love the one that says "We usually don't get so dolled up for this, but drag is fun once in a while"... hehe
not to mention these goodies... (the calorimetry is passed on from another crafter to calluna to me, as is the fabric, the cd is an original with a dvd of ozomatli performing live.... can't wait to watch it!)
Leading up to the (as yet blank) book of rants. Symbolising beautifully the tyranny of beauty. How well the faceless woman covered in tape wih ther hands tied captures the constant struggle women face regardless of whether they fit stereotypes of beauty....
all leading up to this masterpiece of embroidery!! If there is one image that would allow me to have hope rather than despair, this would be it.
Lots and lots of love and hugs and snuggles and admiration to calluna, thank you so much.
