Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written over the past 25+ years, as well as my travel journals and announcements.  Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Buttons and Tours

Button Button - who's got the button?  Beppa Does!

I'm excited to be shopping the Beppa Button Sale this weekend, which I hear is one of those local events that you're not supposed to miss... although I have missed it every year thus far ...

Beppa Studio is located at 7700 6th Ave NW, Seattle WA 98119.  This show runs August 26-27 from 10am - 4pm.  For more information about Beppa Studio and its artist owners, please visit their website.

I will be shopping for fun things to add to new hats, some of which may make their debut at the upcoming Arts North Studio Tour in the North Seattle.  See me at Design One Ltd. Studio, one of 10 artist studios who are hosting a total of 34 artists, artisans and craftspeople for this event.  

So, save the date and visit all of us, September 10-11 from 10 AM - 5 PM.  Visit the website for a downloadable map, or email me to request a full color copy via the US Mail. You can also follow the tour on Facebook.
