I make all of my own paper using materials that I gather from my home in Western Maryland. I began learning to make paper while I was a geology student at WVU. I simply wanted to make paper for my Christmas cards that year. Things have snowballed a bit since then. During the time I have lived here in WV, I been fortunate to experience the spectacular physical landscape of WV by mountain biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, and exploring the many amazing rivers. It is from these experiences that I draw inspiration for all of my art works, as well as many of the materials.

I spent all day trying to figure out what I wanted to write today. Words failed me. So instead I will share with you the writings of Dan Rather who found the words I did not.

“This Easter, separated from loved ones and comforting rituals, I think of the healing and rebirth embodied by this solemn yet usually joyful day. I think grief, struggle and loss, but also a conviction that love and community can be fountains of hope for the future. “

Hope you cooked something special and zoomed with loved one on this Easter Sunday!

The Butterfly (pamphlet) Stitch. An easy book binding project for Littles and Bigs! Simply fold your pages and cover in half and poke three holes. A few stitches with embroidery floss, raffia, or even a thin ribbon and you have a booklet! You can use construction paper, card stock, craft paper or anything else that strikes your fancy for the cover. I recommend placing your booklet on a folded dish towel and using a thumbtack to poke the holes. Instruction sheet is on the coloring sheets page of my website ABPHArt.com for free download. Feel free to share with your friends! #bookbinding #homemadejornals #wewillgetthroughthistogether❤️ #stayhomestaysafe #nothinglastsforever #abphart

We seem to have skipped spring and gone strait to summer here on the #tundraofmaryland. It. Is. Glorious. Windows open and warm breeze on my skin remind me to find the good in every day. Hope you can find some sunshine between the storms. Much love.

Well y’all, all of my art festivals for the next few months have been cancelled. This leaves me, and all the other artists, scrambling. I will be loading up my Etsy site with lots of new work. I have new bird and In Bloom notecards coming Friday. And I am working on some virtual gallery shows with new work and an online “gallery talk”. In the mean time I posted a new downloadable coloring sheet on my website!

The flat-spired three-toothed snail (Triodopsis platysayoides)—also known as the Cheat three-toothed snail after the Cheat River in West Virginia—is a species of air-breathing land snail. The flat-spired three-toothed snail is found only in West Virginia, among Upper Connoquenessing sandstone outcroppings and boulders, in a restricted area along the rim of the Cheat River gorge. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service considers this snail to be threatened since 1978. The @cheatriverfriends watershed association has to cancel their annual fundraiser this year. If you were planning to attend please consider donating your festival fees anyway. This organization has done and continues to do amazing things. #threetoothedsnail #cheatthreetoothedsnail #friendsofthecheat #abphart #quiltedcollage

All of us either have, or know someone who has little ones that will be home for an extended period of time due to Covid-19. So I have made some free downloadable coloring sheets. They are available on my website, ABPHArt.com. (Link in comments) Please feel free to share.

Ps- coloring isn’t just for kids! Coloring reduces stress and anxiety, improves motor skills and vision, and can improve sleep and focus. Just don’t let anyone tell you you have to color within the lines.

I messed up my frame order 🤦‍♀️. Instead of ordering 11x14 frames with 5x7 art openings, somehow I ordered 8x10 frames with 4x5 art openings. I don’t usually work this small for a bunch of reasons. But, I couldn’t exactly let these frames go to waste! Listed in my Etsy shop is this lovely little town and 9 other minis. I don’t have plans to work this size again so get them while you can!

The humble bicycle had a revolutionary impact on the American women’s movement of the early 20th century. Bicycles gave women the ability to travel without relying on men or horses. Cumbersome and restrictive fashions gave way to bloomers and trousers. Bicycle riding became a symbol of self reliance. Susan B. Anthony said “Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It give women a feeling of freedom and self reliance.” Some said this feeling of self reliance gave women the courage to demand the right to vote.

Alice tripped on a toadstool and tumbled through the fog and mist to the magical towns of Thomas and Davis, WV. She fell in love with this glorious green and mossy mountain scene and decided to stay. “Alice” will be part of the art auction at Frost Fest, a fundraiser for @mllc.wv (mountain laurel learning cooperative). Bid high y’all. These kids give me hope for the future. #abphart #quiltedcollage #mllcwv #frostfest #thomaswv #daviswv

Have you ever had a love affair with a color? If you had asked me two years ago I would have told you I wasn’t a yellow person. It was important for balance but not my cup of tea in general. And then I discovered the rich, warm, buttery gold side of yellow. I am completely smitten. Can. Not. Get. Enough. It is like the stored up sunshine of a warm fall day. #inbloom #sunshineonacloudyday #gold #yellow #abphart #quiltedcollage #handmadepaper #paperart #freemotionsewing

Rime is the spectacularly beautiful hard ice accumulation from freezing fog. It is melancholic and moody. It is cold that has little to do with the number on the thermometer. It is the kind of cold that settles into your bones for a nice long visit. These are the days to stay close to the fire and make grand plans for the future. Hope you are all cozy and warm! #abphart #rime #freezingfog #tundraofmd #nobadweatheronlybadclothes @ Deep Creek Lake, MD

Y’all kept me super busy being Santa’s elf this year. Christmas commissions are always really special but this one really got me. Amy asked me to do a “portrait” for her sister Stacy.

Here in the northern hemisphere the sun has begun to set on the shortest day marking the beginning of the longest night.

With faithful progress,
The Great Sun has traveled,
From north to south again,
And on this day pauses.

So we also stand still,
With the whole Earth,
In quiet thankfulness,
To the Source of Blessing,
The Giver of All Light. - Eric Williams

Have faith friends, the sun will return tomorrow. Good Solstice to you! #abphart #sunrise #soulsticeblessings #quiltedcollage

Bloom - 25 Days of Minis - Day 14 https://www.etsy.com/…/56617…/bloom-25-days-of-minis-day-14… Bloom is an ORIGINAL piece of hand made paper art by Annie Simcoe. This piece is layers of my own hand made corn husk papers and the lines are "drawn" with my sewing machine using needle and thread using free motion quilting techniques.

I continue to be both amazed and in aw of your work. Truly amazing falls short of how exciting it is to see each new project. I look forward to the next offering.
