Tonight at 5 o’clock our time, Christine Hiester will be hosting a gluebook party. What’s a glubook party? Glad you asked!
Actually, I’m not really sure! This will be my first one. But I think it’s a collection of prompts and encouragement sent via Instagram…then people snap pictures of their work in progress. And a gluebook? It’s just another word for a collage. My mama used to make the most creative, lovely envelopes out of bits + scraps. Wish I had one for inspiration!
I think you can just search for #junegluebookparty on Instagram to find the posts. i joined Instagram yesterday with AP’s new phone. Kind of crazy what $30 will buy you at Safeway these days. Christine has written a short book about glubooking that she’ll send you when you subscribe to her newsletter. She’s also written A Year of Art Journaling. Highly recommended, already inspiring. The book made me think of Melissa Wiley’s coffee shop girls. It would be wonderful to meet together, explore a process or medium, then use it during the week, and return to share what we’d made.
See you tonight!
