I'm Nancy and I live in a very rural area of Upstate New York. I love books of all kinds - to read, to collect, to enjoy and mostly to make. I learned to make case-bound books about 30 years ago and have been doing so off and on ever since. About six years ago I was persuaded to make some of my books for sale and have been selling them at our local Arts Center ever since.
About five years ago I decided to try making my own marbled paper for my books and fell in love with the process. As a friend of mine said, "It's finger painting for adults." Once I had piles of paper, I had to find more uses for it than what I could use for books. I started making the paper into cards and boxes All of these items can be found here on Etsy in my shop, Losing Her Marbles.
You can see how I design and make my books and marbled papers on my blog at www.nancylangford.com…
