Our son Matthew, a filmmaker

Several winters ago, when we lived in Bellingham, Washington, our son Matthew (who actually just graduated from college, majoring in filmmaking) came up to visit us for four days and spent the entire time filming us working on our art. We were so excited and loved spending this wonderful time with him, doing such a special project. Our older son, Michael also did the beautiful music for Matthew's documentary about our art, which is called "Married to Art". Michael's music is wonderful! So, it was a real family project and we were so excited to work with our sons in this way. (Descriptions of pictures above: 1. (left) Matthew filming the wonderful little chairs that the children made in the class we taught in Bellingham at a birthday party. (We actually have taught many, many art classes for children!) 2. Here I am passing out more materials for the children to use. 3. More materials...... 4. My husband Mike working on his art and Matthew in the background filming our Treehouse. All of the following pictures are of Matthew filming our Treehouse. It was so fun to see him filming our wonderful, magical house! If anyone is interested in purchasing copies of our DVD "Married to Art", let us know. We would be so excited to send you a copy. It is really wonderful! It is $15 and $2 for shipping. Take care and I hope you will be able to do something fun with your children, too!! Debbie (www.artmajeur.com/debbieschramer)

Thank you for visiting, and for the so nice and friendly comments about "La double vie de veronique".
I really like the idea of sharing things that I like with others - in my case, yes, is the literature and illustration' universe, mostly the so called "for children". The blog is a perfect medium to do so. I'm very glad it speaks to you.
Maybe you don't understand portuguese language... I would like so, for sometimes the full message of each post is coming through the combination of image and text.

I'll be visiting your blog :)

Your fairy furniture is soooooo beautiful. I have always been fascinated with tiny furniture and fairies. This is the first time that I have seen furniture made especially for fairies. Beautiful work!!!!
