Tramp Art, like quilting, relies on using salvaged materials to create textures and patterns then piecing them together to make beautiful yet utilitarian
objects. While relatively unknown, Tramp Art was a wide-spread form of Folk Art that flourished in America between the 1870's – 1940's.

The Dog Days of Summer...

A small but wonderful package arrived yesterday...
the wood I had ordered two weeks ago!
Now I can finish up the 15 pieces I have waiting 
for me on my worktable.

As you will see, I also have enough
vintage boxes, table bases and other items that
I can make a few dozen more pieces.
I actually spent yesterday drawing out patterns
for some new pieces. A good part of the day
was taken up printing out the patterns for 40 pieces.

Of course, I will keep working
till the supplies run out!


I guess Christmas really does come in July!
The Krampus Hot Air Balloon is soaring off to a new home!

Of course he is taking Santa, a Christmas Tree
and some presents with him.


In an effort to keep moving forward
and continuing to create my pieces I would like
to invite you to contribute any amount
to my Go Fund Me campaign. Any contribution
would be gratefully accepted. You can
