Happy New Year!

I have some interesting news to share. Before Christmas I went to the CDTA Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/RideCDTA/) and sent a message with photos of  Christmas (and non-Christmas) ornaments I’d made with recycled CDTA bus pass swiper cards.

A few days later, CDTA asked if they could post the photos on their facebook page. If you would like to see the photos click on the link above and page down until you see the photos. A mix of the crafts I made also is shown below for those who cannot view Facebook. You are welcome to pass this on to others.
If you are interested in learning some of the crafts I do, I teach classes in:
— recycling bus passes into art (flowers, roses, wreaths, bears, etc.)
— quilling to make cards and other decorative pieces
— recycling used manila file folders into angels, 3D dolls, and other art
— use newspaper, ads/flyers and roll them into tubes for making newspaper weaving flowers and other items
— recycling books (5 inches or smaller with 200-plus pages) into angels, cakes, etc.
— decorate metal spoons by adding paper, lace, and other items
— re-use the brown paper that comes in shipping boxes for deer, mermaids, dolphins and other crafts
— create paper beads for earrings, necklaces from any type of paper and sometimes use nail polish to change their color.

Sandra Hutchison, an adjunct instructor in the English Department since 2009, will share excerpts from her third novel, “Bardwell’s Folly: A Love Story” (Sheer Hubris Press, 2016), joining Nassau author Elaine Stock from 1 to 2:30 pm Saturday, Jan. 7 at the Sand Lake Town Library in Averill Park.

In a program called “Two Authors, One Theme,” Hutchison and Stock will demonstrate their two different approaches to the themes of leaving home and racial intolerance.

Bardwell’s Folly is about the impoverished daughter of a famous white Southern author whose insensitive racial joke goes viral and launches her on a journey into buried family secrets that might just lead her right back to where she started. Hutchison’s three novels all are set in New England, but for this one she digs into her own Southern roots and takes her heroine (and a new African American friend) on a road trip to Georgia and Florida.

Reviewing it for the St. Louis (MO) Public Library Book Challenge, Julie Failla Earhart says, “A mixture of romance, intrigue, family secrets, past lives, and a house that is as much a character as Tara was in Gone With the Wind create a spell-binding read that you won’t want to put down. I give Bardwell’s Folly 6 out of 5 stars.” A reviewer for the Rock Hill (SC) Herald says, “If one measure of a successful novel is its power to make readers uncomfortable while enchanting them with a compelling story, this book exceeds the mark.”

Nassau author Elaine Stock’s novel, “Always With You” (Elk Lake Publishing, 2016) is Christian fiction about a woman whose attraction for a young man enmeshes her in a dangerous white-supremacist group in the Adirondacks.

Reviewer Carrie Schmidt of Reading Is My Superpower says, “The aspect of Always With You that I perhaps found most captivating is the implication of how easily truth can become warped and how innocuous evil can appear. Elaine Stock has done a masterful job of revealing these layers bit by bit — highlighting, as I said, the ease with which twisted truth can become permanently damaging.”

The Sand Lake Town Library is located at 8428 Miller Hill Road behind Sand Lake Town Hall near the intersection of Rt. 66 and 43. Refreshments will be served and books will be available for purchase. The snow date is Jan. 8. For more information, call the library at 674-5050. You can learn more about Sandra Hutchison’s fiction at sheerhubris.com and Elaine Stock’s at elainestock.com.
