What is your favorite thing to do? When you are doing it, you loose track of time. I did today and for 3 hours I was happily working, beating abaca for future projects. Here is a picture of a hollander beater. The abaca is soaked for 2 days and then I tore it into small pieces to be beaten or macerated into small fibers. I then take those and have fun making different journals, cards, and lamps. But today I prepared 3 pounds of pulp that I may play with in the coming days. I'll show you some of the products I make. It was hard, back breaking work and it just made me happy.
