Katie turned 85 and we celebrated!

About the Book
Katie is the mother of 12 children, and even more grandchildren and great grandchildren. This amazing woman is my mom. She lived though a gunshot in the head at the age of 13. We tease her that this is where she might have said "Honey, I have a head ache tonight". Photographed by our cousin and her son-in-law, it shows the celebration on a perfect fall day.
I am a working artist who taught photography, web design for artists and artist book classes full time at Northern Kentucky University and Metro State University for 41 years. I began making blurb books the first day I got a notice that blurb existed. Since then I have made quite a few for myself, gotten friends and family to make books, and used blurb when I taught my courses in artist bookmaking and photography and whenever I taught study abroad classes. Blurb democratized bookmaking for the rest of us and for that I am grateful. Thank you Eileen.
