Kristyne Czepuryk Collage

Kristyne Czepuryk My motto for decades now has been, “It’s about the making, not about the having.” I create things for the experience, not for the end product. Of course I keep some things I make because I like them or because the are useful. But the process of creating a thing is always more important to me than the thing itself.

When I think of Kristyne’s work, I think of attention to detail, even a snap is covered with a mini hexie so it’s beautiful.  I also adore her photography and the very soft colors she uses.

Her book had me at ‘S is for Stitch’.. it’s the alphabet + lots more!  I highly recommend it.
