We had such a great weekend filled with a lot of laughter and happiness. To celebrate our anniversary we went out for a yummy seafood lunch and then we spent the afternoon at the Continental Gin Open Studios event. We saw all kinds of art and dreamt about one day having our own studio (not just a part of the living room). My husband can do his calligraphy over on his side and I can do my bookbinding on mine. I think that would be perfect.
I also went to the Craft Guild’s Art Show Sale and wanted one of everything. Speaking of the Craft Guild, I’m very excited because this week I start a bookbinding course. Yay. More on that later.
Oh and I did make it out the Bookworm Bash book sale and sadly my Bookgirl credibility is going to be shot. I bought two books. I just didn’t find many books that I couldn’t live without. I did get The Apothecary Rose by Candace M. Robb and The Northbury Papers by Joanne Dobson.
Perhaps I didn’t buy more because I realize my stacks of unread books are overwhelming. I need to do a bit of book culling soon. In the meantime, even though I had said no new challenges until the new year, I am contemplating the From The Stacks Challenge. It would definitely help with those stacks. I’m going to think about it some more but I’ll keep you posted.
