We spent most of the day at the East Austin Studio tour and had a great time. I lost track of how many artists’ studios we saw but one that stood out in my mind was that of a bookbinder. All of her books were leather bound and with some great textured paper. I saved her card somewhere as I may have to treat myself to a nice journal.
As we were driving back home my husband and I dreamt about one day having a real studio. Right now one of our bedrooms is dedicated as our project room but it’d be nice to have more room and of course be able to decorate. Well, hopefully one day.
Anyway, I’m going to take a little bloggy break because I need to work a bit on adding stuff to my shop and I’m off to Dallas to visit my mom and friends. I’m hoping to stay away from Paper Source but I can’t promise. I have heard that Dallas has a new independent bookstore so I’ll have to check that out.
I am taking a few books with me which include: Who by Fire which I’m about half way through and am enjoying it. I’m racing through Anatomy of a Boyfriend, which I’m finding to be such a good depiction of all the angst of first love. And, I’ve got a wonderful mystery going on, The Blackstone Key, which is one of my books for the First in a Series challenge.
I hope everyone has a great week ahead and if you celebrate Thanksgiving enjoy it! I’ll be back, hopefully with lots of reviews, by next weekend.
