I didn’t quite end up having a slow down weekend after all. My friends and I braved the elements on Saturday and had a blast meeting up a movie (Notes on a Scandal which was very good) and a belated Christmas gift exchange. I got a subscription to Bookforum! Thank you Christine.
Sunday has been a glorious sunny day and I spent my morning on Rodeo Drive buying rubber stamps. Yes, another rubber stamp convention was in town and they were at the rodeo. Only in Texas right? Actually it was in the convention hall next to the rodeo but obviously this was the only way I’d ever go near the rodeo.
I found some nifty rubber stamps, charms, antique book pages and other trinkets for projects. I even met the founder of Altered Arts magazine. If you are into altered books I do recommend that publication. I have found it to have some interesting projects and there are always good, detailed instructions for the featured projects.
My favorite stamp from the show is this one.
Isn’t it great? I can just see myself now, guerilla bookworm leaving my mark around town. Love it.
