In my last post I said I was going to do a giveaway next right? So sorry guys. I just got caught up doing other things on the weekend but I promise to have that post up soon.
So aside from errands and such I finally cleared off my cutting table. Unfortunately instead of it being a place where book projects are created it became the dumping ground for mail, magazines, etc. Veens mentioned to me recently that I hadn’t posted any pictures of bookbinding projects and actually that’s because I’ve been pretty much taking a break from my bookbinding this year. What with the health issues I had earlier in the year and things I just needed a break.
But, I’m happy to say I’m gearing up for the studio tour I’m participating in during November so no more excuses. Plus, along with my Etsy shop I just opened up a shop on Artfire. I’m so excited. So, I cleared off my table and started working on shop stuff. Here is a picture of the art packs I put together with new and vintage ephemera. The bookbinding begins later this week.
Enough with the shop talk though guess where we went this weekend? To Borders. A two-story one that we just discovered. It’s a bit far from our home so we probably won’t go there often but it was nice although a bit too crowded for my tastes. We could barely find a place to sit.
I did walk out with a couple of books though. I got The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I know reactions to this one have been mixed but I still want to read it. Then I also found The House at Midnight by Lucie Whitehouse which sounds like it could be a good selection for the R.I.P. Challenge (plus it was a bargain buy) and Tethered by Amy MacKinnon (another bargain buy).
All in all, a great weekend. I hope yours was a good one too!
