What A Find

Believe it or not, this post isn’t about a book find but about a tool. I’ve been looking for a long ruler at Michaels and Hobby Lobby, one long enough to use for when I have to cut bookboard. The bookboard I use comes in size of 26 x 38 inches. As most of the books I make are small, it was a pain to cut the boards into such small sizes.

So needless to say when my husband found a 58 inch ruler for me at Home Depot I jumped for joy! I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited about a Home Depot find. Ha. So I know this is not the most exciting of bookbinding updates but that’s what’s been happening at the Studio. Actually, now that I know I’ll be selling my journals at the E.A.S.T. Austin Studio tour I’m trying to come up with another journal style to add to my inventory. I’m thinking of a coptic bound book and something a bit larger, like maybe the size of a large moleskine notebook. Let me know what you’d like to see if you were at a art/craft fair as I need some ideas.

We had a very good weekend and spent time with friends, trying out a restaurant and drinks, hanging out at Borders and discovering a new favorite drink (if you haven’t tried the iced marble mocha go check it out!) and indulging in naps. Love this kind of weekend.

I did finish Intuition so I’ll have more to say on that soon but I really, really liked it. I can’t believe it but lately I just feel like reading one book at a time and not doing my usual 4-5 book juggling thing. Now I have to go find a new book to start tonight. What about you, start or finish any books this weekend?
