was watching a little of My Fair Lady on You Tube and lovin' that kind of talk
so i thought i would start this post with it
makes me 'appy, it does
this little star makes me 'appy too
last year, when i made these for some of you - that made me 'appy too
and got me to thinking
i'd like to do something again
something to do with books and binding
so 'ere it is...
i got a notion about making a christmas book
and thought i would call out to you
to send me a card, if you would be so kind
a christmas card
and then i could incorporate all i receive into signatures and make myself a christmas book
it would be stunning
christmas cards from you to me, mixed up with all sorts of other papers and plasters and tissue collage
wouldn't i be a lucky duck?
and it could have knots and laces and button chains
and then it seemed selfish.... all that wonderfullness - and only for me?
so 'ere's wot....
i'm not sure how many books I could make before i go mental
but i'm betting it's more than you think
so i am wondering if there are some of you willing to send me 6 christmas cards
i could mix them up and put some in books for everyone
i won't get them done before christmas 'cause i've lots going on already
but january is free and clear and by march they would be in the mail
so you would have them well in time for next christmas
the cards can be handmade or storebought but keep in mind they have to go in a book so need to be "flat"
as i have no idea of what response this could get i'll just ask you to comment with a "yes" if you're interested
and in a week i'll see how many there are and figure it out from there
maybe draw names or something, we'll see...
(the books will be small so don't fret over how many there might be - just please put your name in if you're interested - honest, i'm not crazy, and think how good i'll be at book-binding if i have lots to make!)
so there you 'ave it...
