so now the dust has settled somewhat, i have got back to the card books
cutting pages for the papers, folding them, clamping them
and even making them....
above and below are samples of the pages i made with the paper doily karen b. of todolwen sent me along with her cards for the swap
and button chains!
i need 28 of these (i think!) and have just completed the tenth one - they are a fun and relaxing thing to work on in the evenings when i am feeling tired - simple yet still creative, and each time i finish one, i am sure it's my favourite
beads, buttons, charms - any kind of bauble really - they all look so nice together and when they're tied on the spines they'll add a sense of whimsy to the books
i found some panel fabric at the shop i thought would be perfect for part of the covers but now i have it at home i think it might be too big.... so it seems you're each going to receive your book in a little bag.... it's amazing to me how quickly a new idea can form once you let go of an old one....
in other news - i have started a new blog...
i'll still post here, as i have for many years
so many times though i thought of things i wanted to post about but they just didn't seem right for here - this space is for my creative endeavours
i wanted something for my thought-full ones
i set it up a while back and then pondered the whole idea
realistic-ally and logistic-ally
and finally decided i can manage both - i think!
anyway, it's called "yesterday's grace"
and my thinking is, it will be a place where i ponder things i think about
about how we can live in the world today; a world that reflects the best of the way things used to be along with the hopes of how they could be
i hope you'll stop by...
