Okay. Time to get back to blogging. Don't even ask where I've been, or what I've been doing. Couldn't tell you, just wasn't feeling it I guess. But time to jump back in. And just in time for Christmas projects. I love to make gifts for my family and friends but it makes blogging so hard! So there will probably be lots of tiny sneek peeks around here for a while. But rest assured I am taking lots of pictures and will have a big Christmas roundup at the end of the year.
Here's a bit of what I've been working on. Books made from recylced kid's books. I've been on a kick with these for a couple weeks. And last week I hit the book sale at the thrift store - a grocery bag full for $2. Should keep me busy for a while! Sydney constantly scolds me for taking books apart (I've taught her well I guess!) But I am careful to buy the grossest worst books they have, the ones that are practically falling apart already that no one else in their right mind would buy. So, I don't feel too bad about it.
I'm no pro at book binding but I enjoy faking my way through it. I recently ran out of PVA glue and tried to subsitute everything else I had with no success. So that's one thing I do know...glue matters. I think I offered to do a tutorial on this once, but realized I didn't know what I was talking about then. Still not sure if I do but I would be happy to give some guidelines to anyone that's interested. It doesn't have to be quite as technical as you might think.
