|I will be joining the signatures with a modified link stitch and adding decorative end papers.|
I was hoping to get a couple of books made yesterday, but was asked to take Little Miss 3 for the day and her sister, Miss 8, got off the bus here. Their Mom worked until just after 9 last evening, so I didn't get much done. But I sure had a good time.
Miss 8 made me a few ATCs while she was here. I am planning to put them in my three ring binder with others I have so they will be preserved. She is quite excited to join my collection.
She makes such lovely art for me.
On Saturday, I am watching Little Miss 7 and her new baby sister (I can't believe Zoë is 5 weeks old already) while Mom and Dad go out. I am so looking forward to it. My Little Miss 7 is an artist extraordinaire; I think I will give her some ATC blanks and see what she comes up with. I need to have some of her art in my collection, too.
I have a busy day planned today. The hubster is taking me to East Lansing to the bookstore so I can find a collection of hard crossword puzzles and then out to lunch. We will then stop in Mason at the Maple Street Mall to move him from the booth he has been occupying to a new one and will be swapping out some things and bringing them home.
I'm hoping to finish the Riis book this afternoon and start another. I ordered some Arches 140# watercolor paper from Dick Blick yesterday so I can make watercolor journals. I've had several requests regarding the use of "real" watercolor paper. I will make a book and then decide what I will have to charge. The Arches paper is a bit expensive, but will make a wonderful journal.
I'd best get this day started. I'm still in my jimjams and haven't had my second cup of coffee yet.
