Me again…

Filed under: What Was I Thinking — jackie @ 2:14 pm

In the process of cleaning off my work space to finish my challenge book I excavated this big honkin book block. (Please ignore the big mess that is my work space in the background.)

Big honkin book

This baby is 11″ tall by 8.75″ wide and almost 2.75″ thick. What I was thinking when I started this book I’ll never know. I must of been on some “super size me” kick. *

On the bright side, the paper is a nice heavy cardstock with a felt appearance. They call it something else but for the life of me I can’t remember what.

I’m thinking of finishing it with a black leather spine and decorative paper covers or possibly a leather spine and wood cover with some kind of latch. Any suggestions? Anybody need a big thick journal? I’d be happy to finish it to your specs.

Ok…I’m off to finish the big dig out.

* (For the folks from other countries, this is a reference to any fast food restaurant in America. They always ask you if you want to super size your meal.)

The time for my demo at Jerry’s Artarama today is NOT 11-2 as I first reported. It’s actually 1-4pm today. I normally demo on Sat. and got the time confused. They don’t even open until noon on Sundays. Sorry about that. :(

If you’re in the area, please stop by and say “hiâ€?. I’m bringing a few little gifts to give out to those who do as well as Lotus Star Book instruction sheets. Jerry’s also gives a discount on bookbinding supplies and those fancy papers while I’m there.

Hope to see a few folks there on this windy rainy Sunday.

My eyes were bigger than my stomach…

Ok…I’m realizing that 10 a day is a bit of an insane a lofty goal. Considering all the other stuff I have to do on a daily basis. So, I’m changing my plan from 10 a day to 10 a week.  That’s much more doable and I might even have some hair left at the end of the month.

This week’s 10 is coming along fine. The little books are all sewn together and should have thier cases on by this evening.

Stay tuned…
