Tuesday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 9:59 am

Good morning readers.

In a few weeks TJBookarts will celebrate it’s second year of existence on the Net. This site has grown by leaps and bounds over the past two years and especially in the past year. Since last year we have grown from a few hundred vistors a month to over three thousand. Pretty cool huh?

March first is the kick off of our celebration month and for this year I’m planning to have weekly interviews by various bookbinders and artists as well as a few giveaways. So stick around.

Don’t forget to check out the new links page as I have been updating it every day.

As we creep closer to V-Day…

Alice Simpson graciously shares instructions for her version of a Victorian Puzzle Purse.

The Origami Resource Center has a bunch of hearts you can fold up for your sweetie as well as more puzzle purse instructions.

Here’s some info on the origins of puzzle purses and their uses as well as more instructions to make them. There’s a nice example of an antique Valentine puzzle purse.

I hope everyone has a great day.
