Just a few things…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 9:24 am

The first thing is that I do not know what happened to that last post. It seems to have diappeared off into the ether somewhere. I’m hoping it’s not the server as we had another outage on Sunday. Ack!

Good morning readers.The summer seems to be flying by pretty fast here in the burbs. I’ve been busy putting up bread and butter pickles, baking bread, preparing for upcoming classes, making books and Chameleons to send off to far away places, watching the chatter over on the forum and dreaming of an uncluttered studio.

A few things…

If you teach kids or have little ones of your own, here is a site that has lots of info and projects for making books with kids.

I’ve been adding and deleting blog addresses on my Google Reader site for alot of folks that have been jumping ship on their old blogs and starting up new ones. Billie of the Billie’s Craftroom blog is one such blogger. She’s got some nice little tutorials on her new blog. One is how to make leather look paper with the Ranger inks. It’s def. worth a look and a try.

If anyone is interested…I have a box full of old polaroid cameras that I’d like to find new homes for. They are the kind that take the peel apart film used in Polaroid transfers and emulsion lifts. I have some of the older ones that take special batteries that you have to order but one battery lasts forever. Shoot me an email if you’d like more info.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Recent site outage…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 7:32 am
Hey all, 

If you tried to get on the site last night (6/9/08) and couldn’t, the reason was due to a faulty bandwidth counter on the server.

We’ve had this issue before. The counter is supposed to reset itself on the first of each month but it doesn’t.

Luckily the server owner is a friend of mine and I can get these issues resolved pretty quickly.

If you sent me any email last night please resend it. I’m not going anywhere so no worries about that.

My studio is turned upside down…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 7:36 am

Good morning readers.

I’m in the process of mucking out the studio this week…amoung other things. It’s a mess and I was told I couldn’t migrate back out to the dining room with my book making stuff anymore. :)

Check out the new site feature…I’ll be sending out a bimonthly newsletter starting in June. It’ll be full of bookbinding goodness and possibly a free tutorial or two. If you’re interested in receiving it, click the link on the menu at the left and signup.

I am planning on participating in a small local craft show on July 5. I’ll be spending the next few weeks getting some books and chameleons made. I’m on a mission to try to use up alot of materials that I already have on hand. This week will be spent seeing what I have and how I can use it without buying more. I have lots of paper and fabric that can be used as cover material. The only thing I think I might need is some inside paper but I’ll know better by the end of next week. Wish me luck.

If you haven’t been to the forum lately check it out. We’ve got alot of new members and some good discussions going on.

I hope everyone has a great day.

PS…you can flip your own text here.
