Dear mother nature…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 7:44 am

Stop being such a big tease. I thought you had sent fall here to stay for a while but my local news person told me last night that the temperatures would get up into the 90’s this weekend. How could you do this to me? Just when I had settled into fall cooking and was planning on pulling out the wool sweaters and boots. I was even contemplating getting the Martha Stewart Halloween issue at the newsstand. I’m so gullible.

Good morning readers.

It seems that crafters everywhere are gearing up for fall shows and holiday sales. Etsy and web shops are filling up in anticipation of holiday sales. Handcrafts are definately alive and well. For those of you that participate in fall shows, how are your sales going? Are buyers still being frugal with their money? Or are people starting to see the value in purchasing handmade items over items from the big box stores?  I’m gearing up for a show the first weekend in November so I’m curious what those of you who have already done some fall shows are experiencing.

Flickr bookbinding sets…Every so often I do a search on “bookbinding” on Flickr to see what comes up and as a way to get inspired to work on my own books. Of course my searches always come up with some awesome examples of hand bound books. Here are a few of my favorites from my most recent search.




I hope everyone has a great day.
