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.)

  3. Hey Jackie,

    wow, this gives the word ‘volume’ a very special meaning … ! :-) Is it a blank book or does it have content ?
