Busy days and busy nights…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 11:01 am

Good morning readers.

It’s been a week of history tests, painting swatches and scratin’ tiny lines into clayboard. I’ve started dreaming about working on my art projects and I wake up going over history facts in my head.

For some reason, known only to the universe, both my first history exams for the semester fell on the exact same day back to back. Phew! Would you like to know anything about Gothic and Renaissance art or perhaps Portugal, Spain, England, France,or Russia during the 15th and 16th centuries?

It’s overcast and rainy here in the burbs. It’s a good day to stay in and work on that history essay or art projects that are due on Monday or clean the house in preparation for a little Valentine playday that I’m hosting next Friday but…since I haven’t seen my friend Holly in several weeks so I’m going out to meetup with her for coffee and some catching up. 

Of note…

Get thee to Rhonda’s of My Handbound Books blog and sign up for her cool Valentine book giveaway.

I’m adding sites to the bookbinding tutorial links page as I go through the archives or come across them on the web.

I’d like to thank everyone who has bought books from Amazon through the links on this site. For each of my links that you click and buy a book or DVD they give me a small credit which I can apply towards books of my own. It def. helps support this site by saving me money on the books I would normally buy to feed my book addiction habit. I’m in the process of saving up for this book right now. :)

Also, don’t forget it’s Challenge Friday. Head on over to the Flickr site and check out the new books that have been posted. I’ll be posting next weeks challenge a little later today.

Edited to add that…the new challenge has been posted and I am still working on my winter book but should have it done this weekend.

I hope everyone has a great day!

  1. Go ahead and buy Archaeology… they might raise the friggin’ price (again). It’s superb.

  2. I’m about half way there. Hopefully they won’t raise the price in the next month or so.
