The final push and tornados…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 4:48 pm

Hey there readers…

I just wanted to stop in and let you know that I’m three fourths the way through finals with one more on Thursday then I’m free for a few weeks before the summer session starts.

I spent the weekend working on the “big honkin book and box” for my Visual Foundations class. I don’t have pictures yet. I finished it up late Sunday evening and delivered it early Monday morning so I didn’t have time to set up for photos. I get it back tommorrow so I’ll get some photos then to share with you all.

I also wanted to thank those that wrote asking if I was affected by the recent tornados. Thankfully we weren’t affected by them her in Virginia Beach but they were only about 25 miles away. Way too close for comfort. It’s a very rare occurance in this area. We do get a warning once in a while but this is the first time that I know of that they have hit in such a big way here.

I received The Bookbinding Guy Video Workshop in the mail yesterday and am hoping to have a review for you this weekend. I’m looking forward to viewing it.

In the middle of the finals melay I had a guestbook to bind for a client and several custom Chameleons to make. I’ve been a busy girl.

Can anyone tell me why a good percentage of brides to be want their guestbook covers in black? And they always want black even if their colors are blue or pink or something else. Yes, it can look elegant but black silk/linen covers pick up every spec of dust within ten feet. With so many beautiful colors available it always makes me wonder.

I hope everyone has a great evening.

  1. That is a good question- I made my guest book/album in white with lovely sage green pages. Most of the requests I have received have been for black also…
