Tuesday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 7:59 am

Good morning readers.

I was away this past weekend visiting my parents for the Mother’s Day weekend. While I was there I had the great surprise of seeing all my sisters as they came in to celebrate my 50th birthday.

That’s me on the left in the bright green shirt. I am on the oldest of the four of us. Sydney is to my right, then my Mom, Catherine. Alice, the second oldest, is to the right of Mom and Frances is next. Sydney and Frances are twins. Frances is expecting her 11th child this fall. (I don’t think I’d look that good with 11 kids. :) )

Unfortunately my Dad was unable to be in the photo as he had suffered a mild heart attack and was in the hospital. He’s doing fine but was waiting to see the cardiologist on Monday. 

This weekend the birthday festivities continue with a trip up to Washington DC. I’ll be checking out a few museums as well as a few paper and book stores.

Of note…

If you bought, or are thinking of buying, the Bookbinding Guy video you’ll want to go ahead and make yourself a small book press.

Also, if you’re really industrious you could surf on over to Rhonda’s site and make some paste paper to use for your covers. It’s fun and really easy to do and looks great on your books.

I’ll be updating the custom Chameleon page with new scans of available lining and accent colors later this morning.

I also have a new non leather Chameleon cover option that will be available soon.

If you haven’t already, check out the Chameleon Flickr page for some great photos showing Chameleons in use.

I hope everyone has a great day.

  2. Happy Birthday Jackie, how lovely to have all your sisters there with your Mom for Mother’s Day and your birthday. I do hope your father is getting better. My birthday this week too, tomorrow actually and my celebrations started on Mother’s Day and will continue over the weekend. I love the extended birthdays though they seem to come around very frequently. All the best, Carol

  4. TJ, many happy returns! And by the way, I would’ve guessed you’d be in your early 40s at the most…
