new book

************************

sorry for blogging [or not blogging] in a disorderly fashion over the last few days. I've been engrossed in making another altered book, sketchbook type of thingy. I have absolutely adored making this and have deliberated for longer than usual as to whether to keep it to add more artwork to or put it on the shelves in my etsy shop. imagine if etsy was a shop in real life where you could go and browse all the goodies in person. How big would it be and how long would it take to look round? I don't think I'd ever get out.

There is a special kind of affection with which one holds a small book....

Kate - your book is beautiful - the best part is you had such a wonderful time putting it together - always hard to know whether or not to hang on to these things

It is splendiferous! I don't know if I would be able to part with it. Make another one, then decide!

Lynne- it's titchy (8cm x 7cm) - the metal thing on the front is an antique piece of jewellery that i've been saving for ages

kate said...

Love the stitching! How long did it take you to complete? I'd say hang on to it!

Jeane said...

Hello-
Beautiful work. You know, I noticed they were having altered notebooks on Inspire me thursdays

Wonder if you have anything to hand you could pot there? I know it's bedtime there. Anyway, just a thought.

Lovely little book, what a wonderful creation.

What a treasure! As Kari says, make another one and then decide.

This is neato!!
I want one. You know what'd SO neato about it? Maybe if a person had a charm necklace with lots of Nina knots all over it, she could put this journal on it, and have it with her everywhere! And just lift it up and do some journaling when the mood strikes!

Well, maybe it's too big for a necklace, but it is still neato.

Such a special book! I do wish Etsy was a brick and mortar shop. That way I could examine this up close!!
