How was your weekend? Did you have fun on the beach with sand between your toes? Spent time with friends and family had a good time in the sun? We had a great time in Ukiah went on a little wine tasting at a local winery, then off to a silent auction that supported fire victims, watched a pottery instructor threw a couple of pots, a pitcher and a beautiful fruit bowl.. I want to sign up for a pottery class now. I'm so all over the place... Maybe a more focus plan will be useful.. Have a restful night ! #bonnenuit --- Christopher Robin Verses by A. A. Milne is available on the shop (link in bio)
Nice #vintageartsupplies find at the thrift shop. Old mechanical pencil sharpener. Feels like cast iron. It was filled with 70 years of lead/graphite dust and still works way better than my modern one.
This big, beautiful journal is one of my favorites of all time. (And when I say big, I mean BIG! Measures 12-1/4" x 9-1/2" x 2-1/2"). I made the covers, the spine, the whole book from scratch. Almost everything I used inside is vintage, including blank charcoal paper, fabric bits, quilt blocks, book pages and pamphlet covers, vintage wrapping paper, and sewing pattern tissue. I absolutely love, love, love, 😍 😍😍 this journal! I also really love how the basket quilt blocks line up together between the signatures. Swoon! And I must add that the lovely Gina from @rebookery was a huge inspiration for me on this one. Thanks, Gina, for all that you do to inspire us journal makers! #vintagefabric#vintagegoodness#junkjournal#junkjournalforsale#junkjournallove#journal#journaladdict#imakeprettythings#vintagepaper#vintageartsupplies
Hello Thursday! Did you have a great Fourth of July celebration? Mine was full of fun and sun. I got to see all the old and wonderful peeps from New York and spent more time with some new and familiar faces from Berkeley. It was delightful especially the tiramisu and home baked peach pies at the end. Here are some new products for this weekend including/I'm thinking book stack decoration (last pic) what do you think 🤔? #happythursday
Monday. Thanks for your love and support. I got to make books and living my dream of a book binder. I can't be thankful enough. Thank you all so very much. I'm going to run an appreciative runaway once I reach 6,000 book lover friends who have chose to follow along my book loving and book binding journey. Thank you and happy Monday!!
#thursday what are on your list of things to get done? I bought a vintage watercolor tin yesterday and am excited ! ! It will be great prop for photos and I might even able to use some of it too.. Well hopefully.. Have you ever bought vintage watercolor? Does it work well for you? Is there any trick I need to know of? #bonjeudi 😘🌞💛🎈
Taking the world by storm. Not! All I wanted to do all day was just rest and nap and rest. The least productive Monday yet! Please send help!! Select books (swipe right) in the shop for your next sketchbooks/gifts to mobilize motivation my way. #bonmardi ! !monday was already over 😱😱
Shop update is now live! Twelve hours late but it still counts. Those of you who know me well sort of expected that's coming. I'm trying very hard to be more organized and better time managed then life gets in the way like my super good friend from school came over for brunch ( yay! I love her and brunch ! ) and the beautiful birthday party for my 7yo nephew with cousins and aunts and uncles just dancing away and having a good time in the sunny backyard with lemon trees lid up in the background. . Most of the pretty goodies are up in the shop now and a few more with be up tomorrow. Promise! Have a lovely lovely night and a beautiful Sunday! Oh and happy Pride weekend. #bonsamedi
One of the many books I will never get to post because it was sold before I even got the chance. I was on my way to a book sale when Beverly asked if I had any books in angel/magic topic. I said I didn't but would certainly look when I was at the book sale. I then came across this beautiful edition of Robinson Crusoe, how or why the angel on the cover had anything to do with the story I had no idea and neither did Beverly but she was happy with this find and purchased it as a gift which made it even more special. So it worked out. That said, if you do not find something you like or have some ideas, send me a message maybe we will be able to work things out. Also, I will soon offer embossed initials on custom sketchbooks too, what do you think? #someideas#somethoughts#happysunday
Saturday. What was on your list of things to get done? I had quite a few set out for me one of which was to take pics of the new books with a camera for better quality then the light wasn't right and the lens wasn't right so I lazied out and just used my phone. Turned out I really don't like the outcome so back to square one tomorrow. What are your thoughts about real camera pictures vs phone pictures? Will you always prefer real camera or it depends on the circumstances? I would love to know!! #thanksyall
