A New Style of Journal
at least for meThis journal has an open spine with ribbon as part of the spine construction. I put drawing paper in it instead of my usual watercolor paper.
We have a couple more bookbinding workshops to go in the next three weeks, and we are already thinking about some fun, new projects to teach next year.
Right now I am a little concerned about my very sloooow progress getting my worktables cleared off and things put away. This happens to me every year at this time. I have come in from classes all summer and dumped my things on the tables. Then I repack for the next day and never really take care of the stacks of things piling up. Now I can't just put it away - I have to re-think and rearrange, and evaluate what I taught and how I could do it differently next year - what I can add - what I can subtract. What I can leave stacked on my tables!
Okay - I'm giving myself 15 minutes and those tables better be clear!
