And now for a non-book announcement

I went to see the movie The Help yesterday and it was phenomenal! Hilarious, teary, it had it all. A perfect amount of true history and an adaptation of reactions.

I dont know what Im more excited about...

starting the custom order for an album or the bookcloth order I received in the mail this morning, from

It always makes me happy to buy from Canadian companies when possible, especially since the papers I use with my books are from around the world (which makes me happy too). White, two greens (a mossy and a lime) and a red colour. I cant wait to use them, I have tons of ideas already!

Off to do my Monday cleaning of my studio then its time to make some books!

We are back in business!

Just back from a few days of relaxation and I am rejuvenated and back to binding some more books.

I sold this leather long stitch book, the first leather book I put up for sale, the other day and found out tonight that it was purchased to be used as a guest book at the couples wedding. How great is that, to be able to be a couples happy day? I was thrilled.

Also, I delivered the wedding scrapbook I made for my Aunt's granddaughters wedding the other day. My Aunt loved it, it was great. Nothing feels better than finding out your client is thrilled and you made someones day better.

Tomorrow is a day to unwind and unpack, get back to reality and then Sunday I am starting a custom ordered photo album/scrapbook. I can't wait for them to see it. After that, I have some leather hides to iron and some books to bind!

The stink of disappointment that was Saturday is now gone!

I hate to admit it but a little retail therapy that had nothing to do with books has me rejeuvenated. Some days H&M should stand for healing and magic.

Today I must tackle the mess after the tornado that was last week hit my studio. Ive been trying to condense the rolls that my orders of paper come in and roll as many sheets of paper and put them in what should be widdled down to 2 rolls. I have to re-organize my linen thread as I used the box I normally hold those in as a change box for the sale last week.

I am looking into displaying books at an artist driven store on consignment in Niagara Falls. Ive been really excited since they contacted me regarding the issue. I was thinking selling wholesale but I waited too long and now consignment is the way to go. I'm excited to go check out the store early next week!

On the agenda:
clean studio
begin custom album order
make more albums
look for daily planner book blocks
work on more leather covered journals

I'm tired just typing that out :)
