Where have I been???

Sheesh, suddenly it's been 22 days since my last post. I haven't been anywhere. I have no excuses. So. What's been happening, anyway?

First of all, I want to show you this really fabulous book - made by another Canadian bookbinder, Jen, who is Red Pumpkin Studio, and she is based in Regina:


Isn't that cool? It's a very unique style and that's some of my marbled paper on the covers! So this is the first time that I've seen a book made by someone else using my marbled paper and this book is just so cool, I think she did a fantastic job of combining her style with this particular paper.


Also I wanted to mention that a couple weeks ago, I won a book from Subu! So that was exciting. She is having a "Wordsmith Wednesday" contest on her blog every week. Readers can suggest words or phrases that might be suitable for her to use on the covers of her notebooks. I had suggested "Not Yours", hehe! If she picks your suggestion, then she'll make a book with your suggested phrase on the cover and send it to you! Simple as that. She accepts suggestions all week, so you can go over there now and make a suggestion before the next winner is picked on Wednesday!

Jen's book is fabulous - really clever use of your paper (which is in itself beautiful of course). So nice to win that book, too.

Oh wow....this book is stunning. The spine is amazing as is your marbled papers. The ripples look so real.
