Merry Christmas

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St Nicholas soon will be here!

Merry Christmas to all my blog readers. In spite of the long absences from my blog, I have been continuing to make books and have been very busy during the past few weeks with local craft markets and working on orders. In January, I hope to start working on more projects that I want to work on, rather than just orders from other people. That should give me more interesting work to share here on my blog.

I had a chance to make a Christmas book for my mother this year; she needed a guestbook for an event she was hosting. It is a hardcover book bound using a traditional Japanese stab binding. Some of my own marbled paper is used on the covers with a little Christmas tree image inset on the front.

Happy Holidays to everyone and best wishes for a fabulous year in 2011.

Local Events - Dec 4 & 5

If you are in my area (which is Halifax, Nova Scotia), you should know about these events! MyHandboundBooks will be present at both, this weekend. Come by and visit. The two events are within spitting distance of each other (sorta), so you can easily do both!
