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.

Do you do custom albums? I am looking to carry an album line similar to this style for my photography portrait clients. I would love to have a layered front option with the family's initial and a few patterns to choose from for the cover, and an option for deckled art paper inside. Would you be interested?
