Books in Progress

While I've been escaping to quilt shows, what I've been escaping from is this:


Cutting and gluing over 20 sets of covers for new travel journals...
...and this:


Cutting and folding pages for same travel journals...
...and some of this:


Cutting, scoring, folding, and adhering loads of map envelopes.

Why am I so busy? I've signed up to do my very first craft show this fall! I've always been reluctant to do this, because I have a day job, a family, and loads of other excuses! Sometimes it's hard to make enough stock to fill my Etsy shops, let alone a table at a show. But this year I decided to take the plunge with a local community centre show. So now I'm trying to accumulate enough product and plan my display--I may be calling on you for help and advice as I go along!

  5. Oh I love paper products! And you are making journals with maps. What a cool look....there is so much work to do for a show, but you will feel so good about having accomplished it in the end.

    Off to see more of what you do.
    Ciao Bella!
