... that I haven't been goofing off. Unless, like my husband, you don't see the "work factor" involved in sewing together two-sided pages, adding brads and glitter, gluing feathers and finally stringing sequins, dice and beads from 25 early bird mouths for chunky/fat book participation. But I bet you do. And it was on my "to do" list...right after 'grocery shop' and 'schedule yearly doctor checkups for the kids' (btw anything written on a "to do" list is most definitely a job/work that must be completed. ) This is all in prep for February's much anticipated art retreat.
If you don't know what a chunky/fat book is (like I didn't two years ago), it's a collaborative project that brings together a little bit of each participating artist into a 4" x 4" *typical* book spiral bound by the organizer of the event. Pages include lots of embellishments and unique touches so no two finished books are exactly alike.
