Proof...

... 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.


There they are. whew. All 25 pages shipped off yesterday to our kind organizer down in Florida. I can't wait to get my hands on the finished project. Okay back to more work (really...it's on the list.)

Hi June! That sounds so exciting!!! And wow! 25 that was a LOT of work. They look awesome, when are you getting the finished book back? I bet you can't wait to see the finished version!
To put this on a to-do-list, I used to do too, right now I kind of get stuck in everyday organisation...have to get more art in my every day again....thanks for the reminder with the 'to-do-list'!
Smiles, Anke ;)
