First off, I would like to say hello to all the wonderful WOYWW ladies who have stopped by to check in on me! I have truly loved visiting each one of you ( that I make it to ) every week and I am also appreciating the friends I am making along the way!
So first, my peek at my desk, which I had to actually clean off a tad ...it was beginning to over power me and I couldn't find things! So I still have sticky notes up, and drawers that never seem to close...the usual stuff, lol Oh and my AB book which is 61 years old, I know cause there was an inscription on the inside cover of to whom it was given and the date!
Today my desk is all about my Altered Book that I am doing through Elisabeth's Blog called Altered Book Lover. If you look up at the top bar on my blog you can see the tab marked altered book syllabus and can check out how she has laid out the class. She goes slowly and gives detailed explanations and she is wonderful about answering any questions you might have. And if any of you ladies are taking her FREE class, then please let me know in the comment section as I really would love to visit, see your progress and your thoughts as you work your way through the steps!
This week we are on lesson 3:
I was able to skip the first step and went straight to prepping the inside end pages and the creating the start for my book
Then creating the niche....yikes....I wanted a deep wide niche and that meant a lot of cutting but I made it through, quite proud of it actually! lol Although my finger is still red from the pressure of my Fiskars finger tip knife. Of course I didn't have to do it all in one sitting, but I am so enthralled with making this book. It really is consuming me!
If anyone wants to come back tomorrow I will be going more in depth to some of the techniques I used and hopefully a better picture of the niche, I realize that most of you are doing some serious
snooping blog hopping and don't want long posts to go through!
