told ya' i made books...

i know you didn't really believe me. but there are finally a few posted in my shop...
and they're quite lovely if i don't say so myself. perfect for all you artsy types who like to keep your ideas and drawings in something pretty. did i tell you the insides are made with fabriano mediovalis paper...so you could even paint in there?
i love books. yep, i make 'em and keep my favorites for myself, but i also have my own collection of purchased favorites. I love to start writing in each one when it's all crisp and new and watch it get worn and beat up as i carry it with me all over the place...penning my crazy ideas and thoughts and lists inside of them. There is something about finishing every page in a journal or album that is quite special. My own little curated exhibit of ideas. {because, you see, i usually write it down first all scratchy and messy on some stray piece of paper...then only the little gems make there way in to the pretty album.}

...and now, I am about to lose all credibility when I tell you that I am going to see the gymnastics movie "Stick It" tonight with some girlfriends. and i'm totally excited about it. have a good night...i'll let you know all about the movie tomorrow!

You're not alone.. I want to see Stick It too. I'm trying to drag my hubby to go with (not very successful in it so far.) :)
