I'm hungry

Thinking back on my BL (no T) I had the other night with JoAnn Kelly Catsos at Crown Candy Kitchen. This was the last night of another fantastic four day workshop here in St. Louis that I hosted for JoAnn. We had 14 students take the classes and over 40 baskets and woven pieces were made. I promise to post more pictures from the workshop soon.

Take a look quick

This doesn't happen often, my craft/basket room is clean! When I host classes at my house this is where we have lunch and a table full of stamping and paper supplies is not a very functional lunch room. Now let's see how long it lasts...

Book Binding

I took another class at Perennial last night, this time a leather bound book. It was my first time doing any book binding and it was really fun and surprisingly easier than expected. Like all Perennial classes we used all reclaimed/recycled materials. The leather was from old jackets, pants or scraps and the pages was letterhead that was headed to the landfill.

I just need to figure out how I want to fashion a closure for my book. The leather I had left over from my scrap wasn't long enough to make a simple tie closure, so I wanted to take some time and look at some examples of different methods before I just threw something on there. I will post a follow up picture when I get it added.

Thanks Perennial for another fun class!

Stampin' Some Halloween Cards

Earliest I ever gotten my Halloween cards finished. Now I just need to write a message inside and get them mailed. I've got weeks, right?

Being a perfectionist and a procrastinator can be a really bad combination.
