Adventures in Bookbinding

I'm in a book! Let me rephrase - my work is in a book! Jeannine Stein author of Rebound and the newly published Adventures in Bookbinding contacted me a while back about participating in her new book. So I made 2 polymer clay book covers that she then bound into BEAUTIFUL diaries. They look amazing! The book is available through Boarders, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

I did a show this past weekend and had her book as well as the 2 handmade ones on display and I got such positive feedback about them that I think I will have to make some more to have at my next shows. First I will have to learn how to do the binding - but that's OK because I have Jeannine's book!

If you click on the preview of the book you can see one of mine on page 6. It is the green cover with the pink cherry blossoms. The full write up on my books is on page 83. Hooray!

New Camera

My old camera finally bit the dust a few weeks ago. I decided that I didn't want to put off buying a new one too long with my newest addition growing and changing everyday. I also wanted to be able to take better pictures of my work without having to spend forever on photoshop trying to make the picture actually look like the real thing. I got a pretty nice Cannon and I am now trying to figure out how to make use of the SUPER COOL settings that it has! The 2 bottom pictures were taken using the "poster" setting. I had some fun taking pictures of the kids today. I used up the whole memory card in about 20 minutes - note to self: 14 mega pixel camera needs a bigger memory card. So fun!
