It's a Box

I woke early this morning and instead of cleaning or starting into packing food for my trip I made a box.  It's for THEE BOOK.  I didn't have enough of the green marbled paper so I used up all my blue *laugh*.   I really need a bigger house so I can have room for a true guillotine cutter.  *sigh*  when we get rich off Rick's teaching job *snort*.

Ah well, here are pics of the box:

Celebration Time!

When you finish something big you should celebrate.  Finally, after 3 years and quite a number of mishaps that labeled this project cursed, I finished.  To celebrate I want to eat cheese cake or chocolate mouse.  I want to watch a fun movie and eat popcorn and red vines.  I want to go on vacation. I want to do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight.   Sorry, song cue.

I'm not sure what life will be like without this project hanging over me.  I do have 2 other copies that need to be bound.  One sewn and one not even trimmed down yet, but for now I'm taking a break from book making.

So, with out further ado . . . the bound book for an awesome author.



Bonus bookmarks I tatted.

Bound to Stay That Way


The Lighthouse books are bound.  It is 2 and a half inches thick, but looking good.  I'm less freaked out now.  All that's left is sewing the end bands, putting in the end papers, and casing it in.  With a little determination I can have it done in 3 or 4 days.

Here's hoping I get the clothing sew in 1.5 weeks.  *LAUGH*  Pictures to follow when I have the time and can find the camera.
