I made some books...

That's pretty much what I did tonight - finish off some books for an order tomorrow. Got some new Chiyogami papers, I love the combo of blue floral paper and brown ribbon in the one above. Also, I made a book with some of the paper I was raving about recently...
I like the way it's come out. It seems crazy, but I've made hundreds of books, and haven't taken many photos. I am thinking of either starting a website, or opening an etsy shop to sell my books - and realized that I have hardly any photos of them! So, I have resolved to take many more photos of all that I make.

In other news, I am mesmerized by the "In my life" group on flickr. The deal is that you take some photos, and then post four that best represent your day. I watched all the photos as a slideshow, and it was wonderful to see all that happened in people's days...dogs, children, food, home...just lovely.

Oh, and following on from yesterday's post - Tom and Katie are doing OK. Well, except that Katie has converted to Scientology, and her Catholic parents are refusing to attend her wedding! Don't even get me started on Vince and Jen...

The brown and blue works very well together. (Has anyone seen Suri yet?)

Love those papers! I think a website or Etsy shop would be great!
Yeah, where's Suri?

Not sure about Suri, maybe she doesn't exist! When I heard that Katie was pregnant, I thought the whole thing seemed like a publicity stunt! The magazine I read said that Tom and Katie were arguing about how she should make her "debut"...we shall see...

the books are so beautiful - I think you should open a shop! I *just* opened my Etsy shop and I've already made 2 sales. Okay, they were to people I already knew online, but still. :)
