Just thinking about our books....

Hope all is well with you all! Summer is finally coming to MN tomorrow - we are supposed to hit our first 90 degree day (after having snow last Saturday!!)

So thought I might ask, any progress on the books? I know how busy we all get, but I'm getting ansty to get back to work on them and see the finished pressure though:)

Enjoy the sunshine!!

I need some pics from y'all

I teach jewelry making and an altered book class to kids 6-13 at the community college every summer & have been asked to prepare a display & do a demo. I'd like to make a slide show of the books we've been working on since I don't have but one altered book here. Most of the techniques I teach the kids are simplified A LOT because of their age & so don't really show the potential of the class. I would love to show some samples of what grow ups can do! If you are willing to let me show pics of your work please send me some. Thanks!!

You've got to check this out!!

Hello my AFFs!!!  Happy New Year!  You have got to check this out!

Following you all on your blogs and Facebook...hope you are all well.  8 inches of snow here and quilting time!  Altered books have to wait until I can open the doors and windows again for paint and glue smells...sure anxious to get these moving though!

Where does the time go???

Hello my dear AFFs!!  I just today (November 16) saw Denise's post from September!  The TWO art books that have made their way to my house are sitting front and center on my work table and have been since I received them!  I am so deliquent and feel much guilt over them but I seem to do other "have tos" before I get to these wonderful books.  I am feeling that the time is near for me to finally work on them.  I can hardly wait.  They are such beautiful pieces as they are and I am anxious to add to them.  I think part of my deliquency has been fear of messing them up.  I hope that once I begin with them the fear will depart and the creative process will take over.  So, Kathi and Jody, I still have your books and will keep you posted on their progress. 

Hope life is treating you all well...I do keep up occasionally on your blogs and such. 

Happy creating!  axel

summer is winding down

Hope you all had a great summer! lots going on with moving and grand kids, weddings family,  friends and what-not - we sure are a busy group! For me it has been super (a little too hot for my liking) but good none the less. As you know, I finished school in May - what a relief that has been:) And I started my new job in July. I'm enjoying being in the working world again, but it really does take away from my creative time, sadly.

I stopped in a scrapbook store yesterday while I was out & about and it really made me think about our books and how much I love working on them. I really didn't know if it was going to be something for me or not but YES, it's a great creative outlet. I have a few books in the works & now that summer is winding down I'm hoping to get back into them again - as well as looking forward to the next book in our group.

So do tell - how was your summer??
