Wednesday updates

I am still not feeling up to snuff, but better. Madi and I lay around a lot. There is just something about having a cold during hot weather, it doesn't feel right. It is supposed to be cold and rainy so you can drink chicken soup and get better. You know the whole bathrobe wrapped up to your neck, thermometer hanging out of the side of your mouth, droopy eyes, slippers and blankies all over you.
Not this cold, not this time.
So no Wednesday Wonders again :-(

I wanted to remind you I have a piece I am giving away on the Mary's Graces Blog

The giveaway is over on Friday 08/18/11,  you might want to go check it out if your are interested.

Since I had to stay home this weekend and not go play at Jodi's house, I brought out the paper and started to play.
I have always wanted to learn Coptic book binding, I did.
I did OK too.
My friend Meredith makes wonderful books, Coptic binding is one of her specialties. I have always admired them, it is a neat technique and she does a great job.
You can see her book and paper art gallery here
She also teaches in the Seattle area and will teach a class for it if you get enough people together.

I will take a picture of my little book and load it up here later.

I went to google and did a search for Coptic bookbinding and up pops,

This one is for Coptic bookbinding with hard covers. There are other wonderful videos under the same search for doing different covers, images, and a plethora of info to keep you or me busy for days ;-D

I am going to do this again.

I have also listed tons(OK, lots) of stuff in both of my stores.

Also I don't know if you know about this web page and group, but if you are an Etsy seller of handmade or vintage, this might be a wonderful source for you.
It is called Etsy Lush
They also have a team on Etsy, you can check it out here.
It is totally run by volunteers, donating what I am sure is massive hours of time, to promote sellers on Etsy
Thank you guys!!
They also started doing individual pages for the people who get their things listed.
Here is my page
It also helps me keep track of what I have submitted already ;-D
That kind of tool always helps me. It is also nice to be able to share it too.
Thank you guys, again.

I hope you have a great day.
Be well and it is almost Friday ;-D
