I believe that if your ideas, thoughts, and words are worth having, they are worth preserving on paper in a beautiful book.
I love books: reading them , writing in them, and, for the past 12 years or so, making them.
I also love paper: the different feel of various papers, the assorted smells of papers, and of course, the look of paper. And then there's pens, pencils, paints, crayon, dyes........
I love to make books, not only with beautiful bought papers, but also, and especially, with paper I have decorated myself in a variety of ways.
I also enjoy other crafts: fabric craft, knitting, felting, beading - and I have a long list of 'love to try one day' crafts waiting back stage.
