Why not....

...start today! I procrastinate and think and think and procrastinate. That is not going to get me anywhere. I set this blog up a long time ago and didn't follow up; I once knew how to do it all and today I forget. So now I am jumping in and whatever happens happens.
These days, as I clean the studio, I am thinking of throwing everything out and starting all over. But then again I procrastinate and think and I won't do it. So there!
Recently, I have been making books: polymer clay covers and binding them with the Coptic stitching. They make great books for sketching, writing or whatever. I sometimes call them the attitude, gratitude or platitude journals. I am going to try to insert a picture of one here:


OK I got the picture in all right but not in the right place (I fiddled around and got it). Anyway, this is the first book I made using the Coptic stitching method. Since this first one, I made quite a few more. It gives me the opportunity to play with all kinds of surface techniques (the polymer clay covers) and I can try all kinds of stuff inside the books.
"Livres d'artistes", we call these en français. Enough for this first post. I am going to learn as I go. Isn't that what life is about? (she ends on a philosophical note!)
