I am always buying books, but I am becoming more discerning in my choices. This basically a book about creating books and journals from recycled and re-purposed materials, by Jeannine Stein, Quary Press. I had this idea after seeing the movie "Julie and Julia" that I would get this book and make on one book a week, something like "Roxie and Re-bound". Then real life set in, I have so many other projects that I have to balance. I will try and do maybe 5-7 of the books, there are 17 books in all. I want to try and make some books that I wouldn't automatically gravitate to. I figure I will learn some new tips and techniques that way. And I want to try and use what I have already, but I will allow myself a trip or two to the second-hand store for materials, if I have to!
