It’s been an especially rainy and dreary week here in Seattle. One of those weeks where you never quite dry out. So, this weekend I’m going to think lots of sunny thoughts and hope for a reprieve, if even a temporary one.
Whether or not the sun makes an appearance, I have something else to look forward to – a two-day workshop on bookmaking and bookbinding. With any luck it’ll help me toward succeeding at one of my craft commitments – to make memory boxes for all my years of memorabilia. We’ll see how it goes but I’m hoping to have a cool new Book in a Box to share with you next week.
Until then, here’s your weekly dose of the best of the web. Enjoy!
