Wow, it seems like forever since I've posted to my blog but there is a good reason for it!

First, I made a new Pez web site!  Click on comic to visit web site!

Being inspired by that one, I made another one dedicated to my Paint by Number collection!  Again, click on photo to visit site.

Stop by and let me know what you think!

Geez, more book folding?

A mushroom or in the future, a birdhouse!

Okay, I did NOT do this one, the hubby did.  I don't think I can do this type.  They require a lot more work and you actually have to pay attention.

It requires a template, drawing lines and did I mention, you have to pay attention?

I love it, the photo just doesn't do it justice and now he'll have to do more of them!

Book Folding

I thought I'd get all my book foldings together.  Here are some old ones and some you haven't seen yet.

These are what started it all.  I just HAD to have a tree!

Once I started, there was no stopping.  They were so much fun to do!

My hubby surprised me with this one, made from one of his old journals from work.

Now it is time to see what other one I can do! Another one using a journal.

This one is small but fun!  Would be great for place holder or recipes.

Next ones are called cylinders.  The one on the right, back is the first one I did using a paperback book and leaving some pages on each side.

The second one I did was another one with a journal.  It is the one on the left.  Used all the pages but kept the cover.

Love this little one!  I wanted to try one completely using a book but I'm out of paperback books!  And since I can't get out for a few days, I used a small tablet that I made (one is shown in the first photo of these) and double folded the pages.  Love it and can't wait to do this with a real book!

I'm using the first one I made for photos and other various items.  I'm thinking about adding tabs to the tops of a few pages and using one of these for coupons.  Wouldn't this look awesome in a vintage book with vintage photographs?

This is what the journal one looks like on the side.  I have each of the journals set back into a cabinet shelf and one hanging above the cabinet.

This one looks nicer in real life.  I'm thinking it could be fuller but I used the entire journal.

That is one I'll have to keep working on!

This is the last one I've done and OMG, I love it.  This was made from one of those travel guides you can get from AAA.

Yes, there is one that is missing.  That great big giant one that wouldn't stand up by itself.  I just couldn't take it so I let the dog rip it apart.  Fun for both of us!

Looking forward to getting out to the thrift shop for more books!

What goes best with a funky chair?

Why, a funky footstool, of course!

I can't believe I found another one!

Unfortunately, it was left in sunlight too long but I still love it!  The "grass" inside is browned around the edges and that is exactly how a terrarium would look in my house.  I never could grow a terrarium.

Oh, I got a few buttons, too.
