Goal Complete

I made this using beautiful wood (of some type) and lazering this design from a photo I took. I liked the etched and cut quality. I turned it into a journal/tracker for myself for the next little phase of my life. Which is wonderful, considering that this is my 25th handmade book. My goal was to make 25 handmade books by the end of the year. I am on a roll, and I think I will make quite a few more. But it is nice to have finished one of my crafting goals for the year. I still have to finish a quilt, an outfit, a photo book, three paintings, and something else I am forgetting right now. I finished the rag rug, that was on my list. So I am truckin’ along! I hope you enjoyed this book! Thanks for reading!

    Have you taken book making classes or are you self taught? I’ve been wanting to do that for so long but it seems so hard! Your books are super rad, I’m jealous šŸ™‚

    • I took a class in 2009 then just kept working on improving my skills. Depending on how you learn, whether it is visually in person, or by book, it is not too difficult. There is quite a bit to remember and get used to, but once you have it, it is fairly simple. I encourage you to go for it! I know there are some good youtube tutorials. Good luck! Let me know if you have questions and I would be happy to answer them!
