I am rambling on this Wednesday because it is time to link up with WOYWW (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday). Go to Julia's Stamping Ground to join in.
My crafty workdesk was awaiting a delivery from an Etsy seller in the UK, which arrived yesterday - so now I can continue with stitching up the journals I made for July. I only had a medium-weight light coloured thread with my Book Making Starter Kit from the Vintage Paper Co , and really needed a heavy-weight version to cope with the thick watercolour paper I am using for pages, plus I wanted some pretty colours to play with. I went on Etsy and found buchertigersupplies (lots of lovely bookbinding stash).
Here is the package -
- and here is my craft table -
My very first stitched journal is on top (it has been sitting under a heavy box for a several hours - but still not sitting flat due to the very thick paper I used for the pages), and the two others for this particular project are underneath awaiting pages and stitching. I made a 4th (on the glass cutting board), which is for another project - and the strips I trimmed off will be used to make a belly band to keep the 3 journals together. You can see some canvases that I bought from The Works on top of my current practice journal - and scrap paper/kitchen roll. You can also spy my stripy rug.
I would be too ashamed to show the rest of my craft room for now, as I had my Ikea delivery on Friday and there are various boxes lying around awaiting the dreaded 'putting together'. Book shelves (as I ran out of room on the shelves on the landing outside the room) and another Raskog trolley. I will be taking photos and making a video next week.
Happy WOYWW to whoever I do not manage to visit.
