The Perfect Art Form

I think I've found my perfect art form. Making blank books! I love to read and write and I collect words and quotations like dogs collect fleas. I also like to stitch and glue and make collages and assemblages. Making books combines all of these activities - AND on top of all that, they are useful!

A linen-covered blank book with a felt bird and French ribbon.

I love this quotation. I have a stack of journals that go back years which I've filled with the breathings (and cryings and joys and thankfulness of my heart.)


I've made these for the craft fair at Willis Point on Saturday. If you're in the Victoria area, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself.

  8. Lorrie, I have to tell you how much I love your blog and your creative spirit! These books are so very charming. I'm off now, to look after Mike (my husband's mom) as she's not feeling well. But I can't wait to get back so I can really take the time to browse through all your wonderful posts.
    Warmly,
    Tracey
