Bookgirl has a great discussion going now on her blog about dreaming and doing. I've been happily getting my studio ready but also thinking...what about after it's done?
My local book arts center, MCBA, is having an evening of wine and books in late August to show off material in their shop and I want to use that as a motivator to get some book work done. To get started, I went over there this morning and chopped some board for boxes. Studio time there is expensive, so you can't sit around afterwards making sure everything is square. I'll check my work at home later today or tomorrow. My hope is that I can get some decorative boxes done and perhaps some drummed books, similar to what we did at Penland. I'm also looking into a shop on Etsy. My ultimate goal is that some sales can help pay for supplies, at least.
