In love. In lust. In books…

I may have a hard time completing a full sentence in this post, as I’m seriously distracted right now by this awesome site! My brain feels even more full of crafting ideas and random thoughts than usual.
That site has the coolest stuff. Great tutorials, great inspiration, the best links to the other coolest bookbinding sites around. I’m just in awe, seriously. Already today I learned two new bookbinding stitches (the three hole pamphlet stitch and the long stitch) that I can’t wait to try out. The coptic stitch and I didn’t get along too well last time but I’m going to give it one more shot once I’m done playing with these ones.
I’m having a yard sale this weekend (weather permitting, anyway, it kinda looks like it might rain now, ugh) and I’m thinking about making up a dozen or so little blank books out of recycled papers and some of the tons of paint chip cards I have laying around. Also, I recently found a 1960-something edition of Curious George that’s full of vintage scribbles and awesome pictures, and I’m planning on using the long stitch to rebind it with a bunch of lined and blank papers to use as a journal.
And PS – I really wish I had ten bucks and a credit card, ’cause I’d sooo be getting this! I’ve been searching (and even trying to make_ the perfect datebook since ’07, no joke. I may just use this for inspiration and try again.
Okay, back to drooling and reading the comments I didn’t know I had, lol.
