New Book Design - Peacock

As a follow up to my last post about the newest paper shipment, of course the first paper I got into was the peacock feather paper! I was practically drooling over it. I made plans and started cutting right after I took the photo of the papers in my last post.

I paired the peacock pattern with a golden mums on vanilla paper, which picks up the gold in the feathers, and echoes the circular eye as well.

You can really see it glistening in the light here.

I chose a teal bow, but royal blue would look equally good. You can find "Posh Peacock Guest Book" in my shop. This one is size XL, but I can make it in any of my sizes if you need something smaller.

To Be Published!

Okay, so here's the big news I hinted about last week...

Lark Books contacted me and asked if I would like to participate in a book on handmade mini books that will be published later this year. Of course I said yes!!

Here is my book they selected for publication:

Orange Burst Mini Book

I have wanted to have my work published for years now but never made the time to submit it. How cool is it that they came to me!

Congratulations are in order for three of my Etsy Bookbinding Team mates, Cindy of Useful Books, and Simone of Antico Valore, and ParksideHarmony as they had books selected for the project also!
