i hope to see some new and known faces this saturday at the crafternoon tea market.
folks may be aware i have put my etsy shoppe on vacation mode until the 17th of december, after this market closes. my stock is so limited that i will be taking all of it to sell at my stall.
the last few days i've had my hands in lots of tea, laying out paper & waiting for it to dry - which is very slow due to the damp humid air & persistent rain... in obscure places, semi-dry paper is laid out to dry off. meanwhile, wet paper waits for an obscure place in its transit station: rolls of wax proof paper on top of an antique table.
paper upon paper.
inside the olde green press, dry paper which i had folded into sections becomes increasingly flat.
the radio hums,
the cat sleeps.
ducks quack and splash about in the little ponds outside,
rain drums on the roof.
a needle goes into paper,
comes out the other side,
and over again...
leather is polished, embossed & embellished.
snippets of fabric sneak under leather and
peak out of a hole,
tiny wee miniatures sleep in the Gus-press.
awaiting chains themorrow.
not alot of journals will be coming with me, but i can only do so much.
the most important thing is to have fun, and enjoy the company of other crafters,
which i so often crave.
(and maybe make a few bob.)
and maybe i might have some little treats, so be sure to come visit the Bibliographicas.
