Christmas bookbinding 2014

The accordion book class was fun! Thank goodness my friend Amy came early. I drafted her to help the later comers when I realized that I had attempted more than I could deliver—a bookbinding lesson for a dozen people. Everybody was cheerful and cooperative and patient, and we did get all those accordion books finished in two hours!
    My novel did not place in the First Novel contest. I admit I am disappointed, but I plan to edit it in the coming year and write the first draft of Book 2. Meanwhile, I am rebinding my own Bible.

Michelle and Jessica are almost finished! I wish I'd taken photos of everyone's books. Maybe next year.

Christmas Accordion Book

I still remember making my first accordion book a decade ago, in a class taught by a local artist. I’m teaching this basic little book structure at my home a week from today. In other news, the Christian Writers Guild has shut down after 50 years of service. I’m waiting to hear the fate of my First Novel entry.
