Stone Face and Mr. Moosie

Sometimes when I work on a complicated project, I lose my sense of humor. I'm too caught up in the acidic paper and red-rotted leather of a thousand-detail repair. So I keep my bookbinding workshop elves nearby. They remind me not to take myself too seriously.
My sister-in-law is an artist. She "found" this happy guy in the stone.

While working on dilapidated Family Bibles, I can feel like Mr. Moosie.
