What The Writer Is Up To
Look at what The Writer is making! Isn't it pretty?
She finds more ways to keep from spending time with me. What is that mess?
It's an art project. She took a class and is making a journal out of an old children's book. The covers of the book are the covers of the journal. She has added vintage touches like flowers from an old hat, fancy old buttons, wallpaper, trading stamps, tickets, lace, and trims. The Writer says she loves using vintage wallpaper.
You mean she actually cut up a children's book? I don't believe it.
She said she heard a tiny little scream when she ripped into the spine with her X-acto knife. The instructor had a lot of books for people to cut up. The Writer rescued an old reader called Johnny and Jenny Rabbit from sharp, biting blades and now it lives happily in our house.
