A Bevy of Books!

So for the last few days I have been working on my trades for Artfest. Apparently the trades are a big deal and I am kinda excited about it. I have been making all kinds of things to swap with people.

Over the weekend, I came up with the idea to make these teeny little notebooks. I thought they would come in handy for people to jot down addresses, emails, that kind of thing. It was also a good way to break in my new Rubicoil machine!

Yesterday I went over to my friend Penn's gorgeous new house (which is almost finished being built-just the small details left to complete) and showed her all my trade stuff. She was oohing and aahing so I guess that means I did okay! :)

The funny thing is that while I have prearranged to swap with friends I know who are coming, I have no idea how many other people will want to trade with me, so I keep right on making things. It's okay if I come home with some-no biggie. I have been toying with the idea of perhaps selling some of these things on my website, but haven't made up my mind yet one way or the other.

Only 37 more sleeps to go!!
