A couple of years ago I attended a great workshop at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts – it was a class on bookmaking. I didn’t know anything about bookmaking but wanted to learn and they had an opening (it was a very last minute thing). Hmm..I tend to do this a lot!
Anyway, after the class was over I ended up with a book that I wasn’t able to finish in time. I brought the book home (in its unfinished state) with every intention of completing it. It sat on a shelf for a really long time. As time went by and as my studio locations would change I would move the book with me. I found that I rather liked my book in this unfinished state. It represented me.
A while back I found this pedestal at an estate sale and brought it home not really knowing what to do with it.
Then I had a flash back…did you see that Designing Women episode where Julia and the girls were attending an art opening and she (absentmindedly) sat her purse on one of the pedestals??
Well, I now have the perfect place for my book!!
