I decided to save something special for my 200th post. Holy goodness, it’s my 200th post!!
On September 6, Frank and I shared our one year wedding anniversary. The paper anniversary.
Around June, I started to look for viable paper options. Things like tickets to a show, while appropriate for us as people, were out because we’re onboard until December. I don’t do paper craft. What to do? I scoured the Internet for not-lame suggestions, and came up mostly empty.
But then I stumbled on a tutorial for bookbinding on deviantart. Bookbinding…I bet I could do that. So, I would go to the craft shop and glance at the items I would need, and decided that it might be a bit more trouble than it’s worth while onboard a cruise ship.
But then, my mother gave me a great idea! Surely they sell bookbinding kits! And they do! Off to amazon.com I went, and there it was. So now I have a kit…and a tiny room we both live in, and similar work hours.
What should have taken an afternoon, became a three week project as I glued tiny pieces and then pushed it all away really fast as soon as I heard the card key.
The only thing I didn’t like about the kit was that the cloth they give to cover the book is a camel tan color. I ditched that part and found a black cover and put some cross stitch on it.
Yes…a Zelda reference on our Anniversary Book
