I'm not here, [well, obviously I was here when I wrote this ... you're not imagining it.] but I'm not in my usual blogging spot right now, I'm in a cottage, crafting like a crazy person with 7 other equally-as-craftily-crazy friends.
As I'm away I thought I'd schedule this post to keep things ticking-over here until I get back - like how you're supposed to leave the heating on a tiny bit when you go away in the winter, so the water pipes don't freeze-up. So just consider this post me keeping my pipes warm ...
... moving swiftly on ...
When I was designing the labelling for my 'Plundered Pages' vintage paper packs, I came up with the tagline:
"I cut up the books ... so you don't have to."
Which I thought said everythign there was to say and which might strike a nerve because, really ... who likes cutting into books?
I know I don't!
But I bravely pick up my craft knife so that old, neglected books can enjoy a new lease of life with their lovely purchaser ... and so the lovely purchase doesn't have to feel sick doing it themselves!
[I know ... you're impresed at the levels of self-sacrifice I put into my business now aren't you? ;-) ]
However, while I do manage to cut up the majority of the books I gather-in ... there are others I collect which live in safety on the 'Keep away from the scissors' shelf.
My name's Julie ...
... and I'm a vintage book addict.
p.s: I'm also a Plundered Pages pusher. The full range is here and I'm happy to create bespoke packs based on any theme / combination of themes you'd like. [NB. any orders placed now will be posted out on Tuesday 22nd November because, like I said ... I'm not here ...]
