As I was putting together the very last one, I felt sad to think they were all going to be gone and my studio would feel so empty. I've loved assembling each and every one of these special pages of art.
Every book as been put together now, all I need to do is slip them into their padded envelopes and make labels. Now, that sounds simple, but that is a lot of labels to make, so I'll be at it most of the day, and hopefully will have all of the goodies ready to go to the Post Office by Monday afternoon. Wish me luck!
There was a set back earlier in the week, when my old printer shot craps on me. Usually, I make a few books, make some labels, and mail a tubful, then repeat. But without a printer, I just went ahead and made all the books, now I need to sit down and make all the labels at one time. Ugh, boring. Its more fun to take breaks from labels to go and play with pretty fairy pages!
Office Depot recommended this HP86000 plus printer to me, I was told that it will print 2000 some pages for the same amount of ink that my old one would print 200. That sold me. It was a bit more expensive, but I got a $50 trade in on my dead one, it came with ink, and it was on sale. So, I was glad to get it.
Till I got home and had to try to figure out how to set it up. There went a precious hour of my life.... but all is done and ready now, I'm off to type away the rest of the day!
And a thank you to all of the kind hearted, talented swappers who were so generous with their time and skills!
And who were so patient with the time it took me to get these made and mailed.
There is a Pinterest board here that I've tried to add pictures from my blog to. If you have pictures of your pages that you'd like to pin to that board, please request an invite to become another pinner on it.
Gosh, the studio is going to be empty with all of these gone!! I've had 2 dining tables filled with pages, a folding table to open packages on, another table filled stacked with covers, my work table stuffed with books in progress, and two other tables set up for wrapping and shipping stations.
Wow, this had taken over the whole room!
But it is less than 3 weeks until Romantic Gothic Ghosts, so its a good thing that the room is clearing out! I need to get that set up, make name tags, kits, and decorate. I've got some ideas that I hope will turn out cute. Beth has some too, and offered to come over to help.
By the way, that class is filling up. I have 3 people who are "maybes" and only 4 spots left. That means if the maybes are yesses, there is only one spot. Contact me if you are interested before its too late!!
