LOTS OF SNOW
We have been having a bit of snow here in Southern Oregon and a lot up here on our mountain. We had about 17 inches over two days. This is very unusual. A few years ago we had 20 inches, but usually we have one or two snows that drop a few inches and melt pretty quick. This is lasting and we nestled in for a couple of days. And the snow still didn't melt so we had to plow out to the paved road a mile and a half away. Once out there we found the roads clear and everyone going about their lives as usual. This always surprises me. I think everyone around must be snowed in too and hunkered down in front of the woodstove like we are.
So I petted cats, made some Christmas presents and some new books. I love the new books. It's a wonderful thing to love what I make. I come in from the studio all aglow and full of satisfaction. Soft covered books are very appealing to me right now. I do some that are what I call Bound Art because there are lots of pages of different sizes filled with art bound up with the blank pages. And I have been doing single signature books too which are so sweet and easy and make nice gifts.
