Welcome to Crazy Town
I’m thrilled with all of the submissions for my Hedi Kyle Festschrift giveaway! I am feeling in sync with many of your responses to “You know you’re a bookbinder when…”
I have been busy! I just finished packing up a wholesale order for a new client, Vermont Butcher Block & Board. Their new store in Burlington, Vermont will be opening in the next few months. They sell a line of wood-turned pens and wanted to have handmade journals as companions.
Yes, pens get lonely.
After dropping off the order later today, I’ll be attending the monthly meeting of the Book Arts Guild of Vermont. Today’s theme is Edible Books, which was inspired by the International Edible Book Festival. I have a concept in mind, but have yet to execute it. I really hope I can get it done in between the appointments I have today. If I do get it done, I’ll be sure to take pictures.
Lastly, I managed to volunteer myself for two presentations at tomorrow’s Spring Arts Marketing Conference, hosted by the Vermont Crafts Council. Hello, my name is Elissa and I don’t know how to say no. The workshops are Social Media for Artists and Etsy for Beginners. I am so worried about doing a good job that I’ve been working on these presentations for over a week. And I’m not done yet. It’s gonna be a late night.
If you haven’t entered the Hedi Kyle Festschrift giveaway yet, you still have time. I’m accepting entries until midnight E.S.T. on April 9th (that’s this Friday).
