Worktable Wednesday

Just like last week, I spent the morning preparing for my class at the Orchard Valley Waldorf School. I’ll be writing a post tomorrow about my students’ progress on their books.

My time in the studio was pretty mellow today. I focused on preparing pages for binding. While I was working, I thought to myself, “There’s something about a smooth, uncut piece of paper that’s bliss.” It’s so true.

I started out working with my go-to journal paper, Speckletone. I’ve been using this paper for a long time and I really love it.

Then I got to work with some new paper. You are now getting sneak peek at the papers that will be used in my new line of journals debuting at next week’s Craft Vermont show.

I love the lime paper so much – the color is really vibrant. And it’s so smoooooooth. I just want to roll around on it.

By the time I finished cutting and folding, I had pages prepared for 17 journals. I believe that I can say I’ve put in a good day’s work when the final count involves a prime number.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
