Worktable Wednesday

Today was a bittersweet day for me – I used up the last of one of my favorite materials. I’ve had this black and red, dragon brocade bookcloth for many years.

I used it on photo albums and without fail, it was a draw for men. Whenever I was at a craft show, men would make a beeline for this photo album – it was magical. I think it’s because the combination of colors and the dragon symbol were very masculine.

I affectionately refer to this photo album as The Hottie. There’s not much of a story behind that – when I made my first one, I took a look at it and thought, “Wow, you’re a hottie!” And a name was born.

I’m working on a custom order for someone and the last of my bookcloth was used for her photo album today. Sadness.

While I’m sold out of large photo albums with these materials, I do have a few small photo albums left. If you like them, head on over to Etsy and place an order soon – when they’re gone, they’re gone!

It’s always so sad when you finish up a good book cloth – could you try photocopying it? I’ve photocopied some of my art papers onto a thick good quality paper with great results – obviously the result would be a paper, but you might find some uses for it!

Maudie –

I do have a small piece left that I might use to make a little something for myself. 🙂
