I am hooked on tussie mussies. Its something about the conical shape and being able to really "foof" them up. I have several in various stages of completion on my desk just waiting for the polka dot books to be finished and the last few Zines to be bound and mailed. (I had to order more) I now have more motivation to finish those other projects up because Maria over at The Junk Drawer is hosting a Tussie Mussie Swap! Sign ups just started today so skip on over and sign up. In addition to the actual tussie mussie we will fill them and swap goodies as well. She used my cherub tussie (which is on its way to a new home in Italy) for the blog side bar banner.. come play!
Speaking of the Polka Dot Fat Book.. I have a sneak peek of the binding process (mess) so you can see how we do it. Shosh came down on Wednesday and we spent at least 4 hours sorting and binding and gluing and eating ice cream and putting the books in bags. Today I worked on labeling the envelopes so they are pretty much ready to go. Following are some pictures of the table when we were binding and some of Shosh's amazing pages. I didn't really take good ones of mine.
