Belated linkless linkity

D’oh. You know things are bad when I didn’t realize what day of the week it was! Things continue to be crazy at work with disaster recovery, but keep your fingers crossed that we get the worst of it finished this weekend.

Reading Update
Little Book of Book Making: Timeless Techniques and Fresh Ideas for Beautiful Handmade Books by Charlotte Rivers. Probably the most interesting parts of the book were the sections featuring work by book binders from around the world. The actual book binding instructions were unfortunately not the most clear or detailed. But there were a few great tidbits, like a ratio for making cornstarch paste instead of wheat paste (very useful for we celiacs).

No linkity, but another cute cat picture and a couple book reviews…

My circadian cycle is so screwed up… Went to bed at 4:30 am Thursday and got up around 11:30 am to get back to work. Still probably a week or so of disaster recovery left, which equals a continually screwed up sleep cycle. I haven’t been this disoriented by waking/sleeping stuff since I was in the National Guard a couple of decades ago…

Reading Update
The Art of Whimsical Lettering by Joanne Sharpe. Inspiring explanation of how to embellish your handwriting in a variety of fun ways. Particularly useful for those of us who write a lot in art journals. 🙂
The Weekend Crafter: Rubber Stamp Carving: Techniques, Designs & Projects by Luann Udell. My absolute favorite book about carving rubber stamps – and I picked it up from a Little Free Library in my neighborhood.

Mayhem is in this picture, too! She’s the blurry dark spot barely visible between the slats on the chair seen between Chaos’ ears. 🙂
