This is something I made for Katie for her birthday. To be honest I've wanted to post this for a while but I wanted Katie to see it first. I made the book from thick, stiff cardboard, brown paper, craft paper, sketch book paper and ribbon. And lots of PVA. I found quotes in books and on the internet that meant something to me, and I wrote them on the pages with pictures to match. If you click on each individual picture you can read the quotes. By the way, I'm not a total cheapskate; I bought her stuff too. 🙂
Also I thought I just say this book used up the last bit of brown paper I had. This is significant because the brown paper made the envelope that Jane sent to me. It was such gorgeous paper that I couldn't throw it away and used it lots of my drawings ('Gravity's on the Increase', the picture for my grandparents, etc.) I just though you might like to know that it went to lots of good use.
