Book learnin'

I haven't blogged in forever, it seems.  I've been puttering around with all kinds of crafty stuff, and basically getting not much done.  My latest craze, though, has been making leather bound books.  I happened upon some really pretty journals made by other folks that are selling the books for a lot more than I'm willing to spend.  Sooooo, I started digging around in all those corners where I've been hoarding the scrap pieces of leather that I dig out of the garbage at work (we do upholstery work there).  It seems I have enough scraps to make a couple of cows (that's a lot by the way).  I've made a few journals now and I'm very happy with them.  I hope to make more so I can use up all that leather.
