I'm a creative person. I like thinking up good ideas for papers, writing them. I do a little creative writing on the side.
But I also make things. Like a skirt. I made myself a long black skirt for a wedding I am in next week. And while it could be better, it looks pretty good for a first attempt at skirt making. I used this book, which teaches you how to make skirts without patterns. I am inordinately proud of my skirt, and might make another this week out of some linen Lance bought for me from Ikea.
I also make books, as I've shown before. So now I'm going to post pictures of a book I made for the same wedding as the skirt!
Here's a better shot of the spine stitching
I picked a cool endpaper too!

I started making books last August and have really progressed--this is one that I figured out how to make myself! It's a neat skill to have, and I love making books for friends.
