Our little piece of library history.

I'm pretty excited to show you our newest piece of furniture. Isn't it amazing?

It's a gorgeous, 60 drawer library card catalog! I am currently in the process of sorting my craft disaster into lots of organized drawers. The kids each get 1 drawer for themselves and they are very excited about this and keep shuffling things around to try to decide what to keep there.

I seriously smile every time I walk into our dining room now. I just had to share this lovely bit of happiness with you!

A sneak peek at some of new things I have been making lately...

Hand stamped quotes on book pages. These are mounted on tiny canvases.

New literary necklaces. Here is one from a Pride and Prejudice book. Wouldn't this be lovely for Valentine's Day?
And literary quote note cards. I recently finished reading the Hunger Games series and thought that this quote from Mockingjay needed to be on a card.
More to come soon!

Valentine Craftacular!

I have had a busy couple of months and plan to check in with an update and photos soon so you can see some of the new things I've been making! But first, I want to tell you about my first craft show of 2012! 

The Bookish Life will be participating in the Valentine Craftacular on February 4th at the East Side Club in Madison, WI. There will be around 50 artists and crafters, a photo booth and a make & take craft table. Fun for the whole family! Admission is free and the first 50 shoppers will get a free tote bag stuffed with goodies from the vendors.
Here is a sneak peek at some of the shops who will be at the show. You can go to the Valentine Craftacular website for more information and a full vendor list! Hope to see you there!
