Hi, all. I've been working on the open book style and have made several this way. I'm trying out the Etsy thing, so if anyone's interested in purchasing one, or seeing more pictures - click on the link below.
I've continued with the book making little by little and here are the results. In the end (as if there could be an end), I think my favorite method is to print book printies onto printable fabric, give it a thin coat of modge podge and then glue a front a back cover cut from cardstock. I tried using parchment for the pages (browned in the toaster oven), and also plain paper pages with a gold edging. They both work very well.
I also made a trip to Micheal's on the long weekend and found these amazing little (5mm) pearly tiles. I just HAD to find a place to stick 'em. I think they'll make a nice "backsplash" in my kitchen cupboard. These come in about 4 different colors and one size larger too.

Welcome to my blog! A few months ago I was searching for something to fill the downtime in the the slower season of my profession (winter in real estate) and suddenly remembered a repressed and unrequited passion from my youth - all things miniature. I have purchased my first miniature house kit (the Beacon Hill from Greenleaf) and am now well into construction. Hope to share ideas with you!
