A bunch of you have been following my adventures making dresses out of damaged books and have asked how to do it so I thought I’d share while we’re all trying to self-isolate and keep busy. One of the biggest things I’m using on a current dress is flowers made from book pages and it’s an easy craft to do while binging tv, especially if, like me, you have ADD and can’t concentrate on just one thing at a time.
I’m not sure how to embed a youtube video so click here if you can’t see it below:
And now…time for the weekly wrap-up:
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Eat lunch with a rabid raccoon. (The blue and red are out of stock already so make sure you pick a color that’s available on the sidebar.)
- Honestly, Dorothy Barker is all of us right now.
- For the love of God, unmute this.
- We’re still not open but we are getting closer every day. Nowhere Bookshop inside and out.
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by The Whole Cancer Thing, a book you should totally check out because if you or anyone you know is dealing with cancer they probably need a laugh and some understanding. This book is filled with stuff your doctor won’t tell you PLUS 101 must-have survival tips. Diagnosis, chemo, radiation and recover might be a little easier knowing someone successfully forged a path into the bell of the beast, got barfed up and lived to write about it. Get your copy here and read Anne Kruse’s tale to discover that stories about cancer can actually be entertaining. Who knew?
