crickets, be gone with you

my poor little etsy shop has been severely neglected. so much so, that when you enter, all you hear are the crickets that have set up camp....and the noise is starting to irritate the guests. so, yesterday i had a binding party in my studio and created several books. maybe this vintage-style parisian journal will chase those crickets away.....

or this one with sweet little red birdies and green birdcages.....


or this "book of me", covered with linen book cloth and a chipboard
die-cut on the front.

i also made another one of these, and several more of these.....
buh-bye crickets.....

I think the noise from the crickets in MY ETSY shop could drown yours out!

A good reminder to get creating!
