making

wirebound books for i like you
right around the time i decided that i was no longer interested in selling my work on commission in local shops, i did some deep cleaning in the boxes, drawers, and closet of my office. damn, i have a lot of paper. and most of it is cut down to a certain size, intended for a project i never followed through on. i hate throwing things away (i would recycle any paper i decide to purge), so finding the paper was the kick-in-the-butt i needed to make stuff. i contacted a local shop to see if they were interested in restocking any of my work, and i was surprised at the size of the list they sent me. since sales in my etsy shop have been really slow in recent months, i’ve decided that commission is probably the best way for my work to end up in new hands. so i’ve been squeezing in a little bit of making between work, school, and other life stuff.
