My Creative Space

I skipped last week's Creative Space since I've been spending more time on science work than craft work. But yesterday I took the afternoon off for MMG craft day. The MMG team is incredibly supportive & we decided to designate Wednesdays as a day to create & list as much as possible. So that's what I did.

Mostly, I worked on notebooks.

A bulk order of mini ones:

A custom coptic one:

And some new composition books:

The plain turquoise one is my favourite (with a black back cover & lined black inside covers) though the one with cars (and colourful "roads" on the back cover) is pretty sweet too.

I actually started these last fall (wow. slacker or what?) & only just covered the insides yesterday:

Just a few more finishing touches before they're ready to list.

Finally, I also collaged a branch onto my yellow mixed-media painting:

I'm going to add some cherry blossoms next. I think the background has that perfect spring feel to it.

Head on over to kootoyoo for more creative spaces!
