A local friend opened her art studio/garage for a wonderful class, taught by the patient and funny Jeannine Stein. Even having made a few books, I learned great little tips and tricks - classes are so fun that way.
Here's Jeannine showing us how to bind...
....And here's all of us showing off our finished books.
Jeannine was a treat not only because of her easy-going style, but she pre-cut all the blank pages and cover paper - yay! Check out her blog for other classes around L.A. she'll be teaching - very much worth taking!
The big job ahead though, is convincing my husband we don't need to park in the garage, when it could be so better utilized as my creative wonderland. Look at that shelf above us! The room was filled with gorgeous art our hostess, Mikki Soliday, had made (that's her in the front left). Thanks for the fun afternoon, Mikki and Jeannine!
