lead

I've really been missing posting here. I've still been taking pictures of the things I've been making, doing, seeing, but I can't find my camera lead to upload them. And it's not the same without images is it... I miss sharing the pictures here, the process of sorting through, looking again at the books and boxes I've made, the experiments, details, seeds planted. Gathering my thoughts and writing them down. There's something about this process that I find so useful, both in the middle of making and afterwards, almost like taking a step away, to look and think about what's been done, what worked, what could be better... the thoughts are never quite concrete in my head, as much as they seem to be, until I think about how to write them down. And if I don't pin them down they slip away. It probably seems obvious...

I've got a clamshell box to show you, A3, with inlayed text. And a set of three stacking trays (which all fit together, and I was very surprised indeed!) A sock elephant and some new soft cover books, not to mention the pea shoots coming up in the garden. As soon as I find the lead for the camera (as soon as I can unpack!) I'll be here...

It will be like birthday and Christmas all rolled into one when you find your lead and are able to share your pictures with us! Don't worry, we are patient, we will wait, it will turn up ...

Best wishes, Carolyn

ps. in the meantime I'm having a giveaway over on my blog that might just cheer you up ...

I'm sure it will be worth waiting to see your images Sarah.

The lead will appear. Everything does eventually as I'm finding as I plough my way through the never ending boxes. I feel as though I've been in moving mode for months, probably because it has been months. My printer turned up with no damage but my guillotine is badly damaged, something I can't cope with yet. Neither can I bring myself to blog but I am avidly reading and feel I'm staying in touch with the book world. I look forward to seeing photos of your work whenever you can put them on.

I hope you're getting settled more and more into your new home (and that you find all your camera parts soon). I can't wait to see some more of your inspirational pics. Yours is one of my favorite blogs.
