Thursday was just one of those days! John and I hit the ground running, and I barely stopped. My Featured Artist Show gets installed on Saturday, and there is tons of stuff to do between now and then. And because I didn't have enough to do, I decided to make my own guestbook! I just wasn't inspired by the offerings of the local Hallmark store. I bought one just in case I don't get mine finished in time -- or in case I don't like it -- but I'm working hard to get it done. I think a handmade guestbook will be so much more interesting than one that came from Hallmark. I used one of Kelly Rae Roberts' techniques for my guest book. She outlines steps for making a journal out of old hardback book covers. I adapted her instructions for my guestbook. I've got 10 pieces of watercolor paper to bind between my book covers. I'll bind the book with ribbons. I think it will look nice.
I only have a few things left on my to-do list, so preparations are coming along nicely. I'm a little panicky because there is anything at all to do, but it would be unreasonable to expect that I would get everything done days ahead of time. Many of the things I have to do will only take a minute or two -- I just have to sit down and do them! Friday is my day for that. But the big stuff is done, so I'm happy.
