Lately I have been cleaning and getting organized and there are a bunch of craft supplies that I have been holding on to because when I get in to a new craft I tend to go crazy and buy way too much. So I have finally decided to get rid of all these crafts that I don't really do any more but instad of just throwing out all of these supplies if I can't find some one that wants them the I am just going to make some thing out of it. Now i just have to decide what to do with all the things that I make, I can either just keep it as a supply of gifts for my friends and family, sell it or just give it away for no reason. I think what I do with the results will depend on what I end up making. So I guess time will tell...

So last week I went into the city (NYC) for a supply trip because there are not really any stores that I know of on Long Island that sells booking making supplies so ever since I moved home I take a day off once and awhile to go in to the city to get supplies. This trip I got to go visit my freshman roommate that is now working at Da Vinci Art supply on 21st St. and not only did i fine my friend working but they also had a small but pretty good bookmaking section and a nice supply of paper.
Among the normal bookmaking supplies there was kits by Lineco that are how to for different books and most I have learned to make either in my bookmaking class in college or from books except one a star book. When closed it looks like a accordion book but when you open it, it becomes a star! This is my new favorite book!! The one in the picture above is one of the ones from the kit that I bought but I am working on more of my own style books more to come soon!

So as I has said before now that my Basement is finished and I am setting up my work space that I would post some How-To's as I decorate. So heres my first one it's a very simple one
Hanging Storage for rolls of paper
1) Get zip ties that will go all the way around the rolls that you want to hang.
2)Create a loop with the first zip tie and then link the rest to the one before it creating a chain.
3) there are many ways that you can hang the chain that you have created in my space there is a drop celling so I just used mini clamps to attach them to the frame.
4)Insert the rolls that you want to store and you are done!
I made mine for my rolls of book cloth but you can really use it for a lot of things.

So back in October me and my friend Casey had a booth at the Bellmore street fair, the first day really tested us but the second day made up for it. It was a lot of fun and I hope to do more in the future! So here are some photos of the booth.

Besides working on my new work space in my house I have also been working on a new website that will hopefully be better then just a flicker for showing what I am working on and what I have made and is already out in the world. I started making a site with the help of moonfruit.com it is a really user friendly website designer that is easily customizable to your own needs. I am having a lot of fun working with it to make my new site, So this is what I have done so far and it will just get better!
