In my mind, that’s how I have been referring to this project so I it’s what I am going with for now: The Book Project. Between running hither and yon, it seems, I have managed to make a bit of progress.
One step was to create and finish the ceiling. I was going for a tin look. It might be kind of hard to see in these photos but I think it turned out well enough. When I showed it to Jay, he said, “What is that? Tin?”
Here’s the beginning: an ordinary piece of embossed scrapbooking paper.

Starting the process with a few sprays of ink:
Mostly finished although it doesn’t look like much in this picture:
Here’s a close up of the finished portion:
The next thing on my list was to make some shelves for the books. Not anything terribly challenging there since they are very, very simple ones.

In the meantime, Sebastian has approached me with his latest endeavor. Can you believe it? He wants his own car! I am considering it but I would hate to tell him yes only to find out that there is nothing out there he can actually drive. I think I will drive around and see if anything is available. I will let you know what I find out.
And one last photo to I hope will make you smile. This photo comes from The Bear’s Blog. It shows one of my little piggies (the stuffed kind, not the toe kind) arriving at her new home. These kinds of things just crack me up and of course, I am ever so glad my little friends are well loved too! It’s a great story so if you get a moment, go on over and have a read.
