Hi all!

I am very happy to announce that as of today my books will be on display and for sale in a local liquor shop! I've been allocated a shelf that I've set up with some display boxes, an tiny easel, my books and my business cards. There are some wishing labels at the counter as well as my Christmas Ornaments for the rest of the holiday season!
Here are some pictures: (Apologies for the bad lighting)

In other news: I've bought a scandalous amount of stuff in the past month or so. Lovely materials but also machines that will make creating a large quantity of stock much less effort some! Here's what I bought:

Many beautiful papers!

I've designed some press and/or melting boards for synth-rope-binding and had them lasercut from MDF. I also bought a lot of rope.

I bought some cloth to complete my color palette and some new synthetic cloth called 'Balacron' to experiment with. I bought lots of index cards, thick printing paper and zip-lock bags. I've also bought some fabrics and a material called misty-fuse to create my own book cloth with synthetic fabrics.

Second hand items last but not least: I bought a perforator with adjustable 8mm punches and a stack-cutter (that will arrive tomorrow). I've also bought a printer that turned out to be faulty but the sellers happened to have another one that turned out to be just as faulty. I managed to combine the two into one perfectly working a3 duplex laser printer!

So, how have all of you been? Looking forward to a good holiday season I hope? Let me know! :)
