Finals are over, my friends. After a bitter (seemingly endless) battle with American Psychological Association’s 6th Edition, my last paper is in, my last performance performed, and my last all-nighter (seriously, I am way, way too old for those) pulled – at least until next semester.
And now it’s time to scramble about and deal with all the holiday prep I’ve neglected the past two weeks. If you’re in the same boat, I bring to you a delightful (and delightfully easy!) idea for a homemade gift.
Before we begin, I’d just like to take this moment to give myself a round of applause for getting this post up on time. It’s finals time round these parts, and I’ve got a good hundred pages of brilliance to turn in.
Thank you. Thank you all.
And now I present – The Book Lover’s Holiday Wreath!
I’ve been a little obsessed with Book Art recently. I have three books on pop-up crafting. I have a huge file of google images. I pled with the director of my PhD program to help me find a way to fit “Printmaking: the Book as Art” into my requirements. (No go. “I can stretch a lot, but I can’t stretch Studio Art into Research Methodology,” he said.)
Both this site and this site (they have naughty titles, but completely innocent AND AMAZING content) have become the source of far too much daily gazing. I mean, look at this!
