Well, I played with clay for a while. Watched a video. Googled. Smooshed. Kneaded. Rolled. What I learned was to be very impressed with anyone who can do anything with clay!
I won't be making baskets or clay items for Christmas! Back to the books - reading one or making more for my bookcases. I like making mini books. I like building things. I like painting things. Maybe I'm trying to do too much?!
For those who asked, I used photos copied from the internet for my books. Pasted them to a Word document. Then I resized them and printed them out. For the covers I used Casey's tutorial. I used a thin white foam sheet for the inside. Cardstock for the outside. Then I pasted my little printed cover on. Easy.
That's what I need now. Another easy project! Maybe I'll go take a nap first...
