Karen Schaefer's, Bobi Wilson's, DS Watkin's, Annette Bouchey's and Patti Kirch's (favorite red),  hard covered journals results from Susan Kimmel's workshop held at DS Watkin's Studio.  Susan's Notes outlined tips to smart gluing, exacting measurements, alternative binding, book cloth making, hand saws and hole guide and how to fit everything into one day.

Old Clip Board Inspiration
Karen's ability to post what she likes to look at, techniques she wants to remember, bezels, layers, lace, words, photos inclusive, beautifully all on a clipboard, simply impressive.
I have one question, is it that easy?
