Book Restoration

Every now and then I feel the need to learn something new in crafting. Without thinking much, I started reading out bookbinding and book restoration…and I’m completely fascinated! I love that  bookbinding involve wide array of textiles, and that it’s a fun mix of paper-crafting and hand-stitching. Not to mention the long long history behind it — I would never run out of things to learn. Anyhow. I’m practicing some book restoration technique on Immi’s favorite book which she has treasured for the past year and Lucian has destroyed (And I can’t find a replacement…it might have been a limited edition?).

It might take a while before I finish. Pretty much every page is damaged.

Important Lessons

I take my duty to teach kids important life-skills very seriously. Hunting? Accounting? Whatever. I’m talking about thrifting!!
