I also gathered up scraps of all different papers – construction, handmade, japenese, etc – many leftover from my bookmaking days and piled them into a basket for Eily for easy access in craft-making. I’m thinking of doing the same in a couple months with fabric pieces, yarn bits, and other crafting odds and ends.
Eily has been drawing on 11 x 17 one-sided sheets leftover from B’s work and B bound them together into a book. Last night, we “read” it with Eily telling me about each page. Then, we wrote in the words. It’s all pretty exciting and I’m looking forward to making another one.
