<< With the holiday season approaching more rapidly than I can possibly
imagine, I was wondering if any of you had an idea of a place where I
could start with a particular project.>>
I thought I might give you a hint about where to get interesting papers.
I work with two local printers who save me all their paperscraps. From
one of the printers I always receive small pieces of paper about 3 x 5
that would work perfectly for books. I normally take boxes of the paper
to local pre-schools and elementary schools so that they can use the
paper but also keep small boxes for personal use. The printers feel
good because they're not throwing the paper away, I feel good because
I'm recycling and doing my bit for the community and I get paper that's
cut for free.
Perhaps if you have some local printers near you - you could work out a
similar arrangement and that would at least give you some free paper to
start you on you're journey.
<< I would like to make small books for people,>>
I also attended the class in Atlanta and hope to make several small books
for Christmas. I wish we had more local classes as I'd really be
interested in taking them.
I think I read briefly something about a place in Riverdale? Is that
Riverdale, Georgia? Do you have any info on this?
