One Christmas was so much like the other, in those years around the sea-town corner now, out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve, or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.Dylan Thomas, A Child’s Christmas in Wales

I love books and I love making art, and have amassed quite a collection of art technique books. Periodically, I like to pick out a project to make. Last summer I had to cancel a planned trip because of a very sick cat and took a staycation instead. This Flippin’ Trip Book from Personal Geographies by Jill K. Berry was the perfect project to document my changed plans. Of course, because I’m great at starting projects, but not as good at finishing them, it took me until now to finish the book and blog about it.
What I Learned: To measure accurately and follow assembly directions.
What I Like Best: The color palette I chose.
What I Would Do Differently: I would paint the pull tab papers before assembling them.
