Hello bloggers!

After a very relaxing 3-day trip at river Ladonas, I am back home, in a snow-white Athens! It's a miracle all by itself! Although, the snow honored only the Northern suburbs (as usual) , it is a celebration every time it happens!

The bad news are that both me and hubby catched a cold, so here I am with a sore throat and a terrible headache, to show you an older but still undecorated project.

This time I made a book the traditional way - by thread and needle. I think that the technique turned out OK but as I had not bookbinding thread I used common kitchen waxed thread and it is a bit thicker than necessary.

The tiles are craft foam (the one we use for children's crafts) heat stamped and sprayed. The technique is very cool and you can watch a tutorial here.

I used the Vintage Market and the Savannah collections by 7Gypsies, Glimmer Mists and Gaffer tape. Sorry I cannot remember the brand of the stamps - they were bought at a clearance!

So, here it is:




For the sheer joy of it I will play in : Cretalicious Challenges, The Secret Crafter, Anything Goes ans SSS
