This time last year I was 7000 miles away, celebrating my 30th birthday in Jakarta whilst surrounded by relatives. Today I’m at home, and all by myself – and I have to say it’s utter bliss. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family… but I’m very much a loner and this is much better for my sanity!
I have been thinking of that holiday though so I’ve spent the morning repurposing a vintage copy of Gulliver’s Travels so that it can be used as a travel journal or scrapbook.
I was able to retain the original end papers which I’m really pleased about as they do look lovely. The book now contains 104 pages (208 sides) of 140gsm recycled cartridge paper. It can be found in my Etsy shop, and I hope that it will go to a good home.
I think that’s plenty enough work for one day (especially as I’m supposed to be having a day off!), so I think I’ll down tools and head to the cinema!
