I finished this book several months ago, but was really slow in posting (lost the cord to upload pics from my camera to computer for a bit there). It is the first and only soft cover book I have bound to date. It's small: 2.75"w by 4.25"h by 0.25"d and made with heavyweight printer paper cut to size. I used a coptic stitch for the binding (4 signatures) and embossed the cover paper to add some texture. I decorated the inside pages with acrylic paint, sharpies, and assorted craft supplies, and each page represents one item on my life to-do list. So essentially this is a book of things I want to do/be/accomplish in my life, in other words: a little book of goals. I titled it Notes to Myself, and of course as soon as I finished binding it, I thought of a few more goals for my list. Oh well. Maybe there will be a volume two.
