Last week I completed books 362-365 of my 365 book challenge, which means the challenge is officially complete! My last four books of the year were a large red coptic journal, two books made from recycled tea boxes, and a green envelope book.
I think it is very fitting that I started the year by making an envelope book, and I ended the year by making an envelope book. Looking back on the challenge, it is amazing to think that I accomplished so much during the year. The challenge helped me build inventory for shows, gave me a reason to publish blog posts every week, and got me started with a facebook page for my business.
I want to thank everyone that has followed along on my journey this year and encouraged me to keep going. I will still be making books in 2014, just not with such a strict quantitative deadline. However, with the snowfall and frigid temperatures we have been getting in Cleveland lately, I am looking forward to curling up on my couch, taking a break from books, and working on some knitting for a while.
