Treasures from the Library Attic

Hey there-
I am not officially back, but I really wanted to stop by here to talk about something I am very excited to be a part of.
This year my local library asked me to help make some treats for the annual Guild of Artisan's Sale. We are making paper crafts made from recycled books and selling them to benefit the Bowdoinham Public Library.

Needless to say, I am hooked.
Below you will see a small sampling of things I have made for the sale. It is just a teaser though. There are many, many other talented volunteers who have made beautiful things!
If you live in the area I really hope you stop by.

Where: Bowdoinham Town Hall
When: Friday, December 3rd 6-8 p.m. & Saturday December 4th 10-4 p.m.




















































We hope to see you!!

So nice to 'see' you again. And those decorations are beautiful. Shame I am a bit too far away to come and support your library.

The photos are beautiful but the real things are even more so. Thank you, Katie for sharing your talents with the library so generously. The wreath is still my favorite, but those ballerinas are gorgeous.

Oh Katie, even if you're not "officially" back, I love reading your blog again! What beautiful things you have made. I am sooo in love with that wreath. Wish I was a little closer and I'd definitely come!

Lisa West said...

OH my goodness, I was going to say, Katie is that you, but then scrolled down far enough to see your kids and then your boots. So great to see you in blogland. I love what you have done with the old pages. I do hope some of these old books will be available for purchase as well as the art. I have used old pages before and my dad's old sheet music. The wreath of yours is my favorite. A very pretty blog! Have a blessed Thanksgiving, Lisa

I was fortunate enough to attend the library sale and made a few purchases. Everything was absolutely beautiful! I love your blog and your sense of design. I would love a tutorial for the paper flower wreath and the paper trees. Any chance you would post that sometime? Thank you for sharing your gorgeous crafts!
