An Interlude

One of the fun things about making your own books...

is that you can recycle all sorts of interesting papers to make the covers with.

And there can be a "by product" from making a batch of brownies.

... The results of a little creative interlude (or procrastination depending on your point of view) in a morning full of admin jobs.

Back to the paperwork now!
