When I got a mystery package a couple days ago and found that someone had sent me a copy of 500 Handmade Books Vol. 2. Now, if I’m going to be completely honest, the first conclusion I jumped to was that I had finally made it as a blogger. I was getting free stuff! I could quit my day job, I could quit that silly art thing I do and just blog and have people send me stuff! (that’s how this works, right?!) They probably sent me this book because I am an amazing blogger and they are dying to be included on this awesome blog. They didn’t write a note because they were just in such a rush to get it to me. Probably.
The idea that I might be included in the book, because I sent in an application a year ago to be included in this curated book since I make handmade books did not click until well after it should have (but seriously, a note or explanation would have been nice!). At which point, I realized I may not make it as a blogger, but maybe I’m doing something right with the art thing :) Regardless of how long it took me to figure out that I was indeed still first an artist and then a blogger, I am so excited to share that my book, Wolność i Prawda is included in 500 Handmade Books Vol. 2. juried by Julie Chen.
