WOYWW - 102 feeling a little bookish

Since I can't show you my desk today, I'll show you this, a little mini book I made as a lark (well actually I retained my human form lol, think those feathers would make crafting difficult).  So this is the book bound closed with a piece of twine.
The open book.

I used my gypsy and a Cricut Marker (instead of a cutting blade) to decorate the inside of the pages. Before I cut and glued them into an orderly book, they were a wild jumble of spring folds. OK, confession time. I am a mini-bookoholic, specificially at this time, a Meander or Maze bookoholic. I just love how a simple 12" x 12" sheet of paper can become a little book with so many possibilities. This is my fifth variation. I'll be posting directions at some point, but if you search the internet for Meander or Maze mini book or mini album there are several videos and well-written tutorials if you want to get started while I bask in the golden light of caffeine (I am in serious need of coffee).

Happy 102 everyone :D. If you want to know what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a snoop at crafty desks from all over the world.

Now that looked trickey... getting them in the right direction so when you fold it they are all upright... very nice!
