Peek

This is the beautiful hand bound
leather Bible Manolo made for me.
I mentioned it on the Etsy interview
as my most cherished handmade possession
& I wanted to share it with all of you.
And a little peek into the drawers
of my cabinet of curiosities ;)
I finally have one special drawer
for all of my hand carved stamps!

That is one gorgeous Bible. Mine is so torn up and falling apart! I made a "temporary" cover out of canvas and it...sort of works! :) But I hate to totally replace my old Bible with a new one...seems as if when I use my new one...I can't find ANYTHING in there!

Eres tan ordenada... Yo trato tambien de ser asi pero si tuviera que ser maestra de mis hijas al mismo tiempo, no se como me iria... me gustaria ver un dia donde les enseñas a tus hijos y, si no es much pedir, ver eso que vas a hacerle al niño con los dibujos de ciencias naturales... me llama mucho la atencion.

Your BIble is beautiful. I studied book binding in graduate school, but never progressed to leather. Your husband is very talented!

I posted a little photo of some tools and favorite things today, too, if you'd like to check them out.

Thanks for such an inspiring look at your art.

What a beautiful Bible, made with a lot of love and care.
Wow your drawers are so amazingly organized! I have plastic storage boxes...someday I’ll have drawers to call my own, until then I’ll just live vicariously through your blog (lol)!

I can't believe I found this post today...you are SO linked. I just dusted off my linoleum block printing supplies to make an Easter card...I've never used them before and have always wanted to. I really like your kid-friendly versions. Your collection looks lovely all in that little drawer!

That is incredible. My Mom had one in that exact color of leather... with teensy, tiny, neatly (might by the tinest handwriting I've ever seen?) written notes and thoughts in the margins... I've never seen another in that cover style since now!

Your photos are always so bright and beautiful. I wonder what type of camera you use and if you use special lighting? I am impressed with Manolo, furniture designer and book binder. You two are quite the creative pair. Did you meet in art school?

The Bible is beautiful, but I am SOOO envious of your drawer of goodies. I wish that I could stop by your studio, commandeer your stamps, and make wonderful art with all of your beautiful designs. Your drawers are evidence of time well spent. Thank you for the inspiration!

That is a gorgeous bible. Your husband is very talented. I've never done leather binding before, but I enjoy what I've learned so far.

And I really need a set of drawers like you have--those look really handy and useful. Love your stamps!

I have been away from my usual blog visits for months.......the Bible - it seemed like the post (of all that I'm catching up on) to comment on. What a beautiful thing to make for someone you love. ...it really grabbed my eye. Thanks for sharing that.
You are definitely a Proverbs 31 wife and mother.....wow.
