         "content": "<p>Starting with <strong>1. MEDICAL</strong><br />\r\nCrabby Old Lady is sorry to have been absent here for a few days. This blog is Crabby's job. It is what she does. She enjoys it still even after all these years. She learns a lot both from the work that goes into it and from readers too. She misses it when she is away or out of commission for awhile.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>To bring you up to date, Crabby's cancer has disappeared or at least gone into hiding and last Thursday, doctors did an amazing maneuver to stop an internal bleed they and Crabby have been keeping eyes on for two or three months.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>With two little holes, one in in Crabby's neck and the other in her groin, they used “interventional radiology” to thread their way to the bleed somewhere in her abdomen, insert a stent – not unlike the kind used for heart patients – that will force blood to go where it should be instead of where it has been going.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>For Crabby, it was easy – she slept through the procedure – and woke with two small Bandaids covering those two tiny incisions.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There was no pain afterwards and she went home that evening, slept like a newborn babe and felt terrific on Friday, enough to attend her regular current affairs discussion group.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby hopes the stent works; she's tired of anemia, blood transfusions and iron infusions that had become a regular part of treatment.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>2. PANCREATIC CANCER AND THE MEDIA</strong><br />\r\nThere are a few words in the English language that are terrifying: for Crabby, “pancreatic cancer” is at the top of the list.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Has Crabby mentioned that 35 years ago her father died of it? Until her diagnosis last year, Crabby had almost forgotten. Now she can't avoid it and the reason is that it appears to be the media's new go-to disease.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Pancreatic cancer is much less common than, for example, breast, lung and prostate cancer but it is much more deadly. Only ten percent of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are eligible for the only treatment – the Whipple procedure  - and many of those patients die soon anyway.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby is deeply grateful every single day that she could undergo the Whipple, that it was successful and that she has recently been pronounced cancer free. She would like to stop thinking those words now but there are reminders everywhere she turns.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There are the ubiquitous cancer treatment commercials on TV, in magazines, even giveaway newspapers and Crabby made the mistake of searching for some information about pancreatic cancer online.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Now, pretty young women with big smiles on their faces follow Crabby everywhere on the web promoting a link to a pancreatic cancer website. It's not unlike those marketing idiots who spend six months showing Crabby ads for the shirt she already bought.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Shirt. Kitchen sponges. Cancer. What's the difference?</p>\r\n\r\n<p>It gets worse. This past season, Crabby has seen at least half a dozen television dramas that have made pancreatic cancer a plot point. “Fred won't be back. You know he has pancreatic cancer and won't live more than a couple of months.”</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Geez. Thanks.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Over the weekend, Crabby read Barbara Ehrenreich's new book, <em>Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer</em>.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>It's a strong polemic with, among other kinds of information, a lot about how cancer tumors in general work and how new types of treatments are being developed at the cellular level.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>But even Ehrenreich, among all the different kinds of cancers she might mention, won't let go of making pancreatic cancer the centerpiece.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>In the space of two pages she tells readers that Rockefeller Foundation director John H. Knowles died of it in 1979, at age 52; Apple CEO Steve Jobs died of it in 2011; Henry S. Lodge, co-author of <em>Younger Next Year</em> (a dubious assertion) died of it in 2017 at age 58.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby wants nothing more than to leave this horror behind and the media just refuses. Maybe zombies have worn out their fright value and pancreatic cancer is writers' latest ploy to scare the bejesus out of us.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>3. CRABBY IS DONE WITH POLITICS AND TRUMP</strong><br />\r\nCrabby Old Lady has silenced the cable news channels in her home. No more. The anchors and hosts treat every Trump tweet as if it's a revelation when it is only repetition. Different topic sometimes, same complaint: “I'm so wonderful, why doesn't anyone like me? Throw them all in prison.”</p>\r\n\r\n<p>He's an idiot, a con man, likely a criminal but no one with the power to do anything will deal with it. They've always got an excuse. There are 535 members of Congress and even the few good guys are weenies in the face of Trump. They all deserve to be thrown out.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There is only one effective group of activists trying to make the U.S. a better place and they are all 17 years old. Aside from her excellent medical team, Crabby Old Lady is in a very bad mood today.</p><br />",

She misses it when she is away or out of commission for awhile.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>To bring you up to date, Crabby's cancer has disappeared or at least gone into hiding and last Thursday, doctors did an amazing maneuver to stop an internal bleed they and Crabby have been keeping eyes on for two or three months.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>With two little holes, one in in Crabby's neck and the other in her groin, they used “interventional radiology” to thread their way to the bleed somewhere in her abdomen, insert a stent – not unlike the kind used for heart patients – that will force blood to go where it should be instead of where it has been going.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>For Crabby, it was easy – she slept through the procedure – and woke with two small Bandaids covering those two tiny incisions.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There was no pain afterwards and she went home that evening, slept like a newborn babe and felt terrific on Friday, enough to attend her regular current affairs discussion group.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby hopes the stent works; she's tired of anemia, blood transfusions and iron infusions that had become a regular part of treatment.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>2. PANCREATIC CANCER AND THE MEDIA</strong><br />\r\nThere are a few words in the English language that are terrifying: for Crabby, “pancreatic cancer” is at the top of the list.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Has Crabby mentioned that 35 years ago her father died of it? Until her diagnosis last year, Crabby had almost forgotten. Now she can't avoid it and the reason is that it appears to be the media's new go-to disease.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Pancreatic cancer is much less common than, for example, breast, lung and prostate cancer but it is much more deadly. Only ten percent of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer are eligible for the only treatment – the Whipple procedure  - and many of those patients die soon anyway.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby is deeply grateful every single day that she could undergo the Whipple, that it was successful and that she has recently been pronounced cancer free. She would like to stop thinking those words now but there are reminders everywhere she turns.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There are the ubiquitous cancer treatment commercials on TV, in magazines, even giveaway newspapers and Crabby made the mistake of searching for some information about pancreatic cancer online.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Now, pretty young women with big smiles on their faces follow Crabby everywhere on the web promoting a link to a pancreatic cancer website. It's not unlike those marketing idiots who spend six months showing Crabby ads for the shirt she already bought.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Shirt. Kitchen sponges. Cancer. What's the difference?</p>\r\n\r\n<p>It gets worse. This past season, Crabby has seen at least half a dozen television dramas that have made pancreatic cancer a plot point. “Fred won't be back. You know he has pancreatic cancer and won't live more than a couple of months.”</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Geez. Thanks.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Over the weekend, Crabby read Barbara Ehrenreich's new book, <em>Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer</em>.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>It's a strong polemic with, among other kinds of information, a lot about how cancer tumors in general work and how new types of treatments are being developed at the cellular level.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>But even Ehrenreich, among all the different kinds of cancers she might mention, won't let go of making pancreatic cancer the centerpiece.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>In the space of two pages she tells readers that Rockefeller Foundation director John H. Knowles died of it in 1979, at age 52; Apple CEO Steve Jobs died of it in 2011; Henry S. Lodge, co-author of <em>Younger Next Year</em> (a dubious assertion) died of it in 2017 at age 58.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>Crabby wants nothing more than to leave this horror behind and the media just refuses. Maybe zombies have worn out their fright value and pancreatic cancer is writers' latest ploy to scare the bejesus out of us.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><strong>3. CRABBY IS DONE WITH POLITICS AND TRUMP</strong><br />\r\nCrabby Old Lady has silenced the cable news channels in her home. No more. The anchors and hosts treat every Trump tweet as if it's a revelation when it is only repetition. Different topic sometimes, same complaint: “I'm so wonderful, why doesn't anyone like me? Throw them all in prison.”</p>\r\n\r\n<p>He's an idiot, a con man, likely a criminal but no one with the power to do anything will deal with it. They've always got an excuse. There are 535 members of Congress and even the few good guys are weenies in the face of Trump. They all deserve to be thrown out.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>There is only one effective group of activists trying to make the U.S. a better place and they are all 17 years old. Aside from her excellent medical team, Crabby Old Lady is in a very bad mood today.</p><br />",

I made the fabulous <a href=\"http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/omas-green-mountain-salad\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">Oma&#39;s Green Mountain Salad</a> again (without the ramps/garlic and with slightly less mayo).

I thought I&#39;d try something new, but if I go that route again, it&#39;ll definitely be&#0160;<a href=\"https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/la-bete-noire-235831\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">La Bete Noir</a>!</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: left;\">The weather is FABULOUS!

The eastern one, where the harbour was located, is part of the modern town. The very Mediterranean landscape which surrounds the ancient ruins attracted the attention of Albert Camus (1913-1960), a French writer born in Algeria and best known for his novel&#0160;<em>The Plague</em>. In 1939 he wrote&#0160;<em>Nuptials at Tipasa</em>, a short account of his stay in the small town and of his visit to its ancient monuments.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa01.jpg\" title=\"View of the villa\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>View of Villa of the Frescoes and in the background the western hill and Mount Chenoua, which hides the view of&#0160;Cherchell, ancient Caesarea Mauretaniae</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\">A number of rich houses stood near the shore of the central hill. One of them was accessed from&#0160;Cardo Maximus<a href=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa.html#Cardo\"></a>&#0160;via a portico which led to a large courtyard. Fragments of paintings were found on the remaining walls of some rooms and thus it is called Villa of the Frescoes, although the proper term should be&#0160;<em>Domus</em>(house). It enjoyed a commanding view and it must have belonged to a very wealthy family.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa23.jpg\" title=\"Mosaico villa affreschi\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>Mosaic of the &quot;oecus&quot; of Villa of the Frescoes</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\">There is not much remaining evidence of the frescoes after which the building is named, but the&#0160;<em>oecus</em>, the main hall, retains a fine geometric mosaic.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa25.jpg\" title=\"Vegetation near basilica civile\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>Vegetation near the Forum</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><em>In this marriage of ruins and springtime, the ruins have become stones again, and losing the polish imposed on them by men, they have reverted to nature.

It had three naves and an apse. It is called civil basilica to distinguish it from the basilica-shaped churches which were built on the western hill. It is dated late Ist or early IInd century AD and it served as a tribunal and as a covered meeting place.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa09.jpg\" title=\"Mosaic of the Slaves\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>Museum of Tipasa: Mosaic of the Slaves and a detail of it</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\">A fine floor mosaic was found in the apse of the Civil Basilica and after extensive restoration it was moved to a very small museum at the entrance to the archaeological site.

A modern politically oriented interpretation of the mosaic purpose suggests it was meant to humiliate the inhabitants of Tipasa of non-Roman origin. It might not have had such a general significance and perhaps it was made to celebrate a specific event. We know that&#0160;Emperor Antoninus Pius<a href=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Storia9.html#Antoninus\"></a>&#0160;ordered the construction of walls to protect Tipasa; the town was therefore threatened by something, possibly a raid by nomadic tribes who lived in the Sahara desert, similar to the&#0160;Garamantes in Libya. The mosaic therefore might have celebrated a fight in which an attack by these tribes was repelled or a successful punitive expedition in their territories.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa15.jpg\" title=\"Stelae\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>Museum of Tipasa: steles with a half moon surrounding the sun, a symbol of&#0160;Tanit, a Carthaginian goddess</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><em>A number of very interesting antiquities are collected together in the garden of the principal proprietor, Monsieur Trémaux.</em>&#0160;Murray 1878.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\">The small museum of the archaeological site originates from that of the Trémaux family who owned a large estate which included the ancient town.

The two cavalrymen shown above attacked the enemy by using a&#0160;<em>contus</em>, a very long lance which was wielded two-handed and that was widely used by the&#0160;armies of the Achaemenid and Sassanid&#0160;rulers of Persia.</p>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\"><img class=\"displayed\" height=\"451\" src=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Tipasa13.jpg\" title=\"Sarcofagi\" width=\"730\" /></p>\r\n<h2><em>Museum of Tipasa: sarcophagi decorated with: (above) a&#0160;sea thiasos<a href=\"https://www.romeartlover.it/Vasi02.htm#thiasos\"></a>, a procession of tritons and sea nymphs; (below) scenes from the chariot race between Pelops and Oenomaus</em></h2>\r\n<p class=\"stacco\">In the first sarcophagus the portrait of the dead inside a&#0160;<em>clipeus</em>&#0160;(round shield) was left unfinished so that it could be retouched to depict the actual person for whom the sarcophagus was bought.

We climbed in to find that the right rear tire had a slow leak in it. A couple of days ago it warned us of low tire pressure, so we filled it up. Today it was very low indeed, so it was clear we needed to do something about it.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>We headed to the park, and then called the rental company to ask what they’d like us to do. We were hoping they’d tell us to go to the nearest office and swap out our car for another. They didn’t. They did, however, offer to send out roadside assistance to fix the issue for us. They told us it would take 2 hours to get there, which is enough time for a good walk. We gave them our number and headed to the tea room for lunch.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/39781268400/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/919/39781268400_f52374c8f5.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>The <a href=\"http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/south-west/donerailewildlifepark/\">Doneraile Wildlife Park</a> is a very nice park to wander about:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/27719483568/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/876/27719483568_6c951e348e_z.jpg\" width=\"427\" height=\"640\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/39781253360/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/904/39781253360_df5c3490fd.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/41548817992/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/816/41548817992_f4804674f6.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>We even got a little cutesy:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/26721214107/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/873/26721214107_bbc841f1ee.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>And then Marisa became one with a tree:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/27719486218/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/824/27719486218_2c032a5611_z.jpg\" width=\"427\" height=\"640\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>After 2.5 hours we hadn’t heard from the rental company and no one showed up to fix our time.

We climbed in to find that the right rear tire had a slow leak in it. A couple of days ago it warned us of low tire pressure, so we filled it up. Today it was very low indeed, so it was clear we needed to do something about it.</p>\r\n\r\n<p>We headed to the park, and then called the rental company to ask what they’d like us to do. We were hoping they’d tell us to go to the nearest office and swap out our car for another. They didn’t. They did, however, offer to send out roadside assistance to fix the issue for us. They told us it would take 2 hours to get there, which is enough time for a good walk. We gave them our number and headed to the tea room for lunch.</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/39781268400/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/919/39781268400_f52374c8f5.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>The <a href=\"http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/south-west/donerailewildlifepark/\">Doneraile Wildlife Park</a> is a very nice park to wander about:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/27719483568/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/876/27719483568_6c951e348e_z.jpg\" width=\"427\" height=\"640\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/39781253360/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/904/39781253360_df5c3490fd.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/41548817992/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/816/41548817992_f4804674f6.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>We even got a little cutesy:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/26721214107/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/873/26721214107_bbc841f1ee.jpg\" width=\"500\" height=\"333\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>And then Marisa became one with a tree:</p>\r\n\r\n<p><a data-flickr-embed=\"true\"  href=\"https://www.flickr.com/photos/blankbaby/27719486218/in/album-72157668019526398/\" title=\"Untitled\"><img src=\"https://farm1.staticflickr.com/824/27719486218_2c032a5611_z.jpg\" width=\"427\" height=\"640\" alt=\"Untitled\"></a><script async src=\"//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"></script></p>\r\n\r\n<p>After 2.5 hours we hadn’t heard from the rental company and no one showed up to fix our time.

Any funds recovered are payable to the government alone.&#0160; That may be part of why the case has been filed under federal civil rights law, which allows both private plaintiff damages and has a fee shifting provision. This theory of the case has had its own challenges, of course, with the Supreme Court only recently reviving two consolidated putative class actions against government authorities from the rocky shoals of dismissal on the grounds of preemption.</p>",

Any funds recovered are payable to the government alone.&#0160; That may be part of why the case has been filed under federal civil rights law, which allows both private plaintiff damages and has a fee shifting provision. This theory of the case has had its own challenges, of course, with the Supreme Court only recently reviving two consolidated putative class actions against government authorities from the rocky shoals of dismissal on the grounds of preemption.</p>",

         "content": "<p>I&#39;ve been posting notices about my book-writing project on Sundays, as a way of encouraging others to keep up with their own large 2018 projects. A day late today.</p>\r\n<p>March was, to put it kindly, a setback for me. The Joni Cole Rule is &quot;touch it every day,&quot; meaning, whatever you&#39;re working on, at least open it / sit down to it / pick up the instrument or the camera—whatever &quot;touching it&quot; means for your project, do it every day. Not to apply any porcine lip-gloss, I failed at that in March. We had a big snowstorm with a loss of power, I went into the hospital with a heart-attack scare and came out with the rather bizarre (under the circumstances) condition placed on me to not type for a week or two, and I lost willpower and momentum.</p>\r\n<p>Then I found the last piece to the puzzle, which was to work on it first thing in the morning, when I have the most energy. My mentor said, &quot;I think your idea of hitting the writing hard when you’re the sharpest is a good idea, but the best thing about it is that you’re on a schedule. Scheduled writing is critical; otherwise, it’s too easy to let go. It’s like exercise. You gotta do it, but if you don’t have a schedule, you’ll start skipping.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>March was a month of skipping; April has been a month of regular work. It&#39;s been going great.</p>\r\n<p>Overall, I&#39;m really glad I didn&#39;t let the setbacks of March swamp the project. Could have happened.

         "renderedContent": "<p>I&#39;ve been posting notices about my book-writing project on Sundays, as a way of encouraging others to keep up with their own large 2018 projects. A day late today.</p>\r\n<p>March was, to put it kindly, a setback for me. The Joni Cole Rule is &quot;touch it every day,&quot; meaning, whatever you&#39;re working on, at least open it / sit down to it / pick up the instrument or the camera—whatever &quot;touching it&quot; means for your project, do it every day. Not to apply any porcine lip-gloss, I failed at that in March. We had a big snowstorm with a loss of power, I went into the hospital with a heart-attack scare and came out with the rather bizarre (under the circumstances) condition placed on me to not type for a week or two, and I lost willpower and momentum.</p>\r\n<p>Then I found the last piece to the puzzle, which was to work on it first thing in the morning, when I have the most energy. My mentor said, &quot;I think your idea of hitting the writing hard when you’re the sharpest is a good idea, but the best thing about it is that you’re on a schedule. Scheduled writing is critical; otherwise, it’s too easy to let go. It’s like exercise. You gotta do it, but if you don’t have a schedule, you’ll start skipping.&quot;</p>\r\n<p>March was a month of skipping; April has been a month of regular work. It&#39;s been going great.</p>\r\n<p>Overall, I&#39;m really glad I didn&#39;t let the setbacks of March swamp the project. Could have happened. I&#39;m now a little behind my original schedule, still, but catching up fast, and I&#39;m getting work done regularly—six days a week. (Monday, when I play pool with the older guys, is my day off now—from writing, and, usually, or this is the plan, from TOP.)</p>\r\n<p>Moral of the story: don&#39;t let setbacks sink the project. Keep working at the <em>method</em>, meaning the mechanics and the nuts-and-bolts of how you work, until you hit on the way of working that allows you to get the job done.

The text is &quot;Meet Butters a Petfinder adoptable Labrador Retriever dog | Waukesha, WI&quot; (top left). The original Petfinder page has gone 404. (He&#39;s actually a pit mix, though I would bet he&#39;s half Lab at least.) Butters was a difficult adoption—he suffered from anxiety, especially separation anxiety; coprophagia; leash reactivity; and DHD (doggie hyperactivity disorder. I just made that up. But he had it). He couldn&#39;t be crated (he would have an involuntary poop and get it all over himself), and it took a <em>year</em> to housetrain him. I probably walked a thousand miles while I was helping him get over leash reactivity, two patient and often challenging miles a day. He almost took me to the limits of my patience and fortitude...</p>\r\n<p>...Not quite, thank God. Now he&#39;s a lovely fellow with a gentle heart who has a few residual peccadilloes but nothing out of the ordinary. He leashes fine, no more coprophagia, he&#39;s potty trained at last, and he just looks sad and hangs his head when I leave the house, as opposed to what he used to do, which was to go crazy and have an unintended bowel movement. Things have greatly improved.&#0160; :-)</p>\r\n<p><em><strong>Clickbait</strong></em><br />I ran across this: &quot;<a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdiIr_wMjG8\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\">10 Photos That Flipped People&#39;s Lives Upside Down</a>.&quot; Kinda interesting, although also a little creepy. It&#39;s hard for me to observe pop culture today—it&#39;s impersonal and omnipotent, flighty, fickle and airheaded but also a remorseless, irresistable juggernaut capable of crushing people like insects.</p>\r\n<p>It occurred to me the other day that the future is probably going to be a neverending series of platform migrations. I like email myself, and I still center my own communication activities on it, but I distinctly remember thinking, in the 1990s, that one day it was going to become useless because commercialism would swamp it. That day is almost here—right now, less than <em>5%</em> of my email is relevant personal communication from people I&#39;m at least marginally interested in hearing from. And that&#39;s just counting the &quot;good&quot; emails, not including all the stuff that&#39;s sloughed off into my spam folder by my spam filters. For several years now I&#39;ve already been meeting people of my son&#39;s generation who don&#39;t use email at all, and recently I&#39;m having the experience of sending people emails who later tell me they don&#39;t get them because they never check their email any more.</p>\r\n<p>So we move on to various other platforms. Texting, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. We&#39;re now defined in part not just by how much of our lives are online, but on the particular platforms we happen to favor. I actually sent an email not long ago and the recipient replied, &quot;I don&#39;t read emails any more. Can you send that to me on Messenger?&quot; Uh, really? No, I can&#39;t, because I don&#39;t do Messenger.

Many people, doubtless including the intrepid &quot;Charlie from Top 10s&quot; who posted the &quot;10 Photos&quot; video I linked to above, are entrepreneurs trying to meet the need by crowdsourcing (hey, remember that word?) content for YouTube, and profit from it. But YouTube is already less compelling to me than it used to be...I used to helplessly watch one video after another as linked videos appeared in an unbreaking stream, but now each one is punctuated by an ad. Even though I can skip most of the ads, or half of them anyway, the interruption reminds me that I should be doing other things, and that breaks the spell and I turn it off.

But faced with a mere day&#39;s worth of the numberless legions of NYC pedestrians, that portion of his settled worldview experienced circuit overload. I know it&#39;s irrational, but it bugs me that I could look at photography online all day and yet still see so little of it that it would statistically be extremely close to &quot;none at all.&quot; It&#39;s not enough to be &quot;connected&quot;; I need some kind of shared culture, some kind of recognized culture, something I can keep up with and stay abreast of, to <em>feel</em> connected.</p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><em>Mike</em></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 10px;\">Original contents copyright 2018 by Michael C.

You married somebody who was born nearby because they were in your physical bubble, and you didn&#39;t usually move outside of that. With the arrival of mechanized transport, the bubbles of some people expanded, but most still hung close to home. At some point (I would say after World War II) the idea of physical bubbles began to break down, although many still continued to live in them. In my generation, in my hometown of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, most people still married people who were from Cedar Rapids, and often from the same high schools.

As physical bubbles continue to lose relevance, it&#39;s now become necessary for people to form their own (conceptual) bubbles.

While I have lots of interests, as most TOP members seem to, I actually resist adding many of those chunks to my bubble, because when you get too many chunks, you get frenzy.</p>\r\n<p>&quot;At one time, and not really all that long ago, a few adventurous people made great efforts to expand their bubbles—they&#39;d move from Cedar Rapids to New York, or Paris, looking for something they couldn&#39;t find at home.

Within me and my work, these things are merged, reflected and somehow become the unique being that is me and the unique form that is my art!   I see the world differently to many, I am constantly amazed by the beauty around me.  I like to express myself through art - I stamp, I journal, I colour and I create.  I love my life and the part that art plays in it.  I enjoy learning new things and teaching others new things - I love sharing the WOW moment.",

I&#39;ve been excited to participate in this collaboration because Lindy&#39;s has some wonderful products that work perfectly with stencils and they&#39;d been on my &quot;to-try&quot; list for ages!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>For my project, I decided to make a handmade mini art journal; I thought it would be a great way to showcase several fun techniques in a single project. Here you can see the outside of the book as well as the inside of the front cover and the first page:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c-350wi\" style=\"width: 350px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Inside---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c-400wi\" style=\"width: 400px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Inside---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Of course, I put together some tutorials as well so that you can see how I used the different products. I really loved the effects I was able to get as I experimented!</p>\r\n<p>I made the book using Indian cotton rag paper and bound it with the pamphlet stitch. In the past when I&#39;ve used this binding I&#39;ve had lots of requests for a tutorial, so this time I took pictures of the process so that you can see how to bind your own book. It&#39;s fast and easy!</p>\r\n<p>To start, I took some very heavy-weight cotton rag paper (640 gsm, but you could also use chipboard) and measured and then folded so I&#39;d have creases for my &quot;cut&quot; lines. (I took a class at SAIC in Chicago from a printmaker who impressed upon us that one should&#0160;<em>never</em> cut the papers... you always tear them with a bone folder. Sometimes I ignore that advice, but because the paper had deckled edges, I tore so that it would match all the way around.)</p>\r\n<p>I left it a few inches longer than I wanted the book to be so that I could fold up the flap to make pockets on the inside covers. Then I tore and folded five sheets of paper to make my book block, making sure to crease each one with my bone folder. (I don&#39;t generally like to do more than five sheets in a signature, especially with this kind of binding and the thickness of the paper I used - otherwise it doesn&#39;t lay as flat as I want it.)</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Next, I made a jig - I just took scrap paper and cut it to the height of my book pages, folded it in half, and marked where the holes were going to be. This is the template you use to make sure that your holes are always in the same place. Technically you don&#39;t really need to do this with a single signature like this, but force of habit, I guess! I nested the folded papers, lined up the jig inside, and used my awl to poke the holes. (A traditional pamphlet binding has an odd number of holes, and this one just had three.) I generally place the awl and then let the pages fall so they&#39;re laying over my hand before pushing it through; this helps ensure that the tip of the awl will come out in the crease... if you poke the holes with the pages open, it&#39;s more likely that the awl will come out to one side of the crease instead. (Hopefully that makes sense!)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Then it was time to start binding. I took waxed linen thread and cut the length to about 2-1/2&quot; to 3 times the height of my book and then threaded it onto a tapestry needle. For this method, I start in the center hole and stitch from the outside in, leaving a tail of about 3-4&quot; hanging out of the hole. (Bottom-right photo above.)</p>\r\n<p>Stitch 2, go from the inside out (top left photo below,) then on the outside, bring your needle across to the other hole and go back inside (top-right photo below.)</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-5-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-5-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Finally, on the inside you go back out through the center hole (bottom-left above,) and then tie it off on the outside... this way you don&#39;t have any gaps in the thread on the inside or the outside so it looks nice and clean. That&#39;s all there is to making your own art journal with a pamphlet stitch... I did say it was easy, right?</p>\r\n<p>Now, on to the techniques with stencils, powders, and sprays!</p>\r\n<p>For the covers, I used one of my favorite techniques - embossing powder resist. To do this, I took my <a href=\"http://www.stencilgirlproducts.com/stencil-art-deco-peacock-feathers-gwen-lafleur-p/s576.htm\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Art Deco Peacock Feathers Stencil by Gwen Lafleur\">Art Deco Peacock Feathers stencil</a> and stenciled with clear embossing ink all across the covers (the stencil repeats so you get a seamless pattern!) Then I heat embossed with Lindy&#39;s <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/collections/embossing-powder/products/midnight-teal\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Midnight Teal Embossing Powder - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Midnight Teal embossing powder</a>. Then I used the <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/products/dark-chocolate-truffle?variant=689763450896\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Dark Chocolate Truffle shimmer spray - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Dark Chocolate Truffle shimmer spray</a> with a dauber cap to add color in spots around the covers... the melted embossing powder will naturally resist the dye so you only stain the paper.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961badc970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961badc970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961badc970b-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>I followed up by spritzing with <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/products/mystic-malachite?variant=689761189904\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Mystic Malachite Vintage Shimmer Spray - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Mystic Malachite vintage spray</a>, and then sprinkled some powder from the <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/collections/magical-shakers/products/oktoberfest-orange\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Oktoberfest Orange Magical Shaker - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Oktoberfest Orange Magical Shaker</a> and spritzed that with water to activate it. I added enough water that it would spread, but not so much that it would completely dissolve all of the powder - I wanted a bit of texture on the surface.</p>\r\n<p>When everything was dry, I sprayed the cover with Krylon Crystal Clear acrylic coating and left it to dry overnight. This sealed anything that was water reactive so that I could work on top with wet mediums if I wanted to add more layers, and also ensured that great texture from the Magical Shaker wouldn&#39;t rub off.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>I added some <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/washi-tape.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Washi Tape - Gwen Lafleur Studios\">washi tape</a> on the spine and a bit on the edges for a decorative touch, and the covers were done!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>While I was in the groove, I decided to go ahead and start working on the inside pages of the book. I thought it would be fun to add some stitching and maybe custom dye my thread while I was at it! I started that step first and poured some of the Buccaneer Bay Blue vintage spray into a small paper cup, then added a few yards of regular 6-strand white DMC embroidery floss. I made sure it was totally submerged, then let it soak for a bit. After the color was strong enough, I pulled out the dyed thread and spread it on a paper towel, then used my <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/collections/magical-shakers/products/guten-tag-teal\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Guten Tag Teal magical shaker - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Guten Tag Teal magical shaker</a> to get a little more color in spots... I spritzed that with water to activate it.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe3dc970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Embroidering-with-Stencils-and-Lindy&#39;s---Thread-Dying-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe3dc970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe3dc970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Embroidering-with-Stencils-and-Lindy&#39;s---Thread-Dying-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Voilà! Custom dyed thread! With that done, I was ready to prep the shape I was going to embroider, so I took out my <a href=\"http://www.stencilgirlproducts.com/stencil-ornamental-embroidery-gwen-lafleur-p/m097.htm\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Ornamental Embroidery stencil by Gwen Lafleur\">Ornamental Embroidery stencil</a> and used the <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/products/mystic-malachite?variant=689761189904\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Mystic Malachite vintage spray - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Mystic Malachite vintage spray</a>&#0160;to get the pattern onto the paper.

There was no way I was throwing that out... it was too cool looking! So I took a large shipping tag (the perfect size for the pocket on the inside of my cover,) and used some matte medium to adhere the paper towel to the tag.

I&#39;ve been excited to participate in this collaboration because Lindy&#39;s has some wonderful products that work perfectly with stencils and they&#39;d been on my &quot;to-try&quot; list for ages!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>For my project, I decided to make a handmade mini art journal; I thought it would be a great way to showcase several fun techniques in a single project. Here you can see the outside of the book as well as the inside of the front cover and the first page:</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb7c970c-350wi\" style=\"width: 350px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>&#0160; <a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Inside---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebdb83970c-400wi\" style=\"width: 400px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Inside---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Of course, I put together some tutorials as well so that you can see how I used the different products. I really loved the effects I was able to get as I experimented!</p>\r\n<p>I made the book using Indian cotton rag paper and bound it with the pamphlet stitch. In the past when I&#39;ve used this binding I&#39;ve had lots of requests for a tutorial, so this time I took pictures of the process so that you can see how to bind your own book. It&#39;s fast and easy!</p>\r\n<p>To start, I took some very heavy-weight cotton rag paper (640 gsm, but you could also use chipboard) and measured and then folded so I&#39;d have creases for my &quot;cut&quot; lines. (I took a class at SAIC in Chicago from a printmaker who impressed upon us that one should&#0160;<em>never</em> cut the papers... you always tear them with a bone folder. Sometimes I ignore that advice, but because the paper had deckled edges, I tore so that it would match all the way around.)</p>\r\n<p>I left it a few inches longer than I wanted the book to be so that I could fold up the flap to make pockets on the inside covers. Then I tore and folded five sheets of paper to make my book block, making sure to crease each one with my bone folder. (I don&#39;t generally like to do more than five sheets in a signature, especially with this kind of binding and the thickness of the paper I used - otherwise it doesn&#39;t lay as flat as I want it.)</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b7c961b6fc970b-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-1-4---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Next, I made a jig - I just took scrap paper and cut it to the height of my book pages, folded it in half, and marked where the holes were going to be. This is the template you use to make sure that your holes are always in the same place. Technically you don&#39;t really need to do this with a single signature like this, but force of habit, I guess! I nested the folded papers, lined up the jig inside, and used my awl to poke the holes. (A traditional pamphlet binding has an odd number of holes, and this one just had three.) I generally place the awl and then let the pages fall so they&#39;re laying over my hand before pushing it through; this helps ensure that the tip of the awl will come out in the crease... if you poke the holes with the pages open, it&#39;s more likely that the awl will come out to one side of the crease instead. (Hopefully that makes sense!)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Then it was time to start binding. I took waxed linen thread and cut the length to about 2-1/2&quot; to 3 times the height of my book and then threaded it onto a tapestry needle. For this method, I start in the center hole and stitch from the outside in, leaving a tail of about 3-4&quot; hanging out of the hole. (Bottom-right photo above.)</p>\r\n<p>Stitch 2, go from the inside out (top left photo below,) then on the outside, bring your needle across to the other hole and go back inside (top-right photo below.)</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-5-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01bb0a04c13b970d-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Pamphlet-Bound-Art-Journal-Step-5-8---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>Finally, on the inside you go back out through the center hole (bottom-left above,) and then tie it off on the outside... this way you don&#39;t have any gaps in the thread on the inside or the outside so it looks nice and clean.

I did say it was easy, right?</p>\r\n<p>Now, on to the techniques with stencils, powders, and sprays!</p>\r\n<p>For the covers, I used one of my favorite techniques - embossing powder resist. To do this, I took my <a href=\"http://www.stencilgirlproducts.com/stencil-art-deco-peacock-feathers-gwen-lafleur-p/s576.htm\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Art Deco Peacock Feathers Stencil by Gwen Lafleur\">Art Deco Peacock Feathers stencil</a> and stenciled with clear embossing ink all across the covers (the stencil repeats so you get a seamless pattern!)

I added enough water that it would spread, but not so much that it would completely dissolve all of the powder - I wanted a bit of texture on the surface.</p>\r\n<p>When everything was dry, I sprayed the cover with Krylon Crystal Clear acrylic coating and left it to dry overnight. This sealed anything that was water reactive so that I could work on top with wet mediums if I wanted to add more layers, and also ensured that great texture from the Magical Shaker wouldn&#39;t rub off.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe060970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---EP-Resist-Step-5---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>I added some <a href=\"https://www.gwenlafleur.com/washi-tape.html\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Washi Tape - Gwen Lafleur Studios\">washi tape</a> on the spine and a bit on the edges for a decorative touch, and the covers were done!</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\"><img alt=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---Gwen-Lafleur\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c img-responsive\" src=\"http://gwenyth.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341ceb7653ef01b8d2ebe35b970c-500wi\" style=\"width: 465px; display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;\" title=\"Stenciled-and-Sprayed-Mini-Art-Journal-Covers---Gwen-Lafleur\" /></a></p>\r\n<p>While I was in the groove, I decided to go ahead and start working on the inside pages of the book.

I started that step first and poured some of the Buccaneer Bay Blue vintage spray into a small paper cup, then added a few yards of regular 6-strand white DMC embroidery floss. I made sure it was totally submerged, then let it soak for a bit. After the color was strong enough, I pulled out the dyed thread and spread it on a paper towel, then used my <a href=\"https://www.lindysgang.com/collections/magical-shakers/products/guten-tag-teal\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\" target=\"_blank\" title=\"Guten Tag Teal magical shaker - Lindy&#39;s Stamp Gang\">Guten Tag Teal magical shaker</a> to get a little more color in spots...
