In 2009, I started to write down all of the books that I read throughout the year. I wanted to write them down because I would frequently go to the library and not remember if I had read a book or not (and also because I just love writing lists!) At the end of the year it really bothered me that I had only managed to finish four books. I really love reading, I just don't find the time to do it as much as I would like to. I made a scrapbook page about the four books I had read with the very first Studio Calico kit that I had purchased - January 2010.
I decided to make a similar layout for 2010 and I used the January 2011 kit for this one. I did manage to read a few more books in 2010.
The bookshelf stamp that came with the kit could not have been more perfect for my page! I like the way this corner of the page turned out. I actually used some of the packaging from a package of Studio Calico Notions - the colors just matched so perfectly with the rest of the page I couldn't resist.
I've started on my first book for 2011 - Heat by Bill Buford. My husband's cousin sent as the book as a gift after we had dinner with her and her boyfriend at Mario Batali's restaurant in Los Angeles - Osteria Mozza. I'd love recommendations for my next book if anyone has read anything great lately.
Have a great day everyone!
