One of the artists had mentioned to me that she had a bunch of books on creating books and journals that she was culling and did I wish them. Of course I did. Suzan brought them to the show pickup. In exchange for the books I asked Suzan what would be a fair trade. We decided that I would design a journal to house ten or so 4 x 6 works that she had done but wanted to display somehow.
I wanted to create a journal to honor her works. So that very late afternoon I started thinking and doing mock ups of possilbe journals to fit the criteria. Suzan wanted an accordion and I had suggested pockets. Making pockets on two sides was the challenge. I successfully came up with a ten pocket accordion journal (pockets on both sides) which is now housing many postcards that I have received in the mail over the last few years. Soon Suzan and I will get together at her studio for instruction on how to create said journal. Too much fun! It was so much fun I am going to make a second one today! :-)
