Lots of exciting stuff going on with the Book of Dreams project. It looks like Cassondra is going to join us (see interview below) and will be posting pictures of her progress as we go. Very exciting! There's been lots of new people joining in. It's never to late to start! I will keep adding names to the blogroll on the sidebar with participants. I will also keep adding inspiration links.
I think I will be posting quite a bit, as I have the last few days, as we all gather our books, supplies and other goodies that we'll be working with. So you may want to check in daily if you can, or you can always scroll down for previous posts. I'm certaining not advocating spending a lot of money on this project, but I thought I'd share some links of web sites that sell vintage images, paper, metal items, envelopes and many other materials that may be useful for your altered book project. If you know of others, please let me know. I plan to go to some estate sales this weekend to try to hunt down some unusal treasures to use in my book. It's always fun to find vintage items that seem to have a story to tell, like this wonderful collection of zippers I found at an estate sale once. What in the world am I going to do with them?

Also- here is a link from Deborah for a comprehensive tutorial on bookbinding and from Fiona, an altered book forum. We're off to a great start! I will be posting in the next fews days on ways you can prep your book and as promised, I will post our first technique next Wednesday.
