Would you like to see more tutorials? I create as many as I can, with limited supplies, but in between my own tutorials do check out my Tutorials page, the tab is at the top of the blog. There I have collected together my own tutorials, so a handy reference if you want to quickly search for a particular tutorial.
Also on the Tutorial page, are listed many tutorials by other people. When I did a search for bookbinding on You Tube, many thousands of films came up. As anyone who has searched You Tube, will know, the films can be quite a mixed bag of results. So I have selected my favorites and added direct links to the films and also to their authors channels. There were far too many to list in the side bar, at the side of the blog, so I dedicated a page to them. This allows for a more detailed listing.
Please follow the link below for a great selection of tutorials:
When I created this blog some time ago, the one thing I really hoped that it could become, is a reference tool for people with similar interests to me. When I started bookbinding, it took a long time to discover resources. Be that materials, useful books, places to go to learn etc. Over time I have gathered a whole host of links to websites for supplies, videos, inspiration and more.
Not Just bookbinding
Have you noticed that the subjects bounce around on this blog. I think I am a bit of a bumble bee, I get all excited about a subject and go all out for it. Then another new technique comes along and I go and explore that.
I started as a paper crafter, making cards and ATCs and I still make these. After being addicted to rubber stamping, came book binding.
There is just so much to discover with whatever style you like. It’s great to still be learning and trying new things, especially when you find you can combine skills learnt earlier, into your current passion.
It’s All About the Journey
As the sub title of the blog suggests, it’s all about the journey. Be open to learning new things and you will be amazed at the new possibilities each technique brings you. Explore, you don’t have to leave home to explore, thanks to the internet. It doesn’t have to cost you loads of money to try new things. Check out your local library, you can pick up all sorts of books on new subjects there. If you want to try something new, but don’t want a big investment in tools and equipment try taking a class.
Mobility problems don’t have to be a barrier either :) There are plenty of excellent on-line classes. With online stores you can get your supplies for class, without leaving your home. Some online classes are ongoing, so you can work at your own pace, at times that suit your schedule.
Why wait till the new year to try something different? Take a chance, a leap of faith, whole new worlds open up for you, when you take the first step. Explore and enjoy the journey.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
