"Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do."
I printed out the quotation on a hand-torn 24" long sheet of Arches Rive art paper (wonderful paper), then folded it and glued it into covered boards. The hardest thing was trying to figure out how to get my printer to print a sheet 24" x 3 1/8". But now I know and next time it will be easier! Cool thing... I learn something new on just about every book I make.
One of the reasons I wanted to laugh today was because of something Allen said to me. He's a morning person. I most definitely am not. He goes to bed early. I usually stay up late and make my daily book after he is asleep. Then I leave it on the table for him to look at in the morning. Today he was talking about how there is always a surprise and a discovery for him in the morning. Then he added, "I'm like a farmer with one hen, who lays a single egg every night and leaves it in the nest for me to find."
Or, I added, like someone with the cat who leaves a dead mouse on the floor as a "gift."
Anyway... fun little accordion book.
