I have been absolutely bursting to write this all day today! This morning I was rushing to get ready for work when the postie arrived at 6.45am with my parcel! I was already running late but just couldn’t contain myself. I opened the parcel at the speed of sound, almost wept with joy when I saw the contents and then had to shoot off to work.
I have now attempted to reassemble the parcel so that I can do a reveal. It reminds me of the British king who was beheaded and buried before the Court realized that they did not have a portrait of him. They then had to dig him up, put his head back on and paint his portrait afterwards. This was a MUCH happier occasion though…
Now for the next thing—– I was not sure how this was going to turn out but it ended up brilliantly. I had seen these in Akiko’s shop and loved them. I was not sure it would work for the purpose I had in mind but it did it did it did!
I just have to say thank you to Akiko for this beautiful binder. She promised to save me a piece of this leather a year ago and make me a binder with it when she had time. And she kept her promise. She is an absolute sweetheart to deal with and her packaging, presentation, communication and delivery are outstanding.
