Mini book on WOYWW 339

My goodness! It has been ages since my last post here. Still having a lot of health issues I had no energy for blogging. But I missed my WOYWW community so much I just had to do this blog and show you, what I am doing right now.


It is Wednesday again and time for WOYWW – where we visit our workspaces around the world. Thanks to our wonderful host Julia Dunnit this is possible without leaving the nice warm house and the steaming cuppa on the desk! What you also see on my desk are fragments of my mini journal, I started like 2 weeks ago. It is a super format for me at the moment, as I can quickly finish one of the little pages or just leave it as a nice background ready for finishing touches or a little drawing or painting. Also I can use my lovely Rubberdance stamps on them for a quick result and also they make rich backgrounds. But I don´t have to tell you about using stamps – you are the pros and know all about it!!!

Some great artists are doing mini books, which really inspired me –  Orly Avinery and Roxanne Coble. I am gathering pages at the moment and now have to think about the binding and the cover. I believe a more casual binding would be the right one for me (you know I am the queen of imperfection), like, let´s say, a personalized coptic stitch. I mean personalized, because I never did it before and it might not look like the proper Coptic stitch, when I am done. Well, maybe you are experienced in book binding and have an advice for me, on what technique might be best for tiny books.

Here are the pages I finished so far. I must say, for me it is kind of a therapy. A little playground, where I can try out ideas, techniques, colour combinations – what ever. And I can always go back and add what I feel it has to be done…

I will share the finished product with cover and all, I hope next week. Now off you go to visit all the other desks and enjoy and get inspired. Hope to see you soon, dear friends.

  1. Love your little pages, looking forward to seeing what they become. I’ve never bound a book from separate pages, but I’m sure there are lots of tutorials out there!
    Happy woyww 🙂

  2. Wow, your pages are beautiful so far – I really look forward to seeing the mini book. Good luck with the book binding -I have recently invested in a small beginners kit with the intention of having a go – it’s sitting on the windowsill looking at me at the moment – perhaps in the new year!! I am sorry you are having health problems and I hope you are beginning to feel better now.
    Thanks so much for stopping by my desk earlier,

  3. It’s so nice to see you back Gabriele! Last time you were on WOYWW was upon my return back in September. I remember because you inspired me to come back! Love the pages of your minibook! There’s so many of them! Looking forward to seeing your bound journal. Thanks for visiting earlier!

  4. Nice to see you back again, Gabriele, and sorry to hear you have also been wrestling with health issues recently. This is the first week I’ve been on WOYWW for some time, too. Lovely mini book pages! Thank you for your lovely comment, and as soon as I feel my mojo stirring I will probably start with something small, as you suggest.

    Happy WOYWW,
