The Internet Hypnotized Me

Does this happen to you?  All I remember is that I logged on to catch up on email and favorite blogs, read some postings from yahoo group digests I get... you know, the normal stuff.  One of the digest emails had a link to somewhere.  That had a link to a You Tube video that I clicked on.  That video didn't interest me, but the videos listed to the right had another one that looked interesting.  And the next thing I knew, I was off making a mini book.

It's been a while since I made a "meander book".  And I had never seen one from a sheet of 12 x 12 scrapbook paper.  But when you think about, that's a great size for a meander book.  I used a double sided sheet and had it whipped out in no time - scoring, cutting, and folding.

I have not embellished it yet, but maybe I'll use these cool vintage playing cards that Gaye gave me.  I think Girtie Giggle and Willie Whistle would like to live in this book.

I have to go catch up on email now.  Wish me luck as I once again try to enter that black hole.

P.S. - Instructional video on the meander book is here.  It makes a nice 3 x 3-inch book.

Boy you did go on a tangent. I figured you'd go home and start a business card book. Haaaaaaaaaa! You're too funny and I can definitely identify.

Exactly! But at least you ACT on things when they strike your fancy.

I've never made a "meander book" but I like it, I like it! I trust Girtie and Willie will be very happy in their new digs. I love it when you go off on a tangent!
