    You have such a warm presence in the video. Great to see your work, too-love your sketchbook. I’m glad Creating Handmade Books has been helpful. I’ve started a blog to supplement the new instructional book that’s coming out January 2011: makinghandmadebooks.blogspot.com. Warm regards, Alisa Golden

      Sure thing Sean, though with two uber talented and creative parents in the house, I doubt there is any shortage of tricks đŸ˜‰ Hope you guys are well up there!
