Free Books!

Yes, really. No catch at all.

I’m setting up a bookshelf – all books are free, mostly pre-loved, already read books. Those of you that know me are already aware that i’m a lifelong bookworm 🙂

I heard about Bookcrossing in a book I read earlier this year and though it sounded like a great idea. Since then i’ve been labelling all the books that I pass along to people and thought that I would set up an Official Bookcrossing Zone while i’m open during the summer.

So, if you are on holiday in the Outer Hebrides and the weather is getting you down and you need some fresh reading material drop by and have a look to see if anything suits you.

Oh, and I also sell handmade bookmarks 😉

Waiting for Puffins….

People are always asking me for Puffin photos – my collection was meagre so I decided late last year that in 2018 I would make a concerted effort to get some good photos of them. So, after visiting one of the off-shore, uninhabited islands recently I was  able to get some great Puffin shots. I’ve just sent my favourite image of the bunch off to the printers to be made into a square greeting card, hopefully they should arrive here very soon! Puffins are so cute! I took hundreds of shots.

Once I receive the order the cards will be on sale here online and at a variety of retail outlets for £2.50 which includes an envelope.

Making bookmarks…

Had a lovely time in my studio this afternoon making up some mixed media bookmarks – I’ve been having trouble keeping up with demand for these, with this little lot that will mean i’ve made 90 so far this year – and every single one different. They are now all packaged up and will be on the shelf at the Uist Craft Producers shop at Kildonan, South Uist tomorrow. £3 each which includes and envelope 🙂

Confession time: Sometimes I like one so much I keep it for myself, I have a wee collection dotted around the house.
