I’ve moved to a new apartment for example, and — perhaps somewhat more important in the context of this post — I’ve bought nine new (beautiful) books! My bookshelf has never looked prettier. … Continue reading

Welcome back to Things My Past Self Would Kill Me For Doing! If you’ve seen my previous Defacing-posts (you can find my last one here), you know 2017 was the year I got a new hobby: personalizing my own books (gasp!).

Anyway, I’ve been in a musical-y mood lately (more than usual), and thought I’d give this a try. … Continue reading

For My Lady Jane, though, I wanted to do something about the interior. More precisely, the chapter headers. Now, I actually quite … Continue reading
