I did a video a while back which is outdated, but I thought it would be super cool to show you the first few shots of the book before I started writing in it as well as give you all an idea of what I’ve done with it so far. I blessed my book Samhain just gone and it was a simple ritual, but it was very meaningful in more than one way as it was hand-made by one of my best friends, so it was extra special =] (thanks hun!)
A few weeks after I got her (the book… I don’t know how or why I think of it as a she…) I started checking my list of ‘what pages, where and when’ sheet, which was a guide on how I was going to set out its layout, I started collecting the pens together and began to inscribe like crazy. Drawing, sticking in small pictures and writing spells, poems and history pages has really altered her original look; she has become personal. Another thing I noticed only recently was her naming. I did have a name for her and forgot, but I feel strongly in calling her Aldus… I know, it’s a blokes name but it fits! Let that word roll on your tongue! I hope to take a few more pictures or show you my books so far. I’ve seen some beautiful books, especially TheWorstWitch13’s book, how lush! I like being inspired, by other books and historical art, tattoo art and lots of filigree and skulls.
Anyhoo, I won’t go on to much, just enjoy the early pictures and then I’ll sort something ASAP for the current shots.

Ps. I posted the video in an entry back in Aug or July… entitled Thanxxx Jack? Not sure… hehe!
