I've made some more books of good things, you can find them in the shop now. A little something else will be there tomorrow too. It's almost strange how much I still enjoy making them even though I've made almost hundreds of these in this format. This little book was earlier more of a traditional binding but all the fiddly parts of making a tiny book were starting to get on my nerves after some years. Changing the format to matchbook style put the fun back to making these, and at least to me the matchbook format is the most portable (as in "toss in your bag and hope its survives in one piece" portable) one that comes to mind. Book of good things is like a mini first-aid kit for the days when you're under the weather.
I've always loved making lists, but lately most of them have been to-do lists and they're not too loveable. Words are comforting, especially when they don't mean you're running behind your imaginary deadlines.
a small list of things that make nice sounds
leaves (falling from trees, in trees, or under your feet in a cold morning)
the park gate opening at night
the lever of my bookbinding press
pouring water from a large jug into a tall glass
a neighbor washing her dishes late in the evening when the rest of the house is quiet (I used to get annoyed, but I now like it, she sometimes sings a little too)
sitting in the dark (there is a special sound you can only then hear)
Do you write lists? What kind of words do you like? What makes a nice sound?
