Food & Drinks at the Library!

The library kiosk features a collection of members' books created around the topic: Food and Drink. These yummy books can be seen behind the main desk on the first floor of the Humboldt County Library. Most of these books are a result of our monthly exchanges and are in the personal library of many of our local members. Thanks to Bonnie for another great theme and for collecting and displaying the books.

May Workshop


 SHOW & TELL & PLAY!
Plan to join us for our Spring Frolic meeting as we hear from members who attended the Newport Paper Arts Festival (NPAF). They will bring what they made in their classes and share them along with their experiences. New techniques, hints, and interesting stories are sure to be entertaining as well as informative.

Connie Stewart will also bring some of her large collection of gadgets to the meeting. Says Connie, "I’ve always had this terrible habit of buying the latest gadget, but when it comes to bookmaking and paper crafting there are so many out there that you can go broke in a hurry. So I thought I would share with you some of my favorite tools including my CRICUT (for die cutting), my CUTTLEBUG (for embossing) and my CROPADILE (for placing eyelets and snaps). There will be plenty of time for each of us to play with each tool."
Bring the following materials that you have on hand (please don’t buy anything. Connie will bring extra supplies):
• Assorted 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock
• Eyelets or snaps
• Double-sided tape or PVA, brush and wastepaper
• Bone folder
• X-Acto knife (or craft knife of your choice)
• Cutting mat
• Metal ruler
