Yet another little book

I've been making inchies books like crazy! This one is actually 1.5'' x 15". I cut out a bunch of little watercolor squares this size with my cricut, then did the same thing to cut the bases out of cereal box. Keeps 'em nice and substantial!
This page is my favorite, even though the octopus only has 6 legs. Who's got room for 8 legs, really? I need to start experimenting with drawing other little animals... I tend to fall back on the tentacled creatures and birds!
And the book unassembled. I think the next one I make will bind at the tops, kind of like a calendar... Or I'll just make a mini-calendar! That would be fun. Happy Saturday!

(Oh, and a side note for the awesome folks who started doing the Swagbucks thing to get some free stuff: The best way to get the stuff you want is to redeem your points for giftcards. You can save em up, then just order whatever from It takes a little while to accrue points, but that's how I got my tablet. And thanks for signing up! You're gonna really like it! Oh and, I don't really usually like to link to stuff here, because I think you guys pretty much just want to see crafts, but I've really gotten a kick out of this Swagbucks site, so I wanted to share the free goodness :) So don't worry, I won't start... like... spamming you guys.)
