My love for bookbinding

After all the craziness to visit all the participating blogs of OWOH (and speaking of wich, I won 3 giveaways! XD) we back to "normality."
This time I want to share with you one of my many passions: bookbinding.

Después de toda la locura de visitar a todos los blogs participantes de OWOH (y hablando de eso, gané 3 regalos! XD ) volvemos a la "normalidad".
Esta vez quiero compartir con ustedes una de mis muchas pasiones: la encuadernación.


since long time ago, I liked to buy notebooks for writing or drawing. I have bought many varieties and sizes. I simply love these things! I have one for dreams, one for travels, one for thoughts and another for my projects (yeah, I know, I'm a freak -_-u)

Desde hace mucho tiempo, me ha gustado comprar libretas para escribir o dibujar. He comprado muchas variedades y tamaños. Simplemente me encantan estas cosas!! Tengo una para mis sueños, una para viajes, una para pensamientos y otra para mis proyectos (si, lo se, soy un "freak" -_-u)


Part of my current journal / Parte de mi diario actual

One day I saw a japanese bookbinding course and it caught my attention. I took it and I loved it! Since then I kept taking courses and I have already learned several things but I'm still a rookie.
These are bookbindings I made in my current course:

Un día ví un curso de encuadernación japonesa y me llamó la atención. Lo tomé y me encantó! desde entonces seguí tomando cursos y ya he aprendido algunas cosillas pero sigo siendo una novata.
Estas son unas encuadernaciones que hice en mi curso actual:

I love making notebooks! but sometimes I have no money for materials and I haven't thought of make money with this hobby. I keep learning more and I wanna try new things, especially after seeing such beautiful things in other blogs!

Me encanta hacer libretas! pero a veces no tengo dinero para materiales y no he pensado en lucrar con este pasatiempo. Sigo aprendiendo más y quiero probar nuevas cosas, especialmente después de ver cosas tan hermosas en otros blogs!

Of course I want to share the things I learned with you, but be patient! because is a loooong subject. n_n

Por supuesto quiero compartir las cosas que aprendí con ustedes, pero sean pacientes! por que es un tema muuuuy largo. n_n

They are very good :-) It is great to learn a new craft. I took a paper sculpture class a few years ago and enjoyed it very much.

I too love to write in journals. I have several. Your bindings are beautiful. Also, I just wanted to let you know I haven't gotten a chance to ship your OWOH gift off yet. I've been sick and then it's been raining. But, I will have it in the mail on it's way to you by Thursday.
