Find out more about KIOS HERE

The prompt for KIOS today is:

What's the weather like where you live today?

It was unseasonable warm got up in the 60s, and it was sunny all day, despite the weather app on my phone insisting that there were supposed to be scattered showers.  I think I'd like to be a weather girl, because it's the only job I can think of where you can be wrong more than half the time and still not get fired.  

It's supposed to rain the rest of the week, but according to my phone (aka the LIAR) it's going to be 70 here tomorrow.  If that is true, I'm going to be annoyed, because it's DECEMBER!  That should mean sweater weather, not sweaty weather!  I want cold weather...waa!!!

Also in the forecast is creativity...but that's pretty much every day for me...

I'm still working on the bunny page from a couple days ago, but I did make this little washi tape bound book:

I have no idea what I'm going to use this for...but it was easy to make...

I made it out of a piece of  9x12 watercolor paper that I had collaged some bits of paper on, then stamped over...

I don't know what the deal was with the color's not my usual fare, but it seems very cheerful, doesn't it?

I like the taped binding.  I've not done it before, and it was so simple that I may have to make up some more!  I love washi tape, but, egads, I wish it was stickier.  I cheated and used matte medium to glue the washi to the pages so that it would actually stick.  And I went over the whole book with clear gesso when I was done with it, just for added stability.  All in all, a cute and easy little project.

I'm so happy it was a short prompt today!  I spent FOREVER with yesterday's prompt (because I am a blabber mouth...) and didn't get to do hardly any I'm chomping at the bit tonight.  

I'm off to work on the bunny page...maybe I'll have that done by tomorrow and be able to share it with you!  Till then, my friends...


  1. Wow, this is brilliant -- I never thought of using washi tape for binding!!!! So gonna try that... Was it sunny with that 60 degrees at all? I'd take some of that :) It was like 27 degrees here today, but not much sun...kinda grey. I miss the sun so much. Loving my light therapy box this winter so far :)

  2. Charming cheerful book indeed and using washi tape was very clever! Glad you got a chance to create today, and I'll keep my fingers crossed you can pull those sweaters out soon.


I'd love to hear from you!
