Hi Friends! I’m really excited about my Bookmaking session at I Teach K this year. I haven’t done a make and take in a long time. I’m busy getting 100 plus packets together. There is no room left in my den! Now I have to figure out do I ship it all or buy another suitcase?

If you are attending all you need to pack is scissors, markers, glue, stapler and a hole punch. I’ll supply the rest!
