It’s my birthday! Faig anys! – GIVEAWAY/SORTEIG!

Doncs si, el dimecres 17 em ficare un altre any a la butxaca! Recordo quan vaig fer els 11 i els 22, ara toca 33! m’agrada quan repetim xifres… tinc un dilema al cap, no se si celebrar-ho amb una mini festa o no… per una part m’agrada tenir gent a casa i fer una festa, pero si soc jo el centre d’atencio ja no m’agrada tant… Qui va ser que va dir: “si vols ser el centre d’atencio en una festa, no hi vagis!” Elisabeth Taylor???
No se que fare…

Well yes, I’ll be a year older on Wednesday 17th! I remember when I turned 11 and 22, so now it’s 33! yeah! I like when you get the same digits… I’m still deciding whether to celebrate it with a party or not. I like having people at home and throw a party, but not when I’m the centre of attention… Who said “if you want to be the centre of attention in a party, just don’t go”, Elisabeth Taylor???
Argh… I don’t know what I’ll do yet…

De totes maneres aqui si que ho celebrare amb un sorteig, per que no? Com sabeu he trobat una altra aficio,  enquadernar llibres, i aquest divendres vam anar a veure la paradeta de llibres de l’Una. No vaig marxar amb les mans buides i aqui podeu veure el que podeu tenir a les vostres amb una mica de sort.

Anyway, I will celebrate here all right! You know I’ve discovered bookbinding recently, don’t you? Well we went to the farmer’s market on Friday to see Una at her stand. Of course I didn’t leave with empty hands! So here you can see what you can have in your hands with a bit of luck.

5″x7″ book with 76 pages 
llibre de 12.5×17.5 cm amb 76 pagines

3″x4″ book with 62 pages
llibre de 7.5x10cm, de 62 pagines

M’encanten els llibres i llibretetes, en tinc un fotime! Una per escriure coses que no vull oblidar, des d’una recepta fins el nom d’un llibre, una pel.licula, una adrec,a, alguna cosa que he llegit i m’ha agradat… En tinc un altre per escriure totes les frases divertides que comenc,a a dir la Hana. Una altra on estic escrivint com va creixent des que va neixer, vaig escriure un durant tot l’embaras… 
en tinc molts per a tot!
I love little books and notebooks, I have so many! I have one where I write things I don’t want to forget, like the name of a book, a recipe, a film, something nice that I’ve read, the address of some interesting place… I also have one to write down all the funny things Hana is starting to say. I have a journal that I’m writing about her since she was born, (it will be for her).  I also wrote one during my pregnancy…
I have books for everything!

  1. Ooh those books are so pretty Irina! I would use it to draw quilt ideas in, always have to have a notebook with me for when inspiration strikes!

  2. Hola Irina! Que maco es aquest llibre – m'encanta els llibres fet a ma! I also have little books for things I love – If I win, I'd use this gorgeous book for all the special quotes I collect. Una abraçada de Catalunya i felicitats per dimecres! xx

  3. Hi Irina! You know I love the books you and Una make. They're so beautiful. I need a place to sketch through my quilty difficulties. The corners that just need the math repeated one more time, back designs, etc. I rarely have inspiration just hit me on a tile floor, but always need a place to mentally work though issues with an ongoing project.

  4. Hi Irina!Happy Birthday for Wednesday! I had a double digit birthday this year too, 'though not the same as yours!Una's books are gorgeous! I would love one to use as a journal – does Una have a website?

  5. Moltes felicitats pel cumple! La faria servir per escriure contes i fer dibuixets per les meves filles, per quan siguin grans, la llegeixin.Per cert, jo també tinc llibretetes per tot, en tinc un munt 🙂

  6. Primer de tot per molts anys!!!! Em sembla que facis el que facis seràs el centre d'atenció així que ja posats què tal passar-s'ho bé i celebrar-ho amb els que més t'estimes. Doncs per què faria servir la llibreta? Doncs em sembla que per fer-hi un collage amb totes aquelles idees i estils que m'agraden pels quilts, i poc a poc anar-me definint una miqueta.Jo també tinc una llibreta on escric l'evolució del David!

  7. I would use the book to keep notes when I visit Ireland next year, and then add photos from my trip!

  8. How pretty – you've inspired me to learn how to make books myself! I've been searching for the perfect idea book to keep with me – by my bed or perhaps slipped into my bag. This is a lovely little blog – I've added you to my reader!

  9. How exciting to see the books you're making. I'd love to own one. I like to carry books with me so I can write notes of things I want to remember. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  10. What beautiful books you create; a friend’s son also makes books, I find them to be so intriguing and special. I would start a family history for my daughter.May your thirty-third birthday celebration be everything you desire and make some unbeatable memories.

  11. I would most probably use it as a journal and maybe writing music notes.

  12. Hola,Jo també estic a l'espera del meu aniversari, que és el dia 26 ;)Jo faria servir la llibreta com a base per fer un álbum d'scrap. La temàtica fàcil: del dia 5 d'Octubre, quan em van diagnosticar càncer, al 5 d'Agost, quan vaig celebrar que tot havia acabat bé. Està clar que és un període de la meva vida per recordar.Moltes felicitats!

  13. I would love to win this beautiful hand made book and give it as a present to my husband. He really appreciates beautiful notepads and writes all kind of lovely things inside – sometimes quotes from books, some times thought than come to his mind, some times just lovely words! Thanks for the great giveaway and Happy Birthday!

  14. I love little notebooks and keep them for various purposes – right now I can think of four I have going. One each for recording the books I read, recording my blog swaps, writing a journal, and for quilt designs and info. I would love to put one of your books into use as a journal when my current book fills up. Happy 33rd birthday!

  15. Primer de tot… i que no se'm passi per la emoció…FELICITATS IRINA!!!!I ara Ohhh!! Jo ja ho tinc pensat!!! Sí, sí, m'encantaria la llibreta per a fer un petit dietari pels meus peques… tinc moltes cosetes guardades de tot el procés i alguna foto… i esperen que trobi el lloc ideal per a enganxar-ho… i és clar… la teva llibreta seria molt especial!!!Una abraçada i feliços 33!!!Gisela

  16. Ei, ei!! Que me n'oblidava…. aquí està la meva entrada al bloc!!

  17. I love your bookbinding! I have just found your blog tonight and have become a follower. I would use this book to sketch for future quilts, mostly from nature–I would also keep my nature photographs here for inspiration. So, your book would become a total inspiration journal for me!Thank you for the opportunity to have something from a place I wish to travel to: Ireland! Perhaps someday!
