List It Tuesday - Junk Drawer

1. Heavy duty hole punch
2. Awl
3. Bone folder
4. Thread conditioner
5. Irish linen thread
6. Speedball linoleum cutter
7. Brad setter
8. Needles
9. Paper clip
10. Document repair tape

I don't know if you would really call this a junk drawer.  There's a lot of pencils all over the bottom of my large box that I didn't draw.  And needles out of their cases.  So it looks a little cleaner in my drawing.  In this drawer I put all my small tools that I use for bookbinding.  The scissors aren't in there right now because I use them all the time.


My Speedball linoleum cutter I put in here, but it's not used for bookbinding.  Not really sure why I got the brad setter; probably used it once or twice.  Funny, all the handles seem to be red... except the wooden awl.   


Whenever I look in this drawer, I think about making books again.  I have a few in my Etsy shop, but actually there aren't many left...  Lately, I keep thinking about other projects.  More to come about that!

This week's List It Tuesday topic was suggested by NatashaMay: contents of your junk drawer.  Hear about other junk drawer at aimee's blog, artsyville.

I knew this topic was going to find a way to make me jealous! LOL! I think it would be fun to learn bookbinding. So cool.

I recently bought a book on bookbinding because I keep toying with idea of learning and this book ("Making Handmade Books" by Alisha Golden) has a bazillion project ideas in a variety of skill levels.

And to comment on the red thing, isn't funny what we notice when we give the mundane just a bit more of our attention?

Another artsy junk drawer! I don't have one because practically everything I have/use is on my table top so I can "find" it. Ha! Thanks for sharing - visiting from ListIt

Your junk drawer is funner than ours! You should make your art journals so you can combine both crafts!
