365 Handmade Books: Painted Songs, Day 360

It is hard to believe it: A year of blogging about this project will come to an end in 5 days.  How quickly time has gone by.  When I look back on this project I think about the days when I was excited and the days when I was too tired to continue.  Most of all, I think about modern technology and how it has allowed me to share this project with you.
