Nancy Drew Crafts

Hi Everyone,

Long time no blog! :) A fellow Sleuth member pointed me to Somerset Studio Gallery magazine, Summer 2007 issue. On page 139 starts a neat Nancy Drew purse project with neat accessories! Here are some small pics of the article and crafts, click on them for larger images. If you need a spiffy summer project, this is it! If anyone makes one, or attempts it, send me pics:)
I actually made a Nancy Drew trunk purse a few years ago decoupaging many images of Nancy Drew all over it. My mom lined it with a blue satin liner and it has a small flashlight and magnifying glass inside it.

How creative!! I too wish I was still ageless like Nancy. I turned 35 this year!! Guess who I met last weekend? Rudy Nappi - he illustrated the covers of the Nancy Drew books from 1953 - 1979. He lives near me (NC) and had a book signing at Borders. I plan to blog about it - I took lots of pictures. The bookstore had a gallery of prints that were covers - I wish they were for sale! To make a long story short, when I was in NJ last month, I went to a used bookstore & found the 1953 edition (blue hardback with dust jacket) of The Clue of the Velvet Mask - turns out that was the 1st cover he did. Everyone at Borders was envious - even Rudy told me that he wished he had a copy!! I had him sign that and my 1969 edition of the same book.

That's fun! We had a couple of Sleuths members who went to the signing too named Amanda and Pam. I sent a book of mine that I had as a child to one of them to have Rudy sign.
