quiet book

About a year ago, I was in a quiet book exchange with my cousin and 10 other people.  I just have to say that if you ever make a quiet book, they are so much work!  And this is definitely the way to go.  We each made one page 12 times and swapped.  I was at my in-laws for Thanksgiving last year and used my mother-in-law's machine to make my pages.  But with the lack of machine, I hadn't been able to finish the rest of the pages and book until now. 

Needless to say I have been working on it almost non-stop for the last few weeks.  There were a few pages that I made changes to, others that I re-did and some I didn't use, but all in all, the swap was great.  To give the whole book a sense of continuity, I added the words that label each page.  So without further adieu, here it is:

Here it is, all zipped up!  I ended up making more of a case than a cover for the outside because I wanted to be able to zip it all up.  This way hopefully we can reduce the number of missing pieces in the future.

The Family Tree is the only page that is not completely done.  Those little apples are picture frames and need to have pictures of mom, dad and grandma(s) and grandpa(s) inserted. 

The farm animals are little finger puppets!

Need to get a few more animals to put in Noah's ark...

(The lady bug puzzle is the one that I made for the swap.)

Can you see the little car on a string?  This little guy can fit inside both houses!

Last but not lease, I had a blank space at the end, so I wanted to have something fun to put there.  There isn't really an activity to go with this one, but The ribbons are pretty fun to run through your fingers!

Hope you enjoyed it!


I know, I know

I can't believe it has been 3 whole weeks and I have posted nothing.  So sorry.  But I just wanted to let you know that, yes, I am still here, and YES! I am still creating wonderful things.  

I have actually been quite a busy bee since my mother gave me my beloved sewing machine for my birthday.  I have finished a highchair seat cover, a few new bibs for Lynlee and made her a few pair of skinny pants from big baggy ones that she was crawling out of. 

But there is more.  Something big.  Something so big (for me) that it pretty much has been taking ALL of my time lately.  I think my husband may feel a little neglected (I know my esty shop sure does), and I really, really need to catch up on cleaning my house.  It is almost done!  Pictures to come.
