Hey everybody!Has anybody done the book challenge yet? I sure did! My cute sister-in-law just barely got an Amazon Kindle and didn't buy a case yet. She was carrying around the kindle with a dishtowel around it. I made her this case yesterday.
I would show you the inside of the case, but the pictures didn't turn out very well.If you are wondering where I got this last idea just check out my last post. Also if you want to find out what an Amazon Kindle is or about it click HERE. I hope all of you try to the challenge of making something with a book. Keep Crafting!

Hey everybody! Today I am going to show you a really cute, and fun craft! My mom showed me this the the other day and I thought it was really cute! Click HERE to watch the tutorial. The girl in the video made hers for her Kindle, but you can make it for any electronic reader. I got a Nook Color a few weeks ago. If you don't know what a Nook Color this is what it looks like.
Pretty Awesome! Right? If you want more info about the Nook Color click HERE.It is really awesome and I highly recommend it. Well their cases are kind of expensive and I want to change it up. I already bought one, but I saw this case and thought it was way cute. This is what mine looks like.
This is the inside of the case.
I am going to start doing goals for all of you readers. I want you guys to all make something out of a book. It could be a case or make something out of the pages in the book. Then you can tell me what you made and I will put your project on my blog. If you guys need to contact me for any reason or just for a quick question you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I hope all of you are enjoying my blog! Keep crafting.

Hey Crafters! It has been way too long since I have posted. In December, our family went to New York for a family vacation. While I was there I went to the M&J Trimmings store. It is a really fun store and website, so go check it out! Here are a few things that I made.
They already came as the zipper flower so I glued them to alligator clips on the back of the flower to put in my hair.(I got mine at Hobby Lobby) I also got feather patches and glued them on headbands. You can get headbands at Hobby Lobby or even your grocery store. Here are a few that I made.
This next headband was made with feather ribbon.
This next flower I got the idea from I am Momma Hear Me Roar. Then she got the tutorial from Trey and Lucy's blog. Check out theirs! It was really fun to make. I made it with a great friend and had a fun time!
Here is another cute flower that was way fun! It requires no sewing, only hot glue! Make sure to not burn your fingers, because I sure did! I also got this idea from I Am Momma Hear Me Roar.
She got the pattern from Vanessa at V and Co. This is how mine turned out!
Sorry my pictures aren't very well! I hope all of you crafters are enjoying my blog! Do any of you have any suggestions? Please leave your comments. Keep Crafting!
