aww.. altered books never break my heart... Like for instance, I've collected so many kids books for free, or a bag for a quarter from yard sales- they had missing pages, crayon markings, etc. I used them to decorate shelves in my daughter's room. I have a book right now that I absolutely love that I'm missing the whole third chapter from, and one day if I can find that book in its entirity, I hope to use that book to make a craft.

I swear... If no one ever bought on impulse we would be missing out on some great treasures that got overlooked somewhere along the line!

The End of Mr Y Grin It just looked so bizarre next to all the "normal" books it was grouped with, with it's black page sides and firey cover. (It was lying next to some romance, drama and crime fiction books - the closest book there genre wise was some nobel prize philosophy deal, other than that it was completely out of place)
I bought it with no clue as to what it was, and I loved it to death. It was about as bizarre as it looked. Roll Eyes

Wondering if I should sign up for my friend (who is a serious book nerd) or myself.  I'm not your typical book reader though.  Lately it's been either zombie books or knitting books.

Japanorama!  I loved that show.  There is a series of these movies: Calamari Wrestler, Executive Koala, Crab Goalie, etc.  I've seen the first two, but haven't been able to find the rest.  Instant classics.

I'm thinking I might just join this swap.  Yay!

Crafts make us feel rooted, give us a sense of belonging and connect us with our history.  Our ancestors used to create these crafts out of necessity, and now we do them for fun... to express ourselves.

So why buy what you can craft?  Smiley
