Quiet Books!  A great idea for learning and keeping busy!  Does anyone want to join me in a craft-a-long?  I have plans on making two for gifts this year, one for my daughter and one for my niece.  I'd love to share ideas!

I have a bunch of these pinned on my Little People board. This could be fun, but I don't know if I'm down for it. Maybe it's inertia issues and once I get into I'll be cool but maybe not? AHHH! We'll see. Give me more ideas and we'll see. Here are some from my Pinterest:
here's one
and another

Jexxican, I think I might be the same way.  I really want to make one (hopefully two) but it seems like a lot of work, but I think once I get going it will be too much fun because there are so many great ideas!

That site is great.
Hey, what would people thing about a quiet book swap? Not just a regular swap, though, one where each person makes one page x[number] of times and then everyone sends to everyone else, or like 6/group or something like that? Any thoughts?

I love that car wash page in that link, katara! And I need a shoe-tying template, so that's perfect! Thanks for sharing.

I would definitely be in on a swap. I'll keep an eye out.
