Holy cow, I love that journal! I love that the stamps are hand carved, and I love the 5-star rating system, and the tabs on the edge! I'm definitely going to have to steal that idea for something else...since I don't use book journals... (The gears are turning...maybe I could make one as an "index" to my favorite recipes in my cookbooks. Then, I could record the recipe, the book it came from, and the page number. I could even use a rating system! And, I could divide it up into tabbed sections like Appetizers, Desserts, etc. Oh, I am so making one of these!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!!   Okay, back to the swap at hand...)

The carved book plate stamps are also a cool idea! The next time I give a book as a gift, I might have to include one of these. In fact, I have to make a gift for a young friend pretty soon... I think some stamp carving might be in order, here... Thanks again for the inspiring idea!!

Sorcha, your square came out awesome! And didn't you just have a baby? So, I say that you are #1, and your friends make #'s 2 & 3 out of that whole dealio... So, I think you're safe Wink
Actually, one of them was my co-pregnancy buddy at work (her baby was born the day before mine...yeah, good timing hmm?)  The tally reset on this, lol...


Uh-oh! You'd better make friends with the next pregnant lady you see! Wink

And, zombiecazz, I like the highlighted center of your square. It looks great, and I don't think it looks too wonky!

Another great haul of books! And, that bag is fabulous! And, so sweet, as well!

I've been spending a bit of time in my "book room" (not organized enough to be called a library...yet) and have realized how many books I own that I have not read. So, I've started reading...

I recently read:
Fatal Forecast by Michael Tougias (true story)
Alex Ryan, Stop That! by Claudia Mills (middle school level)

And, I'm part-way through:
Twinkie, Deconstructed: My Journey to Discover How the Ingredients Found in Processed Foods Are Grown, Mined (Yes, Mined), and Manipulated into What America Eats by Steve Ettlinger

Even though I have a ton of books to read, I keep buying more! But, they are a mix of fiction and non-fiction (with a lot of reference books thrown in... not the kinds of things you "read" but peruse...).

I do love books...

oh that raggedy ann is so cute and ganesh and ryo are also fabulous!

You took the words right out of my keyboard! I had a Raggedy Ann doll when I was a kid, and that dotee just brought back a flood of happy memories! And, AlwaysInspired, your dolls are all so unique, I love it! Mine will all bear a strong family resemblance, I think Wink

redstar13- It looks great! I don't have any blue in my house, but my sister is a big fan of blue... so she is a potential gift recipient. It would also be the perfect size for my SIL's trestle style kitchen table! They might have to fight over it if I win in Wink

She's adorable! I think that someone might be getting some gnome pillows for Christmas...

Thanks again for such a great tutorial and for sharing your patterns!

What a fantastic haul of books (I so want to steal that Spider Silk book from your son Wink )! And, your crafted items came out awesome, especially the tote bag- the quote on it is fantastic!

Okay, now I'm developing swap anxiety...

I gave a bunch to my mom for Mother's Day (she actually used one of them as a "doily" on the coffee table) and then stacked up the rest on the kitchen table (I don't have any counter space, really). That way, when I needed one, I could just grab it!

I really do need to make a few more, though...

Thanks for such a detailed response! I'm glad you said you machine sewed the signatures. It makes the task seem less daunting Wink

I'm definitely going to be on the lookout for a neat kids book that I can dismantle...with love of course!

Can't wait to see you next one!
