You may remember, last spring, I shared with you some pages of a book I was making for my great granddaughter, Lucy's second birthday. I missed her birthday but, it is finally done....just in time for Christmas.
I wanted this book to be educational for Lucy, turns out I learned a thing or two just by making it.
One thing I learned is I like "instant gratification"......this was not instant! It was a big project and took a lot of time. I had to design the book as I went along plus figure out how to make sturdy enough for a child to actually play with it and interesting enough to hold a child's interest.
It would have gone a lot faster, had I not kept thinking "oh, I could do this" or "oh, I could add that". It has been a challenge.....a good one. I'm, already, thinking of one more fun thing I could do to the book binding! I need to call it "finished"!
There is a total of twelve pages but I'll wait until after Christmas to show those....I want to save the surprise for Lucy's parents.
