Hi Kristie,

After watching your video, I went to itunes right away and bought “Birdhouse in your soul”. I had completely forgotten about that song which I used to love.

Thanks for the tutorial. Have a wonderful day.

Kristie…GREAT JOB! This is a wonderful example of using what you have and your own hands
to create something useful and beautiful. First the books, second, your hands, third engaging your daughter and modeling what a resourceful, creative, and grace–full Mom does!
Thanks for this “Wink”;).

why did you take off the top cover of @ book? What decorating effect does the cover on or off and put twine on the books have in a rm.

Hi,
I’m new at following your blog and I love it so far. I also love the book idea, but taking covers off books (even old worn out ones) kind of makes me feel bad. Do you think it would have the same effect if I left the covers on? Or did you take off the covers to make the stack of books kind of a neutral piece? Do you think the covers would take away from the overall look?
