sometimes it just comes together.
I've been wanting to make Andrew some little books to use in Mommy School. But I didn't really know how to do it. Or what to write. Or how to illustrate them. And little by little this idea unfolded.
I decided to start with what I already do. I take pictures. I can tell Andrew a little story through some pictures. Maybe a story about him going down the slide, or eating pizza. Something little and simple. But it didn't happen.
Then, this morning in the shower, I had an idea. I was planning on make a pumpkin pie this morning and photographing the process for my blog, like I usually do. Why not make that into a little book? It's a start at least. I can try it out. See what I think. See what he thinks. A good beginning. And not unlike what I do every day.
So, We/I made a pie. And then I printed my photos on cardstock, printed some very simple text to go with each picture and quickly assembled the pages. Then, I sandwiched each page in between transparency film and sewed around the edges. This way the little book could stand a chance with my cah-razy boys. And that was it. Less than an hour. Little book made.
But the other question is. Does this mean I can cross off "write a book" from my To Do list? ;)
