I LOVE TRASHY NOVELS

Not to read but to do this…

I got the idea from Craftberry Bush. I used my band saw instead of an exacto knife like she did for two reasons. First I am not allowed to use exacto knives since I almost cut my thumb off once and it required 5 surgeries and months of healing and it still doesn’t work anymore. The other reason is that I’m lazy and a band saw takes about 30 seconds to cut out the book.

They are so quick and easy to make and you can make them in all sizes…

Think of the possibilities…..

You're back! We missed you. Hope you had a great visit with the hubby. My younger daughters say, "I like that Grams woman!" They are 15, 11 and 8. I need to try these book pumpkins. Look at my Thankful pumpkins with black permanent markers. (Look under fall or crafts on my blog.)

where can i get a bandsaw quick? Really, what a great idea. Sorry about your injury-I too had a run in with some glasses. Fortunately only 1 surgery but my index finger still can't do much-

Hi Grams, I'm cindy geilmann, we met at Brenda's (just a bed of roses) daughter's (shelly) halloween party last year. I am Mimi's friend.

Darling grandchildren, they must be yours.

Wonderful pumpkin, so cute.

Mimi and I had talked about getting together to make a craft. Maybe we could do it for christmas. We wanted you to do it with us.
