Take-A-Look Tuesday: Quiet Book and Link-Up

What a great link-up again!  Thanks for all the great support last week.  I can't wait to see what comes in today's link-up.  But first I want you to take-a-look at this great quiet book from Michelle:
I've been avoiding making a quiet book - several people have asked if I wanted to make one as a group.  We all know how much I love to craft as a group yet I declined the offers - I thought it'd be a lot of work and that the kids wouldn't even play with it.  Well Michelle handed her book to my kids at church and they were entertained the WHOLE time - so I guess I've moved this project onto my to-do list.  Here are some of her cute pages:



See, my little boy likes it so much I couldn't even get him away so I could snap a few pictures.  Thanks for sharing, Michelle (she claims it's easier to make than you think - we'll see...)
Would you like me to show off something you've made?  Just email me!

Now on to your great stuff - let's see it!

So here are the basic rules to the link party if this is your first time here:

  • Link to a Specific Post, not your whole blog (to do this, click on the title of the post you want to link and it will open on it's own page, then copy that url)

  • Grab my button below - you can post it on your post, on your sidebar, on a page of a list of link-ups, wherever as long as it's somewhere

  • Try to visit a few other people on the list - it's fun to support and encourage fellow craftiness - and everyone LOVES comments
If you're new to link-ups and have questions let me know and I'll do my best to help

I'm new to your party! I love linky parties. So much inspiration. :)

Also, I am thinking you wrote the above post for me (about quiet books). lol. I've been resisting because it looks so time consuming! But I really actually would love for my kids to have them, too. I guess I might have to bight the bullet.

Blessings!

Love your soft book, great job!! Thanks for hosting such a great party each week!

I wish I would have had something like this when my children were little. Definitely would have kept them a little more quiet at different times.

Hi Mandy, I'm Kierste from brown paper packages, and I appreciated your comment about my notepaper post over on The Girl Creative, thank you!
What a fun blog you have! I totally love that quiet book--I think I may need to make one!

Hi thank you for visiting my blog and inviting me to the link party! I just linked and I love your blog! I will be linking up more regularly! Have a great day!

That book is the cutest thing ever!! I LOVE it!

Such a cute quiet book. Do you have instructions on how to make it?

I've been avoiding doing one too, but I love the apostles page! I might just have to break down and do one!

well bummer. It's 8pm here and it's already closed. Here is a link if you still want it. :)

Hi,
I'm so confused about the Quiet Book. Who made it? Michelle who? Why isn't there a link to the site where it is so that we can look at it? Is there a tutorial on it. From your pictures here it looks darling. You are very lucky to have it. Enjoy and thank you.

DARLING quiet book... I am going to participate in your next link party! Happy New Friend Fri!
