A Christmas Craft

It's been a while since I last posted. Life has gotten in the way of blogging. Our family from Michigan was here this past week and we had several activities planned for the whole family. We really enjoyed having them all here and will miss them as they drove home today. We will see them again pretty soon when they come for Nora and Topher's wedding in April.

A while back I mentioned that I had been working on some projects that I couldn't show yet. Well, I have actually already given this one to a friend who will be going away for Christmas, so I'm free to show it now. I saw this post about making a wreath from a paperback book and thought I would try making it from an old hymnal for my friend, Judy, who teaches music.

I found this old hymnal at a thrift store and thought it would be perfect for this project. The pages were a little larger than a regular paperback book so I had to devise my own method for rolling the pages, but over all it was a very fun project to make and I was pleased with how it turned out. I'd like to make more of these in the future if I can find some more old hymnals.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful week and making progress in your Christmas preparations.
