Ok, I was going to do these pages two at a time, but I’m going to be honest with you. I am so sick of writing about this busy book. I mean, I was so excited to show it to you at first, but since I can only manage to get out 1 or 2 posts a week, it’s just been dragging on. And I don’t want it hanging over my head anymore. I want to post about Christmas stuff now. So here are all the rest of the pages with instructions.
Goodness, guys. These busy book posts just keep coming. 😉
Hopefully you’re not getting sick of them yet. But this marks the halfway mark! So many pages…
I promise I’ll do a not-busy book related post this week, too, for those of you who couldn’t care less about busy books & how to make them.
I also have an update to make to the first page, since something broke & I had to do a little redesign. I’ll get that up as soon as I get to it. Which could very possibly not be until after Christmas at this rate.
Does anyone else find it exceptionally difficult to get yourself going after a long holiday weekend? I sure do.
I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving weekend (well, those of you who are American. I hope the rest of you had a great regular weekend.) We had a lovely Thanksgiving, spent with my grandparents, aunts and sister.
Anyway, I’ve been in a Christmas tizzy the last few days, trying to get as much shopping done as possible before things get really busy. So forgive me if the posts get a little light around here.
I know I’m a little late in getting this post up. I’ve been meaning to do it for ages. In case you didn’t see them, you can check out the previous posts: Busy Book overview and Pages 1 & 2.
The pages I’m going to show you in detail today are the bird and the tree.
I had grand plans, guys. I was totally going to have 2 posts this week. But it’s already Thursday and tomorrow is booked, so it seems unlikely that it will happen. I hope you forgive me. Hubs took Monday and Tuesday off this week, so we had a little vacation. Today I feel like I’m on turbo trying to catch up on laundry, household chores, and blogging. So I think instead of telling you intensive details about this busy book, I’ll mostly just show you pictures.
Scroll to the end for links to detail pages!
I started this book before my mom left, so late May/early June. And I didn’t finish until just before Little Man’s birthday. So 4ish months. Not counting the 2-3 months I spent thinking & planning. In reality, this wasn’t particularly difficult, and probably could have been done in a week or two, if I didn’t have, you know, a 2-year old.
I used mostly felt for this book, with patterned cotton accents. I threw in a little faux fur, craft foam, and various fasteners. Without further ado, here it is!
