Joyful Creations - Re-Covering an Old Book

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

   Wow life can pass by so quickly at times, but I am glad my life has slowed down a bit. I am currently writing this post at 2:15 in the afternoon on a Wednesday. Why you ask is this important information to share? Well because this is my first official week as a full time stay at home wife, and I am so excited about this new phase in my life. Mr Joyful Thrifter and I have been working towards this goal for quite some time, and now that it is here I am not sure if it feels real quite yet. I hope to be bringing some wonderful DIY posts soon and some more baking posts too.

   My sweet aunt gifted me a knitting book that she has had for quite some time. The information in the book is great, but the book needed a bit of love. She told me the next time I saw her that I would need to bring the book all fixed and pretty. I hope she likes it.

Here are the steps I took to give this book a new colorful life

I think this book is going to enjoy its new life as a hip and colorful book

What have you all been working on lately?
