Ideas To-Do List April 24, 2012

I have not been good at finding time to enjoy many creative outlets recently.  The most I’ve seemed to manage is to look online and be inspired by many creative projects I’d love to take on, but making them happen, well, that’s another challenge altogether!

Here are a few projects I’ve come across…I may not be getting around to them, but maybe you will be inspired to!

This barely touches the surface of all the amazing things I have come across that I’d love to try.  If you have any wonderful online projects you’ve found, please send me the links, I’d love to see them!

I adore books.  When I was a girl, my best friend and I were happiest when we were hanging out at each other’s houses reading.  My Dad had an every-growing collection of classics and modern literature which I still love to look through when visiting Mum.  Many of his favourites are still on the bookshelf in the lounge room because they simply became part of the decor.  I admit to buying books which I may never get around to reading but still love – and always hope that one day, I’ll get to read them all.  I struggle to write inscriptions in books  because it feels like defacing them, although I have forced myself a few times!  I have books that I read over and over – mainly the Bible, and also the Narnia Chronicles, I Am The Cheese, The Secret GardenThe Little Prince and The Shack.  I am partial to vintage books, and although I love the idea of using them in craft projects, I can never bring myself to actually cut them up or re-purpose them. 

I know you don’t have to buy an actual book any more to read amazing stories.  You can carry them all on your iPad or your Kindle and travel the world with thousands of books at your fingertips.  But there is still something very reassuring about picking up a great book, turning its pages and reading a fantastic story.       

I like these book-inspired items on Made It and thought you might too.  (Even if I couldn’t bring myself to drawing on them or punching shapes out of them, I still really like these items!)
