I think I had mentioned that my husband bought me a Kindle for Mother's Day. I was so excited and I had been kind of expecting it. I had been anti-Kindle/Ereeder (I don't even know what they are really called). They seemed like a lot of money and I love the idea of books. I had said I was old fashioned. Well now I wish I had gotten one sooner. I love to read but since becoming a mom I read much less. Most of my free time during the day I spend crafting or doing craft related stuff online. I have always loved reading at bed time but for the past two years I have slept in the same room as my daughter. My other problem was getting books. I am too cheap to buy a fiction book (craft books are another story). I love the library. But the problem with the library is that I now take forever to read a book and I forget to renew.
So in the little over a week I have had the Kindle I have read every night. It feels so good to be reading and to have a book I am reading. I really feel like I had been missing something for the past few years. It isn't free but it is worth it.
Here is the cover I made for my Kindle. It makes me love it even more.
I used the tutorial from Clover & Violet. It was great. This was quick and easy. I figured that since I would be using this cover everyday and looking at it a lot that it would be okay for me to cut into some of my Heather Ross fat quarters. Here is the back:
And the inside:
