2018 Holidays by the Book

Hi everyone! Yes, I'm still alive even though my blog has been very quiet - a new job and life-in-general will do that. Anyway, it feels like fall in Chicago and my daughter's mind is already on Halloween and holidays in general. So I was inspired to pull together a thoroughly bookish holiday post.

The goal: Everything holiday, by the book! Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving decor, and all December decorating and giving... using old books and book pages. 

Doable? Yes! Ready? Here we go.

HALLOWEEN 


"Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!"

I'm not a big wreath person but holy Poe, this Raven-inspired thing is cool! All the instructions here.


Upcycle: Seasonal Book ReFabs!


A little Harvest, a little Halloween... A little seasonal book refabbing? Yes! 

1) A ghost of centerpieces past
2) Paperback Jack-Kerouack-O-Lanterns
3) A Book Pumpkin  (Bumpkin?)
