Happy New Year to all. One of the fun gifts I made this year, a book clock.

Hi

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

We were unable to celebrate Christmas with our family this year but I had made some little fun gifts for my grandchildren who range in age from 24 to 17.  Their main gifts were under their tree but the cost of mailing the fun gifts was way too high.  Since someone was coming here at some point in January I kept the gifts here.  This is one I can show you as my eldest granddaughter picked it up last night.  You may have to click on the pic to see the detail.  This is a hardcover book with an area hollowed out and the clock mechanism put in the hollowed out part.  Then the cover had a hole drilled in it to allow the hands to work.  The numbers are just glittery peel offs.  The pages were glued together and the rest of them left open so you can get into the book to change the battery.   She loved it.

Have a Blessed day.

Wow, it's been a long time since I've had time to visit!

You've done some lovely things. I love the frosted window cards. I used to have some photos I took of frost on our windows, and I used to print them as backgrounds, but then I lost the files in a hard drive crash. I need to take some more.

Love your bathroom too, (I told you it's been a long time)!

So glad you got the Cameo, you made some beautiful cards with it!

Princess Sadie is gorgeous. You'll never be lonely with her at home!

I can see why your granddaughter loves her clock. That is a beautiful clock and a great way to use a book that perhaps you are done with.

Of course you have to be careful as the book police may come after you for defacing a book. ;-)Now you are going to have me going to the thrift store to find a book to do this with. Thanks for sharing!
