Our little blog is 1 year old this month! While I’ve been making websites since 1997 and blogging since 1998, it wasn’t until I had my little Jax that I decided to create a separate blog for all things crafty, creative and kid-friendly in our lives. It actually took a few months before I started to work on making the site because I needed a name.
When inspiration struck, it was due to two of my favorite songs: Imagine, by John Lennon and Across the Universe by The Beatles.
Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
they call me on and on across the universe.
To celebrate our 1 year “blog-iversary”, I am giving away a kit to make our farmer’s market quiet book page. This is not a completed page, but the supplies to create your own.
- felt (winner decides if the pieces are pre-cut and ready to sew or not)
- wooden tags (winner decides if the vegetables are painted on or not)
- Velcro (the green Velcro will be cut into the needed shapes if the felt is cut)
- ribbon & ric-rac
- yellow seed beads
- embroidery thread
- needles (hand-sewing and beading)
- (I do not have any more of the seed packet beads I added to my page, and they are no longer sold. These will not be included in the kit.)

I’m guessing I’m too late, but I just stumbled across your site. These quiet books are beautiful! Maybe I will drop a hint to grandma – the skilled sewer of the family.
I just recently found your website! You are so creative and fun! Thank you for helping me make some AMAZING christmas presents! 🙂 and.. my boyfriend thanks you too.. he just LOVES helping me cut felt;) kind of…
I saw your blog on Pinterest and have now become completely obsessed with your patterns. Because of your blog and awesome instructions I was able to make a darling quiet book for my daughter that she loves to bits! Thank you for always sharing your creativity!
I’ve been looking at Quiet Book examples and by far yours are the most imaginative, colorful, fun and creative that I have seen. Great.

I’ve been sewing (self-taught) for a long time, but just beginning the quiet book/felt creation phase due to relevant life changes on the way. You have a uniquely high quality to your work and I’m excited to begin to create a family legacy with handmade quiet books and other interactive creations. Thanks for the inspiration!
I would like to get this giveaway, if I win I’d make it right away!
