Anniversary Quiet Book Kit Giveaway!

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.)

How to enter:

  1. To enter, leave a comment in the blog comment form below. Make sure you fill in your email address where it asks so I can contact you if you win.
  2. For a bonus second entry, retweet the following tweet first, then tell me you did (include your twitter name) in your blog comment.

The winner will be chosen randomly in a week on Wednesday June 13th.

Good Luck!

    If you had asked me a year ago what a quiet book was, I wouldn’t have had a clue. But my good friend has made pages for her 3 year old and I have seen what an absolutely wonderful thing they are for learning, imagination and just keeping busy. My twin girls are still a bit too young for quiet books but that just means I have more time to get to making some pages for them.

    This is the best page you have made so far. I can not thank you enough for providing templates for free. Going on a plane in july with my 2 year old and am hoping this book keeps him distracted. Thanks again.

    I love your blog. As I’m typing this, I’m taking a break from making the sand castle page you have posted. I hope it turns out well, but no other blogs that I have seen have such great patterns for their readers to follow.

    I LOVE your quiet Book pages… As I was looking them over I suddenly remembered, that my mother did a quiet book for ouroldest son… I haevn’t sen that for quite some timee ( He’S 11 now) But I am definitely going to be making one for our little girl.. and since she is only 4 moths old I have allthe time I want to get going and finfish the pages!! I think the thing I admire most is the way you kept the book together with binderrings so you can swap out pages!! Very creative and VERY cool! That way even “older” pages can come back and be “New ” again!

    Thanks for sharing!!!
