Thanks so much for entering the giveaway for the hanging book display (a.k.a. Book Sling) everyone. I was blown away by all the entries. Take a look:
As you can see, I printed out all the responses, cut them up, and then put them in my Dutch oven. I scrambled them around and pulled out Jenna's response to the question "What was your favorite book as a child or your favorite book to read to your children now?"
What's funny is that Jenna's entry inspired me to check out "Little House in the Big Woods" at the library the other day. I know my kids are too young to sit through me reading it aloud, so I checked it out on audio and have been playing it for them while we craft and cook for the last couple of days. Bo kind of half listens and chimes in every once in a while with a question about what's being said, and tonight she asked me to play "the book about the girl."
I loved reading all the responses and I plan to write a post that lists all the favorite books with links to Amazon one day soon. So many of the books were my favorites too, and then there were several that I'd never heard of before that I can't wait to track down.
So, Jenna, let's talk fabric. I'll be sure to post a photo of the book sling I make her once I get it done.
Remember, if you want to make your own book sling, follow the directions here. And if you want to buy one from me, go here.
Thanks again, everyone. It warmed my heart to read all the excitement for the giveaway and to learn a bit more about who all is out there, dropping by the carnival.
JUST HAD TO ADD: Apparently today was Jenna's birthday. A Friday the 13th and everything. Ooooooh. Freaky Friday.
