I started working on an altered book several months ago. You can read about it HERE. Since then, I work on it sporadically, often clipping out pictures or jotting down ideas for future pages. Sometimes I actually sit down with my Mod Podge and work for hours. Time has a way of disappearing when I work on my altered book…
I thought I’d let you see a few of my latest pages.
I made two pages from the Christmas cards I received. I love love love the holidays and wanted to have a section in my book devoted to Christmas.
For the next page (below) I cut Christmas cards into circles. As you can see I did it freehanded. The edges aren’t neat and perfect. They don’t need to be. I like the idea of having my cute neighbor kids’ faces in my book.
Below is my “Me” page (front and back). I’m still working on this one. Or maybe it’s finished. I’m not sure.
I also added a calendar insert to my altered book to make it practical as well as inspirational. This year I am planning out my blog posts and other writing three months in advance. As you can see, I change my mind a lot, but I do feel more organized.
I’m working on a few other pages in the garden and kitchen sections of my altered book, but I’ll show you those later.

P.S. I have an Altered Book board on Pinterest. Take a look at the possibilities.
