The One with Prepping for the 1000th Post Giveaway


Friday, April 8, 2011

I figured out what I'm going to do for my 1000th post giveaway (take a chill pill, it won't be for another couple months - about 60 posts to go!). Instead of a hodge podge of random schtuff going to one person, I'm going to make ten "PaigeBooks" and give one to ten different people. That way the odds of winning something are better. Win win. I've started gathering things to make covers out of and can't wait to get started.

I got some beautiful mini tiles at Home Depot today:

And bigger tiles, also from Home Depot:

I can also use wood,

fabric covered chipboard,

Cassette disks,

and Plexiglas.

Or new mediums to me like Floppy disks, DVD cases, or my dad suggested sticks glued together. If you can drill holes through it, it can be turned into book covers. Although, I don't even necessarily have to drill holes, I can just use chipboard and cover the chipboard with sticks, rocks, decorative tiles, etc. The possibilities are endless! What other kinds of covers should I make? Suggestions are more than welcome!

Totally un-related but totally worth mentioning: Fox can sit up on his own for longer and longer periods of time every day. I'm betting by the time we go to Washington later this month he'll be sitting on his own for good. A whole new world is opening up before my eyes!

  1. Speaking of going to Washington, do you know if you'll be able to come visit Oregon, too? If so, what day(s) would it be? We have a bed for you and lots of options for Fox.
