My new reader

One of my favorite milestones for my kids, is when they start reading, really reading. As in "Mom, I'm not sleepy yet, can you leave the light on so I can read to myself?" Or, when I wake up in the morning and they're already snuggled up with a good book.  {{{love that}}}}

I've been using a trip to the bookstore as a reward lately, and it works like a charm.  Money for books is money well spent.  However, I'm going to need a bigger bookshelf.... My six year old is now making the big step into chapter books.  And, he was needing a way to mark the page for where he left off (he was currently using baseball cards, or sticker's from the doctor's office, or little bits of artwork) so together we went to my crafty area and I let him choose from my (generous) stash of paper.

Once he picked this set from My Mind's Eye, I grabbed LOTS of stamps and Die-namics to coordinate.  This is the First Class Friend Die-namic for the frame, combined with the Just the Ticket.  I used Hearts A Plenty in cork along with the letters from Typewriter Alphabet, just a bit of Postage Stamp Border Die-namics across the bottom.

I've stitched it all together for durability (and yes, because I love to sew on my projects.) But this should help it last a little longer.  But let's be real, when he eventually ruins it, you know I'll have fun making a replacement......
