If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you know that
I just got my sewing machine back from Mr Sew and Vac after
never having it serviced... in like 15 years. I was so frustrated the last time I
made any thing, I was ready to through it out a moving truck.
But my friend Laura encouraged me to have it serviced before I
threw in the towel completely. That was almost a year ago.
I'm so glad that I listened to her.
I just got it back and decided that a nice afternoon project was in order. Nothing big...
"Let's set ourself up for success" I said to myself.
So I made a cover for my journal bible.
Mind you, my hubby carried this for a couple of years before I
inherited it. SO, it was in need of some extra LOVE.
Here's the cover that I made. I'm pretty (really) happy with it.
I have a tutorial here for some bible covers that I had made
previously. I also made a cover for a friend's NOOK... that post is here.
(just incase you want to see)
I added index tabs to the top of the bible.
I added scrapbooking paper to the inside as it was starting to look
a little tired. I also added extra book mark ribbon to match the paper.
I seriously couldn't wait to show it to you guys.
I'm chuckling because when I showed it to my husband, he kind of
started laughing and said " You know, this is SO incredibly excessive?"
I just smiled and said "I KNOW! Isn't it AWESOME?"
I did an entry a few weeks ago from 1Samual 16: 7
But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things human beings look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
GOD sees our full potential!
Meaning that in the right hands, something ordinary becomes EXTRA ordinary.
So, I'll leave you with that my peeps!
Have an AWESOME week!
