Callaways Series by Barbara Freethy

I love reading books. Although I prefer self-help/self-improvement and personal finance books nowadays, I also love reading contemporary and regency romance books. Among my favorite authors are Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood and Julia Quinn.

A friend of mine gave me a complete set of the books from the Callaways series by Barbara Freethy recently. It's contemporary romance about the Callaway clan. 

Here are the books in the series. I will be updating this post with my book review as I finish reading each book. All images of book covers are from Goodreads.

DIY Donut Pillow for Gesh

Last weekend, Georyl asked me if she can surprise Gesh with a donut pillow. I asked her to look for something that she likes on Shopee but she wanted to use the fabrics that she saw among my stuff to make her own donut pillow. Ain't that sweet?

Anyway, since I can't say no to such a request, I let her draw her concept of her donut pillow on a piece of paper. She wanted one with icing, swirls and sprinkles. She also went through my fabrics and then picked a denim fabric for the pillow and a white fabric with pink crisscross lines for the icing. She can't find anything for the sprinkles but I remembered that we have some felt paper among our supplies.

With the supplies ready, we decided to work on the donut pillow. "Work" means I start working on it while Georyl's task was to make sure that Geshery doesn't go to my room when I am working on the pillow.

After about two hours and a handful of needle pricks, here's what I came up with.

GESHERY... Yes, this pillow is for her.

Sorry for the image quality. Here's the other side.

There's no swirls but we got sprinkles. Colorful ones!

I don't know about you but I think that this DIY pillow is not bad for a newbie. Georyl's facial expression when she saw it was definitely worth all the needle pricks that I had. I just hope Geshery likes her pillow when she gets this!

Using Free Printable Bible Tabs from the Time-Warp Wife

Who hates freebies? Definitely not me!

I was ready to click the "Place Order" button for some bible tabs on Shopee earlier today when I noticed that the shipping cost is almost 2/3 of the price of the item I was planning to buy. Nope, that's too much so I decided to do an online search for downloadable ones to save on shipping fees. Guess what I found? FREE downloadable bible tabs that are fun, stylish, and, did I mention, free?

Among the myriad choices available on the internet, the free printable bible tabs shared by Darlene Schacht of The Time-Warp Wife definitely caught my attention. There was just a minor error in one of the book titles (Obadiah was spelled as Obediah) but overall, the tabs looked wonderful and were really cute.

I resized the tabs via Photoshop to come up with 1" x 0.25" bible tabs, printed them on sticker paper and used packaging tape to laminate the items so they will be sturdy without being bulky.

Laminating the bible tabs by sticking them to the packaging tape.

After cutting them individually, I had to stick the tab to the page where the corresponding book begins.

Sticking the Bible Tabs. You can overlap them if you want. I just placed them next to each other as the bible tab's design has curves on both sides.
 



The process of cutting each tab is a bit tedious in the beginning but as I worked on them, I kinda learned the tricks that made the work faster.

After almost a couple of hours work, I'm done sticking everything.


Look! I can still place the bible in the box without the tabs getting in the way.


The finished look!

I love how my bible looks now. It's easier to locate things with these bible indexing tabs. And because these tabs are DIY, they made the bible more personalized for me.

Have you tried doing any DIY crafts recently? Care to share what it's about?
