Early Birthday Present

Yesterday I received an early birthday present from my wonderful husband, John.  It arrived ahead of schedule but he let me open it anyway.  It wasn’t exactly a surprise since it was something I had asked for.  He’s a very smart man, he got me exactly what I asked for.

So the first thing I had to do is make a cover for it.

So what is it you ask? 

A Kindle!  Yea!!!!

I’ve wanted one for a long time but first I needed to talk to various people that own one and and get their input and then I needed to wait until after the IPad was announced.  At one point I thought I’d get the IPad but after the announcement I realized that the Kindle was still my first choice. 

I really wanted an ebook reader just for reading.  I already have an IPhone  (that I love) and I have a netbook for when I travel.  I was hoping the IPad would be a bit smaller so that I could lay in bed and read with it but it turns out it’s just too big for what I wanted it for. 

The Kindle is the perfect size for me and does exactly what I wanted it for and that is to read a good book.

And here it is standing up

The website with a lot of fun stuff to make is and the link to the Kindle cover pattern it here.  It was fairly simple to make and their directions easy to follow. 

I still think I may make a padded zipper case for when I take it with me but for the most part it will live at home on my nightstand. 

Thank you, Hon!  I love my birthday present.

  2. John did a great job as usual. Can't wait to hear what you think about it after using it for awhile.

  3. Oh you lucky girl you! You will love it. Not that I have one; but, I know you will love it.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
