Secret Compartment Altered Book

When you're living with a chronic illness like Lyme disease in my case, you need a hobby to keep your mind off yourself.  I'm always open to new craft projects that I can accomplish mostly on my own.  The art of taking an old book and turning it into a work of art is so rewarding.  But, in my case I had to have help from my DH in order to get the job done right.

Your spouse should be someone who is there to lend a helping hand when you need it and ask for their help.  Mine is wonderful at making things turn out just the way I invision them, so we have a wonderful happy marriage.

He did all the cutting and I did all the embellishing.  Tada! Here is the first of my secret compartment books.  They are for sale for only $20.00 and for the month of February includes shipping.
