Oh hey. I made a thing.
I bought a pattern for a Star Trek busy book (or "quiet book") here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/83142930/star-trek-inspired-quiet-book-pattern
And then I finally got around to making it.
Pictures are HERE: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10107912851339420.1073741832.13953311&type=1&l=18939c0ce0
The album should be public. It was the easiest way to keep posting photos as I make new pages. I shared it on Facebook because, well...it took a lot of work and it's cool and I kind of wanted more than just D and N to see it.
When I get on a tear about something, I can really become absorbed. So I designed my own pages for TOS and more for TNG. I added more (mostly female) characters. Making-with-hands projects like this are super soothing and relaxing for me. The problem is time-time-time. I get absorbed in doing this and everything else falls away. Or, rather, everything else that could go in that little slot of spare time between when the baby goes to bed and when *I* must go to bed. If I had full days, or even a few full afternoons, the job would go much more expediently.
It's pretty cool though. There are two discrete books: TNG and TOS. I'll post pictures when they're all done-done and bound and such (TNG is almost to this state).
And I might have started designing a Monty Python book, too.
