Mary is an insane crafter.  I turn my back for ten seconds, and the next thing I know she's making a quilt, or painting a chair, or re-wiring an old chandelier.  As you can imagine, a number of the crafts in our house are book-related.  I thought I'd start sharing some of our more bookish creations on The Scop.  First up, a series of shadowboxes we made for our bookshelves:

Neat, eh?  In the coming weeks I'll try to post some other book-related crafts (mostly Mary's).  If you've made anything bookish and awesome, send me some pics and I'll feature it!
