I've been wanting to make a quiet book for Lovebug and finally decided to jump right in! I looked for ideas on the internet and found that there are some pretty talented and creative people out there making some really great books! I borrowed some ideas for inspiration and some were so adorable that I had to make one just like it!
Here is my first completed page. We have lots of little finger puppets, and I am going to make more for this puppet stage!
I'm making my pages 11x11 so that the cover will be 12x12. It gives me more room for fun things I want to include. If you'd like to peruse some of the pages that I have fallen in love with, visit the following websites:

http://homemadebyjill.blogspot.com/2009/04/quiet-book-page-1.html This is my biggest inspiration. Click on quiet book on the sidebar, then "my quiet book" at the top to see all her pages.
http://fortytworoads.blogspot.com/2007/10/close-your-clothes.html cute, I'm going to do one thing from here, not sure what yet.
So that's where most of the ideas that got my own wheels turning came from. The barn with puppets idea on Jill's page is what made me think of doing a theater.
I'll post more pages as I get them done. Hopefully if you are working on one too, you'll get some good ideas from mine and these others.
