This is the CUTEST case ever! I have been looking literally for YEARS for an upcycled book case for my Kindle and almost pulled the trigger on a couple but they just weren't the right book but then when I saw this Barbie book, it was immediately a happy flashback to my childhood and reading these books! The quality in the craftsmanship is amazing and the case inside and out is gorgeous! I am so happy, and I will definitely be shopping with this seller again. She has made this nostalgic girl very happy!

Love this cover and the fact it's used from a book cover!

FAR EXCEEDED my expectations, and they were high just from seeing all the great vintage books repurposed for tablet readers. Kudos on a wonderful concept brought to life especially the curated constellations fabric used on the inside covers. AND A BIG THANKS to this bibliophile for including the frontispiece and title pages with the delivery. SO MUCH CLEVER going on here!
Transforming unloved stuff into treasures
Books are one of my passions, so it's no accident that they eventually found a way into my studio. I browse bookstores for old hardbacks with cool graphic designs or kitschy illustrations on the cover. They make perfect tablet and Kindle cases! I enjoy choosing the perfect fabric to match each cover.
When I travel, I search out fellow "upcyclers." I've met artists in Taos, New Mexico and Eugene, Oregon. I describe their work and my own experiments on my blog, http://creativeupcycling.blogspot.com.
My friends and family -- especially my husband -- are great supporters of my work. They give great feedback and are often willing to accompany me on one of my "treasure hunts." At home, I enjoy the assistance of my 3 black cats.
I live in the Northwest with my husband and 3 cats. When it's not raining, I'm outside in the garden. I love combining old things to create new unexpected and useful art.
