Greetings, fellow Crafters, Kindlers and Do-It-Yourselfers!
A while back, out of concern for the well-being of my then-new Kindle, I decided a cover of some sort might be a good idea. In my usual do-it-yourself way I created a simple and exceedingly inexpensive (cheap) one and it worked quite nicely. I decided to post the easy steps on my personal blog and share it on a few forums, figuring others might like my solution.
I quickly discovered I’d greatly underestimated just how many of you were looking for ideas and inspiration. Overnight my blog went from a handful of visits a day to hundreds. Five hundred, six hundred… eight hundred! Readers shared their designs, posted links, ideas. I’ve since improved upon my first, so very simple and basic design, and each time I post a new how-to the response is the same. Clearly Kindlers are a creative, imaginative group and I’ve seen many delightfully beautiful variations on my covers. I’m pleased to know I’ve inspired so many, and I’ve come to realize it might be nice to have a place where Kindlers could share and showcase their creations. So I’m putting out a call to all Kindlers; if you’ve made a wonderful cover that you’re proud of, have a unique solution or anything else you’d like to share, let me know. I’ll be adding some fun new covers of my own, but I’m also sending out an invitation for other creative Kindlers; if you’d like to post a guest blog here, please contact me at eviegrundler(at)gmail(dot)com.
