DIY Madeline Book Banner

Were finally getting our girl, and I have always adored the name Madeline from the books as a child. When James agreed to the name I was ecstatic! Unfortunately there is not a lot of Madeline rooms out there that I could find. Finding some decor ideas was a bit of a challenge, I did however see a recent picture of someone who was selling a vintage book banner and it gave me an idea for her room! I previously had an old ripped up Madeline Book and just never felt the will to throw it away.

What you will need:

Madeline Book

Scissors

Pencil

Whole punch

Twine or ribbon

Directions:

1. Carefully take all the pages, and pick out the pages that you feel will look best!

2. I decided to cut down the pages to all one size , I chose a page that was the perfect size I had in mind and use it as a template to cut out the rest of the pages down to its size.

3. After you have traced and cut, Put the pages in desired order that looks best to you! I put mine in semi order what how the book went.

4. Then take the whole punch a place one whole on either side of a page at the top.

5. Take your twine or ribbon a feed it through the whole punches wholes in desired order you had laid out.

6. Hang up the banner and enjoy!

Honestly super simple project, and it’s the perfect fit for a Madeline inspired nursery, or any book inspired nursery.

The Crowns of Croswald Book Review

Review

I was browsing on Instagram, and looking through a few pages I follow, and I noticed quite a few people talking about this book. Recently my husband had built me a bookshelf for my small but growing book collection, so I’m desperately trying to fill it. Even though I already have a long list of to be read books, I pulled this one ahead of all the rest. After going to the author D.E Night’s blog and seeing the trailer (Which was amazing) I quickly jump into the book and let my imagination take over.

To start off I was completely intrigued by the cover, Seeing the girls all bright I was excited to see if and what kind of magic was behind them. A lot of people who reviewed the book have said it is a mixture of a Harry Potter and Cinderella type feel, and they were totally right. Even though I loved this book, the only thing that was a con for me, was I that I was confused on a few parts during the first few chapters, but by the end of the book everything had straightened its self out so I understood better.

Minus that, this book had me guessing what was going to happen next, Every time Fyn and Ivy were together I was hoping Fyn would steal a quick kiss. I fell in love with the Magic and the creatures throughout this book. From the perfectly put description, I could imagine everything from the dwarf to the Cabby’s. D.E Night did an amazing job keeping you on your toes throughout the book and then left you wanting more at the end. It definitely had you getting the Harry Potter and Cinderella vibes throughout the whole book, from Ivy being a Maid, to the school, and a few other things in between. I honestly did not want to put this book down, trying to make dinner and spilling pasta sauce on it, My husband had me put it down so I could actually have a conversation with the family and not burn our food.

Finding out from her Instagram that D.E Night has now written a second book I am extremely excited about where and what Ivy’s next adventure is going to be. I am giving this book a 5 out of 5. I enjoyed this book so much and encourage you do grab it and dive into the adventures

D.E Night is releasing the second book of this series “The Girl with the Whispering Shadow” and its already on preorder and It is already in my cart! It comes out January 23rd 2019! I am so beyond excited for this book!
