I want to introduce you to someone who is very dear to me. My friend, Rachel, not only inspired us to create TakeThemAMeal.com, she has been a constant friend, and has modeled graceful hospitality to me for many years. Rachel and her family are super creative, so I cannot wait to share her ideas with you through the TakeThemAMeal.com blog.

"Mom, May I make a Quiet Book for Carmen?" These words came from my 12-year-old daughter, Allison, who just loves making things, and became inspired from perusing Pinterest for Quiet Book ideas.
"Sure! That would be great," says I. And so began the project you see here before you. As I wrote in my post on keeping my three-year old occupied during school time, I can use all the help I can get in finding engaging activities for her. And this one is a good one for church, too.
Allison soon got busy snipping felt into quite an array of shapes and sizes and hand stitching them into all these fantastic pages known as a "Quiet Book." I had nothing to do with this other than offering her some advice and feedback at various points along the way. She's very motivated when it comes to completing a craft project. This took up most of her spare time for five days, and here is the result:
