I've Started to Make Books

Ok, so this is off topic from my normal posts but I just thought I'd show you two books that I have made so far.  My materials aren't by any means professional, but hey they worked and the final product looks pretty neat.  For the covers I used heavy cardboard and construction paper and the pages were just light cardstock and computer paper, oh I also used thick thread to sew the pages together.
I've been thinking of getting a bunch of professional materials and selling these books cause I find making them quite enjoyable.  Let me know what you think! :)

The First book I made, It's going to be my garden journal.  I'm going to snazz it up a bit with some distressing ink and chipboard bits :)

 Pages are glued in and it's drying time..
Finished!  ( I had a brain fart, I don't know why I chose green and blue)
It turned out a bit crooked cause the pages shifted when I was gluing, but oh well I still like it :)
