I finally snagged a New Revised Standard Version! For $3, at the used book store downtown while I was killing time before picking up Genevieve.
But it was so ugly. My first idea was to decoupage the cover. Three problems: 1. decoupage is expensive, even with a coupon. 2. Decoupage can, apparently, get sticky in humid weather. Not cool. 3. And then, I couldn't really imagine what kind of images I would plaster my Bible with. The obvious Christian symbols? Neutral landscapes? Yawn.
So I covered that baby with fabric, a la eighth-grade-paper-bag-on-the-social-studies-book.
