How to Make a Wooden Ride on Animal Swing – Fun with Retro Project Books

Books are an addiction of mine. So is crafting. There are many treasures that are hidden in old “how to” books, that are sadly overlooked. Maybe the pictures aren’t the greatest and the cover isn’t as flashy, but they have a nostalgic feel and a lot of great ideas.
