We took full advantage of being in a "real" city and went to a total of FIVE different Borders bookstores. Five...in 3 days. One of my favorite purchases is that big, thick Martha Stewart Encyclopedia of Crafts book. Holy crap it's got so much cool stuff in it.
I made my first Martha project.....beaded hair clips.
For the past couple of days I have been feeling completely boring and uninteresting so I needed a project that I knew I could complete in one sitting and then use immediately. Those kinds of projects make me feel good.
Back to the books....a few others that made their way into my home via the real city:
- I Thought It Was Just Me by Brene Brown. If you care anything about living an authentic life you will love this book. It will blow you away. I am doing the read along via her blog too.
- The Guerilla Art Kit by Keri Smith
- ProBlogger by Darren Rowse and Chris Garret
- How to See by George Nelson (thanks to Sarah!)
Good lord i am blabbering.
