2011 gift guide: books on crafts gifting someone of the crafster variety this year? how about a book on their craft? or maybe one on how to sell it or taking pictures of it? i personally own eight out of ten of these books (a bit of an obsession?) and can vouch on how truly wonderful they are. chock-full of useful information, you or your recipient will surley leave full of inspiration and better equipped to take on the world of craftiness!

p.s. do you have any favorite crafty books?

holiday gift wrap round up

November 18, 2011

Posted by in christmas

i’m already getting all jittery over christmas time, and i’m so excited to start gift shopping and getting ready for the holidays. each year i try to do something different with my wrapping paper. you know, something that’s signature. something that doesn’t even need to have a ‘from: bonnie’ sticker on it, ’cause they just know it’s from me! one year it was newspaper (embellished, of course!), another year i attached big glittery letters that represented the recipients first name. i haven’t quite decided on what i’ll do this year yet, but i’m either going to buy some beautiful handmade paper or do something diy style (see some ideas at the bottom of this post!). what about you?
