get your read on…

earlier today i muttered the words “there are a lot of creative people out there” to a friend – this was in response to the fact that there are so many damn cute and creative shops on etsy! whether it’s your work, a friend’s or a stranger’s – handmade is inspiring.

the authors below have the creative gene + are pros at curating it (something i strive for here on little ol’ Howd.i.y).

so… i bring you 4 new handmade books worth checking out (+ some worthwhile stocking stuffers for the crafter in your life!)

oh, happy reading!

    I know I have a crafty side…I’ve had a major itch these days to tap into it. I may have to scratch that itch with the “Make Hey” book. Thanks for the suggestions, Bec. Ps. linked to your blog on my most recent post. Miss you. 🙂
