Good craft and Art books

Yesterday I found some great books at the library, my home away from home. Yes, sigh, I am a book nerd. I love them, can't live without them. But anyway , Here is a list you all might like:

1. Picture Sourcebook For Collage and Decoupage, Edited by Edmund V. Gillion. Jr.

2. Creating Cards with Scrapbook Embellishments, by Mary Jo McGraw

3. The Complete Book of Papercrafts , Published by Hermes House
This is an awesome book, it has over 300 projects in it!

4. The Country Diary Book of Crafts , by Annette Mitchell
This book has some beautiful graphics in it, and rag doll patterns, crochet, cross- stitch, etc.

5. New ways in Collage, by Mary Jane Mayer and Mary Webb
This is actually an older book, but it has some really neat stuff in it.

6. The Complete Book of Candles, By Gloria Nicol
I have 3 of her projects at the bottom of the page.

I hope these will inspire your creative juices to flow. They have mine. We are making the paper mache pear today. I am really excited to see how it turns out. Have a blessed day.

About Me

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.

Though I am surrounded by troubles, my God will preserve me against the anger of my enemies. He will clench His fist against my angry enemies! His Power will save me. The Lord will work out His plans for my life- for His faithful love endures forever.
