Book Review

Kim from Daisy Cottage left a comment on my post about my studio asking if I had read this book and it reminded me that I had never shared my thoughts on this book with you. I absolutely loved it! I wanted to just crawl into this book and create things I had never considered creating before. It was so inspiring. I hadn't even realized our very creative friend, Charlotte was in this book. I think I had initially read this book before I discovered her and her blog. What fun to peak into her studio. I love seeing where all of you do your projects. It is such a treat.




And this book. Wow. It is so inspiring. I love her style. I wanted to try just about every project in this book. I can't decide which to try first and you should check out her website too. In my dreams would I ever have talent like this. I highly recommend it.
Happy Reading!

  2. I got that book for Christmas! I love it, except it makes me want to completely redo my scrap room.
    Which by the way I posted my photo just minutes ago. Don't get goo excited. I doubt they'll be calling me for a book. :)

  5. I've got "Where Women Create" as a christmas present for my sis who is a collage artist and she loves it, of course I have read it before and I love it too, it's very inspiring! I can imagine Anna Corba's book being beautiful too, I like her artwork very much!

  9. I borrowed the first book from a friend and absolutely love it as well. Charlotte also has a book called Between Friends that I've had for years. It's sweet. I haven't seen that other one but I'll be on the lookout now!

  14. Gosh, they both look like beautiful books. I especially want the 'Where women create' one although I have a feeling it will make me feel a little envious. But also very inspired. I think I need to pay a visit to Amazon straight away!
