Yesterday, I wrote about us selling our house and that the search is now on for our next home. Our current home is a big-ass house with more space than 2 people will EVER need! I am so looking forward to living in a "normal" size home again! In that vein, I have been cleaning and organizing my studio like there is no tomorrow! I have been re-organizing my bookshelves too! Afterall, there are only so many books a person can read! So, I decided to give some of my books new homes. I will be giving away some of my books for the remainder of summer. I will give away 1 book a week and include shipping. Each week, I will pose a question. Give me your take on the subject. At the end of the week, I will pick a winner. These are some of the books I plan to give away. Also, I will have 2 "surprise" books that I will give away mid-September. All books are new and in excellent condition. In my next post, I will have this week's topic.
"The Art of Fabric Books" by Jan Bode Smiley deals with creating books and journaling with fabric. "The Art of Resin Jewelry" by Sherri Haab deals with designing and creating jewelry out of resin.

"Organizing Your Craft Space" by Jo Packham illustrates how best to utilize your work space.

"Paper Quilting" by Bridget Hoff deals with quilting, collaging, and utilizing found objects by using paper as a "canvas".

"Quilted Memories" by Leslie Riley illustrates how to journal, scrapbook, and create keepsakes by using fabric. "Secrets of Rusty Things" by Michael de Meng illustrates how to incorporate found objects into new pieces of art.
