Craft Day! I was walking down that little alleyway--you know, if you walk from the Metreon to Market Street, between Third and Fourth street, and manage to resist Beard Papa's? I guess the cross-street is Mission, but it's more toward Market than that. There's a little bitty museum there, and they had this in the window. Certainly justified, as it was the Museum of Craft and Folk Art, and this book is full of artists getting their craft on. I'm a creative person and I like making gifts for people; but I am so not a fan of decorated Kleenex cozies. The ideas in here were much, much better.
Etsy has everything, from modern to vintage in art, jewelry, clothing etc. I can spend hours browsing the links and shops of individual designers and entrepreneurs. I receive inspiration each time I visit.
What a great, simple, easy gift to give someone. Plus, it would be so easy to customize for individual gifts.
This is one of the best mags!
Gorgeous, inspiring, expertly coordinated craft supplies from the master craftster herself!
