Handmade Market Place Giveaway; I want to share with you
~Recently I had the sweet luck to receive a copy of this lovely inspirational and practical read, Handmade Market Place by Kari Chapin. I knew months ago when this book came out that it would enthrall my crafty brain simply based on the contributors alone, those Kari calls her creative collective; Amy Karol( angrychicken), Natalie Zee Drieu(craftzine), Diane Gilleland( craftypod), Jenny Ryan(homeecshop) were just a few of my craft heroes dropping their knowledge on you in this volume of crafty goodness. I was squealy excited when I got my copy and realized it was sprinkled with the loveliest illustrations from Emily Martin(The black apple).
~I could have then been let down pretty easily considering I was expecting crafty biblical experiences from this sweet little paperback. However Kari and her collective do not disappoint. As and overall nut shell explanation of what really made this book stand out for me; It made me super excited about the modern Craft movement and ensured me that I could be a part of it, and showed me exactly how to take part in my own unique way. No matter where anyone is or which direction they are heading on their creative travels this book has some knowledge to extend to you. I want to share this book with one of you lovely readers, cause its the kind of thing you just want to spread around! So leave me a comment telling me why you love to make things. On June 6Th, I will pick a winner to send my copy to....love Y'all to bits
