I love books... I really love books... and craft books.... well they hold a special place in my heart. I love seeing the pictures, the new techniques, and there is very little that I don't want to try.
But. Here is a secret... I don't seem to make the time to work through many of the fabulous books I have on hand.
If you are anything like me, you have accumulated quite the collection. So I have come up with the antidote. The Collage Cafe is going to create a monthly book club. But this one has a unique twist. The books we will review will be our beloved craft/maker/artsy books. And we won't just review the books.... we will dig in and together decide which one of the fabulous techniques we'd like to try that month. Then, as a group we will dive right in and teach ourselves and each other the great techniques! I can't wait. If this sounds fun, go ahead and leave me a comment or send me an email and I will be sure to send you information when we are ready to launch.
What is one of your favorite craft books that you've never read....?
I have been getting this question more and more lately. It makes sense. With a name like The Collage Cafe one would think that is exactly what I am doing. However.... no.... The Collage Cafe is not a restaurant (although at any given time, there will be plenty of wine on hand, and if we run out, just down the block is my favorite wine store, The Wine Goddess.
So here it is.... I am a mixed media artist and transformational change expert. In January I left corporate America (a job I loved, by the way). My goal is to take all that was good and wonderful in that chapter and bring it forward into my next.
I am opening a space that will allow me to conduct playshops, workshops, create art and combine it with an eclectic retail space.... I will also have the space to coach individuals and groups so they (you) too, can have your dreams take flight.
What's your big dream? How can I help you take a step into your dream?
Living a joy*filled life is a top priority. Here I will share what I learn along the way.
