a new book to add to my collection.....

my birthday was exactly 4 wks. & 6 days ago, I turned the twenty-four age. Its a good age, no problem so far! Just enjoying life. Along with that, today I went to Borders and finally used my birthday gift card on this magical book.
Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft, and Design. Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl.

I'm telling you, I'm pretty excited about this.

For the next few days on my lunch break, I'll encounter readings about the craft world, which I've always been part of. I don't know much of the, so to speak "craft-world", but growing up with my mom being a seamstress/fashion designer. I think I have been involved with it long enough to say I'm part of that little world.

things i love most about it:
-diy, do-it-yourself. no, if's or butts. you do it, and if its crafty enough to be called it, you've done it. you've created.
a masterpiece that is. right?

other reasons.......
1.) i love how it (it refers to the 'craft world') embraces traditional & non-traditional ideas of creating
2.) handmade
3.) fun
4.) fluffy, playful, colorful
