I have new books!
I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to most things especially books and especially crafty books. I have lots and lots to do with jewellery making and polymer clay. One day I hope to have a big library room to store them all in on big tall book cases. :)
This Christmas I received another four to add to my collection!
Jewellery- Fundamentals of metalsmithing by Tim McCreight. I am currently teaching myself some metalsmithing techniques such as soldering so I love this kind of reference books.
Polymer Clay- Colour inspirations by Lindly Haunani & Maggie Maggio. I work with polymer clay a lot with both my cake toppers and my jewellery and this books has lots of exercises to help you get comfortable with colour mixing and combination's etc.
Dolls' House- Shops, Cafes & Restaurants. I love miniatures and lately I have been geting quite interested in Dolls' Houses so this was a welcomed present.
The Polymer Clay Cookbook by Jessica & Susan Partain. I love miniature food and for dolls' houses and this is something I want to try and make at some point. Jessica & Susan have an Etsy Shop
called Inedible Jewelry which features some amazing pieces, I own the bacon and egg post earrings, love it!
These should keep me busy for a while. Speaking of books, today I downloaded my first Audio book "The Road" by Cormack McCarthy. Even though I have a lot of books I don't have that much time to read them as I always feel I should be working on new designs instead so now I get the best of both worlds. Working while "reading" :)
