What We Found at the Library

Last time the Hubs was headed to the library, I asked him to bring me back a book.

He brought home How to Shoot and Sell Animal Photos - as a joke. (Plus, who can say no to yawning kittens? Awww...)


He also checked out the book I was actually looking for, Vintage Paper Crafts by Anna Corba.

I was looking for inspiration for bridal shower centerpieces, and I knew I could find it there.

I've checked out Vintage Paper Crafts before. I think I just stumbled across it the first time, and it's come home with me a time or two since then, as well. (Who knows? I may even buy it someday!)

What I love about it is not so much the explanation of paper crafting methods and techniques (it has a fair amount of that too), but the ideas it inspires for collage art, cards, gifts and scrapbooks. Just flipping through it gets my creative synapses firing!

I'll probably never follow a project from the book step by step to completion (even if I did break down and buy it), but it always brings to mind new possibilities.

...And that's what we found at the library!


  1. Ooooo, just reading about that book gets my creative synapses firing! Adding it to my list!

    Have a great weekend, Stephanie!

  2. Wonderful! I think even the non-crafty me would be inspired by a book full of beautiful paper-art. Because that's basically what they are, right? Art!

    I'm so glad you joined in this week!

  3. I have to agree that the yawning kitties are pretty dang cute.


What do you have to say about that?
