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!
