As promised, today I'm sharing more of my favorites from the Ultimate DIY Bundle. Don't you love that quote from Renee Tougas above? Like I said yesterday, her book really changed how I look at creativity. Let's jump into the rest of the categories of this fabulous bundle.
(You can see what the entire collection includes here.)
- Rebecca Cooper's Printable Photo Checklists are super fun and inspiring.
- I'm trying to learn more about using my camera in manual, so Kristen Duke's Say No to Auto is the perfect guide for me-- I love how she shows photos of what the settings look like on a Canon and a Nikon. And because no matter how many times my brother teaches me something about using my camera I seem to forget, I'll need to read The Spaghetti Shots, too, another great how-to book on using a DSLR (Courtney Westlake also shows both Canon & Nikon).
This section is full of fun printables (such as my friend Melissa Beaver's Scripture Memory Cards and the Kimberly Kalil Designs Collection), and coloring sheets. I'm inspired by the the art journaling by Christine Hiester and the Life According to Me printable journal would be really fun to do with each kiddo.
As you can imagine, this is one of the categories I'm most excited about. I'm really honored to have my book lining the same shelf as some of these other sewistas. I love Alison Glass Designs (the quilt on my bed is made of her fabric and if you like quilting her two patterns included are downright gorgeous.
I definitely hope to make myself Andrea Pannell's Parisian Top and Sew Caroline's Sugar Pop Top. I've made other patterns from both Andrea and Caroline and they are easy to follow and really cute. Okay, let's be honest, I want to make the Sleep Over Tote and the Norah Dress/Tunic, too.
I don't plan to start selling my handmade goods at this time, but if this is something you want to do, this is a great category for you. I'll definitely be reading Pinteresting though and gleaning any wisdom I can from Tabitha Philen. I'm a huge fan of PicMonkey so I can't wait to read Monkey See Monkey Do to see how else I can maximize that photo-editing site.
I've loved A Summer of Stories by Tsh Oxenreider since she released it last summer, and can't wait till Gigi's writing skills improve a bit more to use it-- but in the meantime, I might dig into these prompts myself.
I'm also excited about these other two writing resources, 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts, Volume 2 by Bryan Cohen, and On Becoming a Writer by Denise J. Hughes
Remember the sale goes until Monday at midnight, and it's sure to light a fire under your creative side and give you lots of inspiration and projects for 2015.
