i got my copy of handmade nation this week in the mail and it is so inspiring! i've carried it everyday with me to and from work pouring over the pages, thinking of all i want to make and the many craft nights i want to plan. the book is beautiful. it's vibrating with color, craft, D.I.Y., creativity and so many great spotlights of people who are out creating and following their dream (so many of our favorites). kate bingaman-burt drew all the illustrations and lettering for the book. the above photos are kate's and were used from her flickr stream.
i just can't say enough good things about this book. i am so inspired by faythe levine, one of the co-writers behind the book (and the lady behind the documentary of the same name), her drive and incredible ability to pull all of this together is hands down AMAZING. she's a dynamo for sure.
i bought an extra book that i would like to give away on the blog. it's so good i want to share it, plus do all i can to support such a wonderful project. so you know how to do it...just leave a comment, the winner will be chosen on monday morning.
if you can't wait til then, you can buy the book here. also check out the etsy store which is full of lots of good stuff. to find out much more about the book and the documentary check out the website. have an awesome weekend!
