It's been SUPER crazy over here at the Mira household. First, I had a surgery yesterday to get a cyst removed from my right leg. It was so huge and really close to my knee, that my husband nicknamed it my "third knee"!! It's all stitched up and now I'm limping... On top of that, we've been rearranging and cleaning these past two weeks in preparation for the twins! I'm now 27 weeks and I'm nesting like a mad-woman! Ellie has her own room now that also serves as the kiddies' playroom! She absolutely LOVES it!! We even got the rocking chair back out in the living room. Guess who's "rocking" it? Why, little Miss Ellie Bellie of course. More details, on the rearrange and such, in future posts.
Since we have been so crazy busy lately, I haven't been able to create, design or craft anything, let alone blog... So reading these books, in between breaks, has kept me feeling inspired! These books depicted below are the books I received for my birthday! Thanks Mom and sis!! I heart them ;-)
1. Like I Give A Frock - Fashion Forecast and Meaningless Misguidance: Written by Michi Girl and Illustrations by Kat Macleod
2. Handmade Type Workshop - Tips, Tools and Techniques for Creating Custom Typography: Written by Charlotte Rivers
3. Fingerprint No. 2 - The Evolution of Handmade Elements in Graphic Design: Written by Chen Design Associates
It was difficult to pick a few favorite spreads cause there were so many I LOVED in each book. I really enjoy design that contains both graphic and hand drawn qualities...that's why these kind of books are so inspiring to me! Do you know any other books in this genre that are a MUST-HAVE? If so, please share! I love me some new inspiration! I received some generous bday gift cards from the hubby that I CANNOT wait to use, too! I feel so spoiled lately ;-) Hmmm...what to use these on...
