Wallpaper Projects: On My Wish List!

Speaking of books, I added Wallpaper Projects: More than 50 Craft and Design Ideas for Your Home, from Accents to Art to my wish list last night. Doesn’t this look like a great read? It’s by Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith who are co-owners of the Curiosity Shoppe and have a blog called Smarts and Crafts.

It showcases, “Contemporary and vintage patterns, plus instructions for over 50 wallpaper projects ranging from quick scrap crafts (book covers) to more involved design upgrades (headboards) to big impact makeovers (walls, window shades).” You can pre-order a copy here at Chronicle Books. The book will release sometime in April.

Love Book

I’m so proud of Samantha Hahn because she pulled together some of her friends and created a book called Love Book which she has made available through Blurb. You can purchase a copy if you’d like for $16.95. Inside you will find the work of many talented men and women, you’ll even find a drawing of mine! Samantha’s project gave me a much needed push to pull out my pencils and watercolors and go to work and I had a lot of fun doing it.

Curated, published and designed by me (Samantha Hahn). 24 artists with a distinct style and voice were given the theme “love” and set free to interpret it visually or in writing. The outcome expresses both singularity and uniqueness.We all see love differently and yet much in the same way. We’re connected through love and art.

Hannah Stouffer, Lilly Piri, Aaron Hogg, Lisa Butterworth, Dan Funderburgh, Samantha Hahn, Erin Loechner, Jesse Breytenbach, Kate Miss, Jessica Gonacha, Kelly Lynn Jones, Yasmine Surovec, Shira Sela, Matthew and Sandy Lynn Davis (Treatzone), Maditi, Amy Sahba, Ez Pudewa, Hijiri Shepherd, Marisa Haedike, Lisa Congdon, Holly Becker, Kate Neckel, Katie Sokoler & Kate Bingaman Burt are all part of this very special book.

Psst: You can view pages from Love Book here.
