Hidden flame, Sewing green, Thrifty, Crafting a business, French-inspired home
Hidden flame by T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke is the second in a series. It is a nice, enjoyable book, set in the years shortly after Jesus' death and resurrection.
Sewing green : 25 projects made with repurposed & organic materials : plus tips & resources for earth-friendly stitching by Betz White. I LOVED this book! Some really cute projects and lots of neat ideas using old fabric and scraps plus tips on finding great stuff in thrift stores. Also includes information on a number of very eco-friendly small businesses and organizations. I have five bookmarks stuck in this book to mark projects that I'd like to make.
Thrifty : living the frugal life with style by Marjorie Harris was informative and interesting, but I liked Live your life for half the price better.
Crafting a business : make money doing what you love by Kathie Fitzgerald is a useful book for anyone who wants tips for starting a craft business. Lots of nice pictures and profiles of other craft businesses.
French-inspired home by Kaari Meng is a lovely book. I was hoping more for decorating ideas, whereas this is a collection of small French-inspired projects. I've only got one bookmark in this book.
