I have known Blair Stocker a long time, since our earliest days of blogging, and am so happy to have receieved a review copy of Wise Craft: Turning Thrift Store Finds, Fabric Scraps, and Natural Objects Into Stuff You Love. Blair's blog, wise craft has always been a great source of inspiration and this book has all that wise craft love in it. She has a great eye and knows how to have fun with creating, which I really appreciate.
This project will have me crocheting. I mean it.
Blair is so good at using found/thrifted items in her projects.
The chapters are by seasons, which I love. I wish more craft books did this, it works so well in cookbooks, it's genius to have a craft book organized this way. This is the Spring chapter. So minimal and pretty but not too serious—that's wise craft all the way.
And becasue Halloween is my favorite holiday, I zoned right in on her fall projects and love them to death.
Zombie barbies. I don't need to say anything else.
Of all the blog people I have met over the years, and I am so happy to have met so many, Blair is probably the funniest. I mean, crazy, stand-up comedian style funny. I wish she lived in Portland, but I shouldn't complain because Seattle isn't that far, really.
