Zakka Embroidery by Yumiko Higuchi
I adore these modern embroidery designs and the variety of projects in this book. The motifs are created with only one or two colors of thread, which makes for such a lovely look. I also appreciate the smaller size of the book, as it’s easy to pop in your bag for an on-the-go craft.
Neighborhood by Hetty McKinnon
Being the salad fiend I am, this book fills my vegetable-loving heart. How wonderful to be able to cook so many one-dish salads inspired by various regions around the world. Three cheers for hearty salads as a main meal! And Hetty’s huge smile always makes me smile too.
The Artful Parent by Jean Van't Hul
This gorgeous book is such a rich resource for all things relating to creativity and children. Not only will you love the approachable ideas for how to bring fun and inspiring projects into your family, but you’ll also love the creative side it brings out in you! I’m personally loving the shadow art project.
Handmade Gatherings by Ashley English
A meal is surely enhanced by the setting in which it is eaten and who it’s shared with. I love how this beautiful book not only provides wonderful, seasonal recipes, but also inspires me to add meaningful, thoughtful, handmade touches to really make a meal into an experience to remember.
Little Bites by Christine Chitnis
How fun to be able to hand my son or daughter this delightful cookbook and ask them to pick a recipe for us to make that looks exciting to them, knowing whatever they choose will be healthy and easy for us to make. My daughter loved this book so much that she made her own version of Little Bites for a class project (giving credit to the authors of course!).
