Today’s post is a bit different than what I usually share, and these could be great gift ideas for those who like to colour and craft. I’m talking about books, more specifically the Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book ($24.99 CAD / $19.99 USD) and the Duct Tape Bags book ($22.99 CAD / $16.99 USD).
Cosmic and Eternal Love: An Everlasting Love Story & Coloring Book
The Cosmic and Eternal Love Coloring Book by Amrita Sen is no ordinary coloring book. Sen weaves a traditional Indian love story into incredibly detailed black and white drawings that makes this book a joy to color. The book also includes a musical CD featuring songs by the artist herself which compliment the classic story. Cosmic and Eternal Love truly engages all of the senses!
This colouring book is full of beautiful pictures and the story gives it something unique from other colouring books. Another unique touch with this book is that it comes with a CD full of songs that complement the love story of the book.
The only colouring tools I have at home are extra fine tipped Sharpies and although the pages of the book have a nice thickness to them, they’re not thick enough for the Sharpies and they bled through. So choose your crayons/markers wisely.
You can check out pages from the book, and listen to and download the music on Amrita Sen’s site Cosmic and Eternal Love. There you’ll also find the other items from her collection like bath & body, candles, jewelry, and more!
Duct Tape Bags: 40 Projects for Totes, Clutches, Messenger Bags, and Bowlers
From the author of the #1 best-sellers, Tape It & Make It, Tape It & Make More and Tape It & Wear It comes the fourth book in this revolutionary “duct tape craft series:” Duct Tape Bags: 40 Projects for Totes, Clutches, Messenger Bags, and Bowlers (Clarkson Potter, July 2016). With the release of her new book, Richela Fabian Morgan is continuing to take the crafting and fashion world by storm, turning the humble roll of duct tape into the trendiest craft item since glitter glue.
The crafter in me got all giddy with this book! I mean, crafting AND bags/purses! I bought all the supplies I need to make a bag, but have yet to find the time to make one. #mommyproblems #bloggerproblems However, I’m all ready to go once I do get some free time!
With 40 bags there are options for everything and everyone, and I want to make so many of them! You do need some extra supplies, like silver magnetic clasps (I bought these ones on Amazon). Every project lists everything that you will need – obviously! 🙂 The book is very detailed and easy to follow.
Are these books you’d be interested in, or someone you know?
