Books and Books and Books

I went to Borders yesterday to use a gift card that I purchased as a Christmas present for my dad. He was in such a panic that the Borders in Springfield, IL closed, that he gave me back his giftcard and told me to use it on something for Jack. Well, I did get Jack two books: classics/childhood faves- Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. I also picked up a couple business books for myself! Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin. Great so far, and I have barely put a dent in it! And, The Idiots Guide To Selling Your Crafts. Also, very good so far. Super informative and just what I have been looking for to answer ALOT of my questions about this business. I had to throw in one "fun" book too! The Bag Making Bible by Lisa Lam. Lisa is the owner and founder of U-Handbag, an online supply store, bag making blog and handbag haven! She rocks!

If you or someone you know is going into business to pursue their love of crafts, BEST OF LUCK and check out these books. Also, tell us about some books you may love!
