great food fast - martha stewart

martha stewart food is sometimes too fancy, but i think this book is a little more manageable than most. and dangit all, i know i married a chef and all but i want to learn to cook! hahah

sew u home stretch - wendy mullin

this book is all about sewing knits, like jersy dresses and sweatshirts and things, and i am sooo excited. i've never really sewn knits before and my aunt gave me a serger over thanksgiving, so now i can learn how to use it!

printing by hand - lena corwin

printing by hand - lena corwin

i've always wanted to learn how to print and this book has all kinds of different techniques. and when i saw it at my friend cami's house and went through it page by page, i was sold. printing my own designs on my sheets and pillows and everything in between? yes please.

who needs a job after i graduate when i have all this to keep me busy!?
hahah, right? ;]


  1. Oh, oh. Please use some of your new skills on me?

  2. fun!!! let's have a cooking party. When do you leave? tOO soon!

  3. My Mom has a serger and uses it all the time. You can make fabulous table cloths and curtains super easy.
