Giveaway Goodies Arrived!

Here is my stash from CraftGossip.com.

1.Fiskars Duck Edition Scissors
Two pairs of scissors from Fiskars that are designed to cut duct tape.  They repel stickiness. One is for cutting long strips and the other for details, for those who do artwork with duct tape.  I had no idea such scissors existed, but I do know what it is like to try to get sticky stuff off of scissors, so I am looking forward to trying them out.

2. Book Art Studio Handbook by Stacie Dolin and Amy Lapidow
This book is for the serious book maker.  It’s very practical with lots of step-by-step instructions and photos.  I’m going to see if I can adapt some of the techniques to upcycling.

3.How to Make 100 Ribbon Embellishments: Trims, Rosettes, Sculptures, and Baubles for Fashion, Decor, and Crafts by Elaine Schmidt
  This book has everything from trim and embellishments for clothes to bows for packages and dainty ribbon sculptures.  There are even some necklaces.  I’m hoping to make cloth gift bags to sell at some craft fairs this fall, so I’m excited to see if I can come up with some fancy rosettes to decorate them with.

To Stef at CraftGossip.com—muchas gracious!
