Time To Make, by Ginger Hendrix, is like having a crafting cheerleader, best friend, and personal trainer all rolled up into one little paperback package. This book's goal is to give you that little bump you might need, a sweet little nudge towards a more creative life.
Remember when Ginger stopped in here on the blog, with this awesome post about free motion quilting? (No? Go ahead, take a minute, and read it. I'll wait.) It's still one of my favorite posts. And she took her writing skills and coaching ability and made a real live book. It's full of ideas and discussions and tips for getting your crafting mojo on. No actual projects - it's not that kind of craft book. This is a book to address all of the reasons you aren't as crafty as you could be.
A little about her:
Ginger Hendrix lives and writes and makes things in Morro Bay, CA. She once made a couch cover out of old polyester, once wrote and recorded a CD for kids, once learned to cook by hacking at low-fat magazine recipes (and then just doubling the cheese), once sewed at least 30 aprons out of strange scraps, salvaged old quilts into new ones, and even tried making a lamp out of an old coffee pot. She has been known to teach writing and sewing. She writes the blog Wienerdog Tricks at gingerhendrix.com.
I bought a copy as soon as it came out, and sat right down and read it all. I love her hilarious and quirky and honest style. Here, I'll let her tell you about it herself in her book commercial!
