Crafting a Meaningful Home PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Crafting a Meaningful Home free pdf Crafting a Meaningful Home is a collection of approximately 25 DIY decorating/craft projects that celebrate the personal stories, heritage and treasured memories of their makers. The text covers both the story behind each project featured as well as step-by-step instructions so that readers can recreate their own versions of these projects. For example, a San Francisco couple tracks their romance by artfully framing notes they have shared since meeting. A stationery designer presents family silhouettes- a children's wear designer shares her button Christmas garland (made out of buttons inherited from a grandmother, scavenged as a child and picked up during her world travels)- and two best friends and co-owners of the Los Angeles boutique Reform School present a tepee for their kids made out of a vintage quilt.
