|Emily and Martha make dolls!|
|by Kari Chapin|
Kari Chapin: A very talented and fresh writer, Kari Chapin has opened up a world of handmade incite like never before through her first book The Handmade Marketplace. Her style of writing draws you in and makes you say "I could totally do that!". I love the way that this book collaborates with other "big name" crafters and etsy staff to bring us a well rounded and person look into the handmade world!
When I went to Barnes and Noble to research this book and other books like it I could not set this book aside. I read for over an hour and my leg started to fall asleep! I hope to sell enough stuff at the shop this week to be able to buy this book- I want to highlight the heck out of it and turn page corners!! The other thing that I love about this book is that Emily Martin did the artwork all through out (my two favorites in one place...sigh)!!

The next amazing book I love, because it has a hands on feel about it is Craft Inc. and the Craft Inc. Business Planner. The author Meg Mateo Ilasco helps you learn how to turn your favorite crafts into revenue! Meg is great because she has done so many things and is experienced in helping others like us achieve our goals! I cannot wait to get my hands on the the business planner and learn how to handle the money side of my online store!!
