p.s. I made this.

Last week, I was treated to a lovely little Christmas surprise from my maid of honor, {ch}. I get a boatload of packages for work...so, when I first received the brown padded envelope, I just added it to my work pile. A few hours of organizing later, I saw her name in the corner of the package and I obviously ripped it open!

Inside I found this absolute gem of a book she and I had seen 
during our kate spade adventure the weekend before

P.S. - I made this... by Erica Domesek

I loved the style of this book when I first saw it with {ch}...it has easy-to-digest craft projects with lots of fun flair. Some of it is my style, some of it isn't--but I love how Erica Domesek explains them with fabulous pictures and witty captions.

I haven't made anything out of the book yet--but you better believe I will be once the craziness of the holidays cools down. Here's a little video clip of the author with everyone's favorite crafter, Martha:


The author even shares an inspiration board behind each project, which I thought was pretty neat! Here's an example from the "big ball necklace" project she did on Martha's show:

Once I get through a few projects, I'll be sure to share the results. If you ever need a last minute gift for a crafty friend or DIY-er, P.S. - I made this... is sure to be a winner. Or--better yet--grab yourself the book and make a few gifts of your own! Do you have any other go-to gifts for your crafty friends? Even though the holidays have passed, it's always good to have some ideas on the back burner for birthdays!


Thanks again to {ch} for the fabulous and thoughtful gift :) 
Have a great night! xoxo {av}
