i try not to impulse shop. really, i do — i can be pretty frugal. but sometimes, i fail…
when i was in manhattan in early october, i met cindy at kinokuniya, the japanese bookstore. and all logic apparently stayed outside on sixth avenue, because i certainly don’t bring it into the bookstore with me.
i bought a book based on its front cover, but once i had the opportunity to sit down and really go through it, i realized it wasn’t for me. natural handmade goods idea book is beautiful, and comes with a CD that contains photoshop element files that you can use to create the projects featured in the book, and a 2nd CD that appears to have photoshop elements 6.0 for windows.
the projects are super-cute! but not me. also, it’s in japanese, so you’ll need to think a little harder than normal to follow along. but it’ll be worth it!
so, leave me a comment to give this book a good home. and to make it fun, leave me a comment about your worst impulse buy. spill it! i have no social life right now while i prep goods for the holidays, so give me some good stuff to laugh at. i will have my pal, random number generator, pick the winner next wednesday (november 10) morning, around 6:30am central time.
