Books to Give

Books makes such lovely, timeless gifts! And, of course, there are books on every subject under the sun for every reader. I have gathered together a few reading lists to make your shopping a little easier.

A Book that Takes Its Time

Last year my sister-in-law gave me A Book that Takes Its Time. She had no way of knowing that it was exactly what I needed at the time. I was feeling stuck, uninspired, and disconnected from my creativity. So, I have spent the last year working through this fantastic book, and I don’t feel stuck any more. A Book That Takes Its Time is filled with articles by experts on creativity and mindfulness as well as exercises designed to help you find that creative center within each of us.

I have turned my copy into an art journal — doing the exercises and then journaling within the pages as well. It has been a remarkable journey for me, and I’ve written about my process. The link is below.

This is a fabulous gift for the creative people in your life. You never know who might need a little boost just like I did! Thanks, Nadia!
