Weaving Un-Loomed

Remember when I recommended several craft podcasts recently? The multi-talented Craftypod owner, Diane Gilleland, is the creator of a brand new e-book that looks simply wonderful. Read lots about Weaving Un-Loomed, see pictures of all of the book's projects on her blog, and even download one for free!

This pendant/bracelet speaks to paper lovers like me... I've been wondering how to make these nifty little squares of woven paper so the ends aren't all untucked and fly-away. Diane's tutorial easily solves the mystery.I'm not exaggerating when I say every project is appealing and useful. Something tells me Diane is getting dangerously close to pulling me away from my one track paper mind. Beautifully presented with clear instructions and perfect pictures, there's also the neatest e-book feature I've seen yet... order the entire book or individual projects. And when printing out directions, I like the ink-saving pictureless option.

At the risk of this post sounding like a Diane lovefest / infomercial, I can't help but mention she has another brand new book that will be released on July 21st. Judging a book by its {gorgeous} cover might not be the best idea, but I think we're safe when it's Diane's crafty hands doing the making. Kanzashi in Bloom can be pre-ordered from Amazon. Hmmm, perhaps some of the enticing flower designs can also be created with paper... I'm anxiously awaiting release day to check out what's inside!
