Day 29: Five Excellent Books, and a DIY Project

There are so many of us in my family, and that is a very good thing. We draw names at Christmas and that is also quite excellent—especially since my sweet sister-in-law, Lisa, ended up with me.

Here’s my Christmas Haul. (Thanks, Lisa.)

I don’t even have to open a book to feel joy. I just sit and look at the stack and smile.

As if that’s not enough, Lisa pulled together all the things I need to complete a project in Grace Bonney’s Design Sponge at Home and included them in a ziplock bag, as a part of the gift. How thoughtful—and how fun—is that? Like getting batteries included.

Here’s the video for that project in case you want to DIY.

It is going to be a very Happy New Year, indeed.
