9 books creative women will want to read

i don't know what's going on, but i have more books on my amazon wishlist than ever before.  none of the following books have been released but they look so good i'm pretty much going to pre-order all of them and eat mac and cheese from a box for the rest of the month.  happily.

  • your inner critic is a big jerk by danielle krysa //   i love danielle (the jealous curator).  her first two books (collage and creative block) are staples on a lot of artists' bookshelves. 
  • in the company of women by grace bonney // this can't come soon enough.  so many inspiring women on these pages.  i want it now!
  • ladies drawing night by julia rothman, leah goren and rachael cole // all star cast.  ladies.  getting together.  drawing.  yes. 
  • the girl with a lower back tattoo by amy schumer // ummm, i love her.  i admire her truthiness.
  • scrappy little nobody by anna kendrick // she's hilarious and i want to be friends with her but i'm a little intimidated by her quick wit.
  • on the loom: a modern weaver's guide by maryanne moodie // i love, love, love her weavings on instagram, and she has such a soothing manner of teaching.  (i bought the crafter's box where maryanne taught rya weaving.)
  • DIY woven art : by rachel denbow // another weaving book because i'm totally obsessed right now.  and i've followed rachel on her blog for a million years and she has always has great DIYs.
  • Run Fast. Eat Slow.  by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky // whole foods. yummy recipes (i've tasted a couple and they are amazing!)  and oh yeah, shalane is a 4 TIME OLYMPIAN and is a member of the bowerman track club that trains here in portland.  my kids run for the youth division of bowerman track club and i have to tell you the coaches and elite athletes helping the team  are really good people.  
  • draw every day, draw every way by jennifer orkin lewis (aka august wren) // we all know i'm a fan of every day projects.  and i'm a huge fan of jennifer!  she's as nice in person as her art is online!
