it's time to DIY... crafty book ideas!
if you're searching for the perfect holiday gift for the book-loving artist in your life, seek no further. here at Pink Olive, we have a selection of fun arts and crafts books for children and adults alike.
for the crafty child, try deborah zemke's doodles at dinner, a book of 36 place mats with line-by-line instructions for drawing animals and objects so your budding artist can learn and entertain herself at the table (while keeping your tablecloth intact!) or cuddle up with art by patrick mcdonnell, a unique meditation on a boy and his creations, made both thoughtful and thrilling by its illustrations full of splashed paint and crayon scribbles.
for artistic adults, take a look at last minute knitted gifts by joelle hoverson, bursting with beautiful photographs and instructions on knitting anything from stuffed animals to silk camisoles.
pair it with meg mateo ilasco's craft inc: turn your creative hobby into a business and you've given your loved one (or yourself) not only a gift but also some fantastic ideas for an artistic career!
happy gift hunting!
