Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Living Out Loud: Activities to Fuel a Creative Life

Living Out Loud - 'Keri Smith',  'Keri (Author/Illustrator) Smith' I love Keri Smith. Her books are such joyful invitations to create every day and to live an authentic life of expression. I think this is one of her first publications in what has now become kind of her own "genre." I recognize the seeds of ideas in this book that went on to sprout entire books on that topic later on. So, I think because I have read her more recent stuff first, this seemed a little jumbled to me - as she is trying to squeeze a lot of ideas into one book. But that being said, it is so sweet, and full of funny "assignments." The illustration is also stellar, as all her books. If you are just wading into the idea of creating something every day, this is a sweet book to check out. And if you haven't visited her website, GO THERE. It is so much fun.
