And Now For Something Completely Peaceful

The kids are back in school! Whee! Now the opportunity to turn toward peaceful zen-inducing pursuits. And RestonFriends1, our on-line presence, has just the things.

Sherrill Kahn presents readers with another of her beautiful books that inspire as well as teach. In today's economy, many will be looking for a different outlet for holiday gift-giving. This book, Creative Embellishments: For Paper, Jewelry, Fabric and More, will transform your gift of time into art work. This copy appears to never have been used and sells for $16.50 at our site.

Jewelry making has become quite the rage for those with an eye for design and creativity. This book, Beading With Crystals: Beautiful Jewelry, Simple Techniques, will help you unleash the designer in you!
Or better yet, this book, plus a 'starter package' of beads and supplies from a craft store would be an excellent gift for a teen. It gets good reviews from people who make jewelry themselves. Our copy is $14.

And finally, Erica Wilson's Needlepoint: Adapted from Objects in the Collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will inspire all needlepointers, from the newbie to the most experienced. There are 17 new projects, each inspired by art and objects in the Met's collection. The graphics charts get particularly high praise from needlepointers commenting on
Amazon. Our copy is $26.

So get creative, and get busy! As always, if you're a current local member and are interested in one of these books sans postage, contact us via e-mail and we'll arrange your purchase.
