The Creative Tarot by Jessa Crispin

The book, The Creative Tarot by Jessa Crispin is a wonderful new way to use Tarot cards for a reading. It'll change the ordinary layout to an answer seeking spread, which will help guide you with new ideas and maybe improve in your skills and plans for all types of projects. It might seem strange because it uses a whole different take on reading the cards, but it really is a great new way to figure out life and finding those answers to tricky questions that you need for work, hobbies and just any thing you might be doing.

First off, the book is great for those interested in Tarot and want to try working the cards to help seek some new inspiration in their lives. Maybe, if your struggling and need a little guidance, than this could even help you with that too! The best part is that you can start using this book even if you have no idea how to use the cards and just starting out. The book actually will guide you to what Tarot is and how to use the cards and understand them. So the book would definitely be considered a great guide to understanding Tarot and even learning a new way to use it. The benefits of the reading could be helpful with creativity, productivity, and even just spark new thoughts and plans. 

Now for my opinion, this is  not like any typical book on Tarot I've read before, which is why I love it so much! It's different and a very well written guide to influence and help you build on new and creative ideas, sparks and changes that could help you feel joy in life, change the way things are looked at and maybe even get over that block in your path. When you read this book, it will give you the most helpful ways to use the Tarot cards in a few of the original spreads to find what you really need or might want to do to improve. It could be something you do already or maybe taking on a new project and succeeding further than you thought you could. Sometimes, life can feel like it goes in circles. Everything is the same, nothing new comes along and life goes on. However, I feel that taking a change in the way or perspective of things can really influence a new path for me. That is exactly how I felt with this book! It not only taught me a new way to read the cards or find out answers, but leave me with ideas and give me a boost to the things I do and how to improve.
I feel I get a great vibe and feeling of inspiration to design new things, change up my ordinary day and take on new opportunities, with the guidance that the results of the reading I get from the cards.  I feel so far that this has really been helpful and made my days feel new and enjoyable to wake up too! Therefore, I am so impressed with the author's great work on writing this book and the information is just wonderful!
By the way, this book will be available on the 16th of February and if you are visiting or live in Washington DC, she will be signing copies of The Creative Tarot.

ArtCards: Accessorize Author: Jenny Broom Illustrator: Hennie Haworth

The book, Accessorize by Author Jenny Broom and Illustrator Hennie Haworth is another book that I admire, since I have love'd their book Fashion. It is just a lovely illustrated book and very useful for those interested in becoming a Fashion Designer or just want inspiration for new clothing style ideas. For me, that is just what this book give me, inspiration! I can create and make some fun designed items for my dolls, which I've been trying to create fashion accessories and this book has given me some fabulous ones to use. Plus, for kids they can enjoy using the stickers to dress up the characters inside the book.
I do love the beautiful photos and many stickers inside, but the decorative ideas and use for different creative looks are very useful for creating and developing my own ideas. It gives me the influence I need to combine my own looks in any type of art, even learning to just draw. However, this can be just a great book for the little girls in your life or even teenagers, they always love to pair their own clothing and it's so eye catching with the colors and the use of stickers! 
Inside, there are so many different hats, bags, sunglasses and so much more! So for a child's book this is packed with so many styles and lovely accessories you can use to decorate or make use of in any way possible. I definitely can only see this to be a wonderful way to influence creativity and just for love to enjoy this gorgeous book! Therefore, I highly recommend this for any young inspiring Fashion Designer or anyone who enjoys fashion.

Artcards: Fashion Author: Jenny Broom Illustrator: Hennie Haworth

The book, Fashion by Jenny Broom and Illustrator Hennie Haworth is a fun way to get your creative juices flowing! This book is meant for children to help them design their own styles and get great ideas from the ones in this book. However, it can just be used to place each sticker, which is included of beautifully colored designed clothing to place on the cards large card, pages inside.
I absolutely love the different styles and the gorgeous looks that you can combine to create your own style. I find it to be a great way try to copy each picture, so the book will last long and doodle my own designs or clothing right on the the person. Though, for kids they will love to use the stickers and dress the people in the book!
For fun with these Artcards of Fashion, anyone could be a designer and create their own combo style! Excellent book so much to use it in terms of art and for the great sticker combinations you can put together! I love it, such a great gift or book for young fashion designers! I would finally like to mention this book is very nice board like book, that allows you to be creative and have fun with fashion! Therefore, this book is great for young girls or even teens, and can be used in so many different ways. It's just a fun photo book of ideas and very colorful!
