If you are a regular reader here you know I love my graphic design books as much as I love my craft books as they are a jam-packed wealth of creativity. Today I have a bit of graphic design featured in the book The Best of News Design 32nd Edition that contains two great ideas!
The first idea is the re-purposing of a spool of thread into a hanger. What a great use for an old wooden spool of thread that is not up to the task of holding a seam together any longer! The other idea is that classic nail art craft to form letters.
If you are like me and are into graphic design books for inspiration check out the Rockport book:
