In my lifetime (so far) I have been lucky enough to know, and be inspired by, some extremely talented people. First there was Kara, the girlfriend of Zach's college roommate. I never knew Kara too closely, but I've always admired and been in awe of her incredible creativity. Not only is she the mastermind (and worker bee) behind her thriving handbag design enterprise, she is also gifted in the areas of cooking, baking (made our wedding cake, 5 years ago, best I've ever tasted), interior design, etc etc etc.
And then, I met Jessica. Jessica who writes. And takes amazing photographs. And makes beautiful art while bored watching TV. Jessica, who is now selling her handmade bookmark books, which are not only a brilliant idea but also absolutely precious and adorable. I almost don't want to post the link because I want to buy them all for myself, but I don't think my wallet would like that very much. So I've bought 2, and urge you to go there and check out the rest, because I don't expect these puppies to last very long before they're all gone.
