From The Hold Shelf (Or What I'm About To Read)...

"Homemakers: A Domestic Handbook For The Digital Generation" by Brit Morin
From “Silicon Valley’s Martha Stewart” comes a new manifesto for the modern homemaker in the digital age.  

Over the past three generations, the rules of homemaking and our very notions of what a homemaker is and does have radically changed. We are still a nation of makers, but we are crafting and creating beyond the home, in both the analog and digital worlds. And in the next ten years, “making” and “homemaking” will evolve further. Tomorrow’s women will find themselves actually manufacturing everything from decor to clothing, from right inside their homes.  

In Homemakers, Brit Morin, founder of the wildly popular lifestyle brand and website Brit + Co., reimagines homemaking for the twenty-first century. While today’s generation thrives in the virtual world, they like to work and create in the physical world. Morin inspires you to combine the best of analog and digital, to help you reconnect with your inner creative child-the one who used to love to draw, to build, and to play-to make your home a more creative, functional, and beautiful place.  

Full of captivating, colorful spreads, step-by-step DIYs, tips, and unique ideas, Homemakers explores a range of domestic skills room by room in a house, from cooking advice in the kitchen to health and beauty tips in the bathroom. Simple, beautiful, and stylish, it offer ideas for creative living to encourage and enable the digital generation to make.

I'm not gonna lie guys, I'm a terrible person and I don't remember anything about any of the books from my last round of "From The Hold Shelf" back in May. I kinda shuffled through them as my semester was ending and nothing stuck with me. Sorry.


  1. This looks like an interesting book!

    Working at a library must be awesome. I applied for an assitant children's librarian a few months ago and was so dissapointed that I didn't get called for an interview.

    1. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but it does look super interesting.

      Awww I'm sorry you didn't get called. I'm sure you will next time and that if you do get a job in a children's room that you'll love it.
