Gift Guide 2012: For The Crafty Girl

Our final gift guide of the season answers the one question we most frequently receive in our inbox: what are some essential items every DIYer should have in their craft closet? Well, here are some things that might inspire future projects, some tools that make DIYing easier, and a couple of sharp and chic accessories!


Electric Pablo

Life Magazine has released a series of photographs from the 1949 collaboration between Pablo Picasso and Gjon Mili, the pioneer of stroboscopic light in photography. I’m familiar with the iconic photograph of Picasso and his centaur, but was never able to fully grasp the inventive technique until now. It’s hard to believe that Picasso’s passing strokes, made with just a small electric light, came together so skillfully and were captured so brilliantly on film.


Chic Chalet

This two year renovation project of a 1870 structure is the work of Beligian decorator Lionel Jadot and is located in the town of Megéve of the French Alps. Filled with treasures from all over the world and decorated with European elements, like the Bisazza tiled kitchen, this eclectic rustic home is the perfect winter hideaway.
