Do you love being crafty and creative, but sometimes hit a creative wall and have nowhere to turn? Here are 5 books that will help you jump over that wall immediately!

Actually, these books were some of my biggest inspirations for my AW2011/12 collection, which will be out next month!

PATCHWORK STYLE by Suzuko Koseki
Super cool Japanese craft style book with 35 simple projects for a cozy & colorful life.
Filled with a ton of inspiring images and super easy step by step tutorials.

FACEHUNTER by Yvan Rodic
362 images to get inspired by. The street is your catwalk says it all.

ZAKKA SEWING byTherese Laskey & Chika Mori
Another Japanese style book, filled with 25 projects that feature very inspiring images and easy, step by step tutorials.

Finde deinen Style (Find your Style) by Moewig
This book is a serious inspiration overload. Filled with styling tips from well know bloggers like Style Bubble, The Coveted, Sea of Shoes, and more. And the good thing, even if you don't speak German, you will love it, because its mostly pictures!

This is a super cute book filled with inspirational mini quilts and step by step tutorials.

I hope you find as much inspiration in these books as I have.
