Grace Bonney and me

In the few spare moments I sometimes have to peruse something that is not project- or homework-related readings, I have been absorbing Grace Bonney's wonderful new home and DIY and all-around inspirational book, based off the blog she created and edits, Design*Sponge.

I told her I love the headboard she made for her own room, and that I wish to make my own as soon as I can afford to put more money into my own bed/frame/headboard situation, and she said, "Oh, if I can make it, you certainly can, I'm not that crafty." Uh, ma'am? You created Design*Sponge. There's at least a little crafty in you.
