Pouvez-vous être vraiment honnête lorsque personne ne vous regarde ?

Dans un renversement de tendance, Burn After Writing vous encourage à ne rien partager. Avec ses questions incisives, ce journal intime vous met au défi de jouer à un jeu d'action ou vérité avec vous-même. Repoussez vos limites, réfléchissez à votre passé, à votre présent et à votre futur, et créez un livre secret qui parle de vous, rien que pour vous.
Et lorsque vous aurez terminé, jetez-le, cachez-le... ou brûlez-le après l'avoir écrit.

Mending Life is a beautifully illustrated, practical tool kit for repairing the clothes and belongings we love. It is also an exploration of how mending can be a gently healing practice in our daily lives and a small act of rebellion in a world where many things are discarded without thought. Mending Life encourages us to cherish our things by repairing them rather than discarding them. It also encourages us to change our consumption habits so that with small mends here and there, we extend the life of our garments and other household items. This handbook is for beginners but also offers more advanced techniques to those with some experience in mending. You'll learn basic techniques such as patching, but will have options to take it a step further with decorative sashiko stitching; you'll also learn how to darn socks and mend sweaters, as well as things like a tear in a bedsheet or down jacket. And along the way, the authors share heartfelt stories about the powerful act of mending, which strengthens not only the object we are repairing, but ourselves as well. Vibrant, full-color illustrations are woven throughout the handbook. Mending Life is a timeless, practical guide to cherishing and caring for our belongings.
