Books By Cari Buziak
Creating Celtic Animal Designs builds on author Cari Buziak's experience teaching and writing about Celtic patterns and their creation, meaning, and history. Her nine in-depth examples encompass both traditional and contemporary renderings of animals — hounds, lions, hares, birds, and other creatures. Cari demonstrates the freehand drawing of Celtic knots and moves beyond the basics to show how to manipulate and develop stand-alone patterns into panels and combinations. Artists, designers, art instructors, tattoo artists, and anyone who appreciates Celtic designs will find this book a treasury of both instruction and inspiration.
This newly revised edition of Creating Celtic Knotwork features a wealth of added material and revisions. Author Cari Buziak draws upon her extensive teaching experience to present easy-to-understand, well-illustrated instructions that explain all the basic techniques of Celtic patterns as well as the art's meaning and history. In addition to spirals, mazes, and step patterns, the designs include dragons, hounds, and other animals as well as human forms. Exercises and tips encourage experimentation that will allow you to develop your own variations on traditional forms. Information on drawing tools, painting materials, transferring patterns, and other practical aspects will help you get started right away.
Cross-stitch is a traditional hobby — but your designs don't have to be! These more than 130 patterns reflect a modern sensibility, with motifs ranging from trendy to vintage to kitschy, so there's something here for everyone. All are designed to fit into a 6-inch or smaller embroidery hoop, making them quick projects that can be finished in an evening or weekend. If you're feeling ambitious, the small designs can be assembled to form a larger piece.
Patterns are organized according to theme: animals; designs, including flowers and snowflakes; home and hearth, consisting of more than 40 patterns that range from a patchwork heart and an antique sewing machine to teapots, a watering can, and variations on "home sweet home"; nature; and charming patterns for special occasions. A brief introductory section offers advice on getting started, tools and supplies, and stitching.
When his target reveals their part in a global conspiracy involving AI sentience, Novak and his smartass AI sidekick must find a way to reveal the truth — even if it turns the world on its head.
Fans of science fiction classics like The Cat Who Walks Through Walls will enjoy this rollicking spy-fi adventure.
With a 30min read, it’s the perfect lunch time break!

Seventeen year old Mesilane — Lane — captured and deliberately infected with the Wasting virus. Surviving both the virus and the trial cure, she makes her escape into the barren Wasteland.
Running into the Chevies, a Gypsy-like trader clan, should have solved her problems. But Lane discovers that her abduction wasn't unique, but only the latest in a series of disappearances spanning decades. The Chevies have a plan, and only Lane holds the key to finding the organization behind it all.
To make matters worse, her unexpected reunion with Fallun, the tall and tanned spice-trader she knew from childhood, opens a door to complications she doesn't have time to face. The Wasting has struck again, and there's one chance for a cure — back at the lab she escaped from.
She might die getting the cure, but can she live with herself if she doesn't?
