If you ever feel down and need an amazing book to cheer you up, read “Pocket Poems” by Laurie Haines. You can express your feelings through this book and marvel at the incredible artwork shown throughout the book.

She sells her book of poems, Pocket Poems – Unregretted Lessons from a Broken Heart in her shop, along with her artwork, like these adorable vintage car inspired coasters. Laurie is passionate about sharing her love of art and writing, as is evident by her shop page. You can see more on Etsy!
