Fantastic idea book! The colorful pictures are just so inspiring. The crafts are so easy to do and requires little time to accomplish. Too, the materials required are inexpensive. Even the inexperienced crafter can easily get away with the projects shown here. Featured projects range from glass decorating (etching, embellishing), clay pot decorating/painting, mosaic, dressed-up table centerpieces, etc. etc. The nice thing is each project comes with an extra idea/hint or two, plus beautiful pictures of the finished product. I'm sure this book will not just gather dust in your shelves; you'll actually craft something that's shown here! Worth it for the price!
I love this book! Each project has a color photo showing detail and all instructions take five or less steps. In addition to the instructions there are always at least two additional 'idea notes' for how you can further accentuate your project to make it more personalized. The book is broken out into Fall/ Winter/Spring/Summer chapters (although I think there are really more Winter/Christmas crafts than any other). Not only gift-giving ideas, but also just creative little things to place around your own home. Simplistic & affordable materials are used- probably many things you already have around the house. These projects are for the first timer as well as the experienced crafter. For those of us who love a lot of color & sparkle- buy this book!
Most of my craft books get looked at once or twice, then never see the light of day again. The projects are usually too time-consuming or require hard to find or costly supplies. This beautifully designed and photographed book will have a permanent place on my coffee table, as the projects are super-quick (most are 4 steps or less) and the supplies are readily available at craft and hardware stores. You might think that this would yield tacky-looking finished products, but these are tasteful and elegant -- think Martha Stewart on a time and monetary budget. A big plus is that many projects use the same supplies, so nothing purchased needs to be wasted. These items would be great for craft sales and church bazaars -- great results at low cost, with little time invested. This is a wonderful book!
