CRAFT MAGIC Here’s the thing. I’m not much of a crafter. I can barely fold paper in half without the whole endeavor going crooked. So this book doesn’t seem like a natural fit for me. And yet. It is! I love explorations of creativity, I love paper and I love anything that makes me feel like I can try to make something beautiful and maybe even succeed. The projects in this book vary in difficulty and application. They are different and delightful. Bonus? The book is as beautiful as the creations it…

Gorgeous colors – an art book of paper craft I bought this book mainly because I love color and pretty pictures. I was thrilled to find the book super full of content and pictures on every page. And the quality of the book is phenomenal. You know how some art books don’t reproduce the colors well or everything looks kind of dull and flat? Not this book. So gorgeous! I am not even really a crafty person, I just thought it looks beautiful and happy. It’s just a bounty of stories and ideas and brilliant color. So inspiring.
