It is like reading about one version of myself after another - and while the projects are more like sugestions, and there is just one from each crafter, these aren't the point of the book, it is so much more than a project book, and has really inspired me to take more seriously the things that make me truely happy. brilliant! (I may even venture online to the bloggs...)
I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised.
I was looking for a bit of inspiration but didn't want a standard project book. Each craftsperson describes their inspiration, creative processes and workspaces. It is beautifully photographed and I have saved all the featured blogs and browse them frequently.
You will visit this book again and again.
