Recycled Crafts Contributor Anitra from the blog “Coffee Pot People”.
Every crafter knows October is not too early to start thinking that. Come to think of it, a lot of us know even January isn’t too early. It’s my favorite holiday, my favorite time of year, and puts me into a virtual crafting, cooking, wrapping frenzy, all of which I consider huge fun.
A SEASON OF JOY, a collection of heartfelt creations for the holidays, is my newest boatload of inspiration between book covers treasure. I knew it was going to be good the minute I saw the cover. I needed to make the things in it.
And the book is spiral bound! It lies flat, so you can manipulate materials with both hands, while checking what you’re supposed to do next. I’m not a huge fan of holding books open with whatever heavy object is handy, so that was a big plus for me.
Another Plus: It’s a very attractive book. Each project is beautifully photographed, the paper the publisher has chosen has a lovely texture, and leafing through, the pages make a rather lovely “scrrtching” noise against the wire spiral.
More To Love: Not only did I find myself wanting, planning, to make all kinds of things in this book, I soon realized that every single one of them was so simple it took only a few lines of text to explain.
The Book Sections: Ornaments, Wreaths & Garlands, Cards & Cardholders, Home Decor, Homemade Gifts, Tags & Wrapping, Children’s Projects, Activities & Parties, Scrapbook Pages.
