"Why not pick up this book and sit down and quietly work on a project or perhaps grab a few friends, a bottle of wine, and put on some inspiring music and create something together? Experimenting with arts and crafts projects at home can be great soul food and help break boring routines and even lift one from a rut. That is why I craft at home -- not because I'm an expert at it (some I dare not show anyone because frankly, they look like the work of a toddler!) but because I have fun doing it. This beautiful title is now available at bookstores nationwide or on Congratulations to Jason and to his team who made this book a reality. Lovely" -Book Review by Holly Beckerhttp: //

"I daresay that once you see the wonderful ideas in this book, you'll be itching to get your hands upon old and discarded books to create your own one of a kind art. Go is o.k. to "Play with Books" - Tina Wilson, http: //, April 28, 2010
