Book Review: Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts


If you haven't heard, the "Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts" is out. I just received my copy of the book last week and I can't sing its praises enough. Just paging through the book has my mind spinning with ideas. It's filled with just about every craft technique imaginable (beading, scrap booking, gilding, marbleizing, etc.). Along with the craft techniques you'll find craft projects with step by step directions, pictures, and patterns. There's even a tools, materials, and sources directory. This craft book truly has it all, great projects, beautiful photos, and 400 pages of inspiration.

This might be the year I actually make these for Easter.

I got my copy last week too and I love it! Nobody does crafting like Martha!

I feel like the crafting world is so big it could never fit in 400 pages! But it sounds like Martha did it.

Thank you for the review!!! They have it at Costco and I almost bought it but wasn't sure. I love having a "good reason" to go back to Costco!
