Can I just tell you how wonderful this book is? I've loved Martha Stewart since she first came on the scene way back when. I've been a subscriber to Martha Stewart Living magazine forever, have read books about her, watched her cooking shows, bought her cookbooks and her DVD's. Although, I must admit to liking the vintage Martha Stewart offerings better compared to today's. That being said, all of her projects are always well done with great instructions and attention to detail. Now I know that she doesn't actually come up with all of the ideas or do everything herself, but I love what's at the core of her marketing message. It's similar to what I've written at the top of my blog.
I've recently read and created a few of the projects (I'll share some of the fun things later) in the book, and was again thrilled with all the detailed instructions.
The book includes so many crafts that are popular today - scrapbooking, rubber stamping, jewelry making, calligraphy, candlemaking, mosaics, wreath making, quilling, rope crafts, you name it and it's probably in here!
There are templates, and a tools and materials guide that will help you to create all of the wonderful projects, plus spark your creativity for projects of your own.The photography alone is enough to make you want to buy the book. But one of you my sweet friends won't have to buy the book in order to enjoy it. Thanks to Crown Publishing, I'm giving away (1) copy of "Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts" to one lucky friend of The Old Parsonage.
