I found this book to be rather disappointing from a crafting perspective. While the narration makes for enjoyable reading, the few projects themselves are kind of, well, blah, and not quite as out there as the cover art and back cover synopsis would make them seem. There's nothing in here that even a beginner crafter couldn't think of on their own or find online instructions for.

Most of the new, "hip" crafting books are like this; lots of 'I'm so cool. blah, blah, blah' but light on the actualy creativeness. I'd suggest to bypass them all and find a good vintage crafting book and use those ideas and adapt them to your own cool lifestyle.

Kind of disappointing. I was expecting more ideas, less yapping. Not my favorite book on original crafting.

Not what I expected, few crafts that are easy to make with out a book. Cute Idea just not enough substance
