Judging by the number of DIY books and websites that have emerged recently, DIY is making a huge comeback. Speaking of books, here’s one that will inspire you to take the leap into do-it-yourself projects. It’s written by Sarah Goldschadt and it is aptly called ‘Craft-a-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects’. The book will give you very straightforward yet creative ideas about making something new every day of the year.
These are not elaborate or complicated projects but little kickstarters for your creativity. By following simple instructions from the book you can make magnets, cards, lovely wall art, finger puppets, cupcake toppers and many, many other things that don’t require a lot of time, energy, money or special skills and tools. Craft-a-Day also brings you 52 different themes, from rainbows to groundhogs. All of the DIY projects from the book are fun to do and very visually appealing.
The book’s 432 pages also contain patterns and detailed how-to-photographs. Its author Sarah Goldschadt is a Danish-American graphic designer, blogger and arts & craft aficionado who has appeared on TV shows and in magazines like Oprah, Martha Stewart Living, Food Network Magazine and Better Homes & Gardens. Even one of the most popular American lifestyle gurus and cooks, Rachael Ray, has admitted that she is crazy about the book.
