Crafty Pod, I love you!

I recently won this amazing book from http://craftypod.com. Diane Gilliand (aka Sister Diane) generously hosted a give away of this mixed-media, fairytale picture book that is truly magical. I'm not sure I have the skills to make many of the projects featured, but it's very inspirational and challenging. Diane has also been featured in a book I recently checked out from the library called "1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse" by Garth Johnson. I only wish there were instructions for some of the projects. Most are really works of art, but some are definitely do-able.

Crafty Pod features lots of podcasts, tutorials and great blog advice. Check it out!

Yaaaaay! I'm glad the book made it to you safely, and that you're enjoying it.

Actually, some of the projects I submitted to Garth's book have how-to's online. You can find most of them linked from this page: http://www.craftstylish.com/profile/Sister_Diane

Happy crafting!
