Our Library : Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts

Posted by

More from our library...alright, I know, it seems a little contrived to slip our new Crafts Encyclopedia into our Library Posts, but I just had to, because, the truth is, it's one of our favorites. I only joined the department at the tail end of the book's development, so I'm definitely not tooting my own horn when I say its beautiful photographs, lovely projects, and broad range of techniques is pretty amazing. Here are a few of my favorites.

    Just found your blog through I've visited the MS website before, but really enjoy this blog format for inspiration. Thanks!

  • I was looking through the Easter crafts. I'm really disappointed that I was unable to find any Christian Easter Projects. Easter is one of the most holy Christain holidays, I would think there would be at least a couple of ideas. Bunnies and eggs are cute, but not what Easter is all about. Thanks

  • Looking forward to the book!
    Another great success for Martha Stewart with the help of her team of craft experts.
