A lovely full-color book with nicely layed out projects. The variety of projects was pleasing, offering everything from ideas and instructions for a garden apron, several options for plant pots and vases, as well as tiles and garden signs. I appreciated the range of methods and mediums used - "sandpainting", mosaic, claywork, decoupage, metalwork, painting, and more. I've tried a couple of the projects and really enjoyed the whole process from start to finish. It's nice to work on something with clear directions that you can get a truly attractive finished project in a reasonable amount of time. I didn't find that any of the materials for the projects were or would be difficult or expensive to obtain. This book is a nice source for gift ideas.

Excellent book for ideas and craft projects. Easy to do crafts that won't take lots of money to create beautiful items. Each page gives inspiration. Beautiful color photos. Highly recommended.
