The Crafter’s Book of Clever Ideas Review and Giveaway!

The Crafter's Book of Clever Ideas by Andrea and Cliff CurrieAs we head into fall, back to school etc… I wanted to share with you a sweet book that I think is super great for tween crafters.  It’s called the Crafter’s Book of Clever Ideas by Andrea and Cliff Currie.  I know the Currie’s and they are genuinely fun folks!  Their personality and wit really comes through in their projects and book.
The Crafter's Book of Clever IdeasOne of my favorite things about this book is the layout and feel of the pages.  It’s trendy and colorful.  Look at the doodles around the project previews!
Bulletin Board Idea from The Crafter's Book of Clever IdeasProjects rotate between his and hers.  I really like this mini taxidermy project by Cliff Currie, especially for young guy makers.  I’m in Indiana and I know a lot of boys that would think it’s cool to make miniature taxidermy heads (including my husband, the hunter).
Mosaic Idea from The Crafter's Book of Clever IdeasThere are tried and true techniques with new and funky spins.  I appreciate this too for young crafters.   You’ll find some projects you want to make alongside your teen.  Make it together!  Hip hip hooray!

Two thumbs up for the Currie’s!  It’s a really fun book!!
