    I looked at the leisure arts website and the first book that stuck out for me was “Have a Heart.” I am newly pregnant and already imagining all of the baby photo/craft opportunities I will have and this book looks like it is full of useful suggestions!

    I’m not sure I completely follow, but this looks like a really fun craftbook. I have a teen-age daughter and we love, love, love recycled crafting. This would be great for the festivals we will be attending this summer.

    Oh my – so many to choose from. I liked the look of ‘Born to Bead’ because I’d love to try beading – like I really need another craft to aspire to. ;o)

    Donna Kooler’s Encyclopedia of Sewing
    This would be so interesting and would be used time and time again for years into the future, and by my daughters too, as they both love sewing. I can see it being referred to often, think I shall have to have it!

    Well, there are so many books! But I’ll pick The Big Green Book of Recycled Crafts, because that’s the sort of crafts I love to practice

    ‘fast and fabulous fashion jewlery’. i love all the big beautiful necklaces that are so popular and have wanted to learn how to make jewelry.
    would love to see a tutorial on the recycled bottle jewelry. it looks so pretty. what a hoot to tell everyone what they are made of. i’m going to try the candy wrapper zippered pouch. my son’s gielfriend loves ‘swedish fish’? i dont really know what they are but think it would be funny to give to her….im an emal subscriber and love the insipration. thanks

    This looks like a really fun book. No matter how hard I try, I can’t figure out how you would make such cool jewelry from plastic bottles.
    I have tons of Leisure Arts books in my collection, but the one I really want is Slash Your Stash. I think everyone’s stash could use a little slashing!
