This colorful book of crafts is loosely organized around a seasonal theme, and consists mostly of instructions for making the items that go inside: sachets, cornstalk dolls, herb oil, dried flowers, Eastern European-inspired Easter eggs, and numerous other folk-art items. The Noah's Ark dough basket with its tiny dough menagerie is tremendously appealing--there's a real sense of fun here.
Lloyd has put together 75 projects that will brighten your home or delight a friend. . . . You'll be inspired to try your hand at creating your own gift basket. -- Asbury Park Press, 6/12/97
