About the Author

The book offers plenty of full page photographs of each and every one of the completed projects. It also provides detailed step-by-step illustrations for the reader to follow for each project. The projects themselves are creative and inspiring. One of my favorites is the Stargazing Journal, which is made with a planetary cover you can shine a light through and see the constellations on a wall!
Each project is carefully and enthusiastically explained by the author, who provides an overall earthy tone to the book. The author presents herself in a manner that is friendly and entertaining, which is evident from the opening introduction. I encourage crafters and paper craft enthusiast to check this book out!
My only issue is that there are limited (one each) photos of the completed projects. Further more, none of the photos are of the inside workings of the books (the trickier parts) & most are artsy photos where only the center of the image is in focus.
I would've very much liked an inside view of the Things to Check Out Book (pgs 124-135). It's a frustrating oversight to only give a view of the simple outside, but not the direction-intensive inside. Just some feedback for Ms Zamrzla's next, surely wonderful, book!
