So Many Crafts, Not Enough Time

There are 300 crafts in this book that I want to make. Many times you get a craft book and can use about half of it. This one has great ideas and the instructions are easy to understand, even when listening to it. The craft supplies aren't extraordinarily expensive either. It was like the author tried to keep it inexpensive, but you still can create beautiful crafts. The book starts out with how to organize a craft area and gives great ideas on setting up large or small spaces. There is something for everyone in this book. There are fabric crafts, ideas on scrapbooking, how to paint just about anything, how to make fragrant crafts like potpourri and candles, wood crafts, how to sculpt or model with clay, resin and more, making crafts with washi, masking and other tapes, how to make things with buttons, jewelry making, using yarn including knitting and crocheting, crafts for kids and things to make for any holiday you might celebrate. The author did a great job in making instructions easy and the reader makes sure you understand everything. All in all, a great book for crafters of all ages.

Hours of Endless Crafts!

With over 300 ideas, Susan Hollister gives you a different craft for almost every occasion. Each craft is explain in great detail and the instructions are easy to follow. There’s nothing worse than finding something you would like to make, but the instructions are hard to follow and seem to leave out steps. That’s not the case for this book. Anyone can find something to do in this book. I took away the idea of making the most out of everyday materials. It’s also a great resource for anyone who has kids or babysits since there are hours of fun filled activities. I defiantly recommend this book if you’re looking for something to do, or are a long time craft maker!

Crafting by Ear

I like that this book has tons of all sorts of crafts to try out. Plus, I could listen to the instructions as I worked, pausing the audio as necessary and then picking it up again when I was ready for the next step.

Lots of creative crafting ideas

If you like doing crafts, this is the audio book for you! It is full of really clever and creative ideas that I have never heard of before, using materials that I never would have thought of using. It has a range of different types of crafts so there is something for everybody and also allows for people's different levels of ability which I like because although I enjoy doing crafting projects I am by no means very good at it. I'm looking forward to trying some of these ideas.

Crafting - get an inspiration and have fun!

‘Crafting’ by Susan Hollister is a creative audio book full of many ideas. I love variety of crafting style and pattern. Good and enthusiastic narrator helps you to focus on old and modern ways of crafting with variety of materials. You can make your picture frame that can be hanging, so it is nice to decorate them as you wish using ribbons, fabrics, buttons or crochet. Also memory book is fantastic ideas.
I love homemade jewellery like seashell pendant or painted stones that you can wear or just hanging on the wall. Susan reminds me about my favourite activities when I was a child like preparing scrapbooks with my secrets and pictures. I enjoy ‘Crafting’ and can recommend it to everyone who is looking for new hobby.
