You can! YES you CAN! Our book is about making things, making food, and making memories. Anyone can do it. If you are a beginning crafter, or if you have years of experience under your belt, you will find so many inspiring ideas, tutorials, and tips. My personal favorite is a chart of how to repaint anything… any. single. thing. A chart telling you how to prep the surface, how to paint it, how to finish it, and how to seal it, with recommended brands and products for every surface we could think of. You know you want this information all in one place! Also, lots of recipes.

DIY Easter Egg Wall Hanging

DIY Easter Egg Wall Hanging
Every Easter as a kid, my sisters and I would put together an Easter egg tree for the house. This consisted of us spending a whole afternoon blowing the yolks out of eggs, dyeing them, and then decorating a small tree (aka a branch) for the dining room table. This year I wanted to put a modern touch to the classic Easter egg tree, by turning it into a wall hanging. Whether you celebrate Easter or not, this is a fun way to welcome the coming of spring.
