Summer Project: Seasonal Crafts, DIY, Simple & Speedy

For our last Summer Project post, we've got a hodge-podge of book suggestions for you, ranging from family crafts to a craft-a-day to projects for the casual, non-sewing crafter; how to make stylish items with Mod Podge, turn old things into special new objects, and bring joy and whimsy into your life! Throw a "handmade gathering" - where "[f]ood, decor, crafts, and more are part of each event, all collectively assembled and executed"*.  Learn about Street Craft - the "new generation of artists...creating uncommissioned, site-specific works employing a range of art and craft techniques, including weaving, crocheting, sculpting, painting, gardening, light installation, and more"*.  The world is your crafting oyster!

For more titles, try a search using the word "Handicraft".
