When the package arrived with our copy of Craft Fail for review, my pre-teenage daughter took off with the book to read it. I finally got my hands on the book for review, sitting down with it, I went through it cover to cover chuckling along the way with a few giggles that escaped out loud. I don't know what it is about seeing craft failures, maybe it is the fact that we can all relate. You know, when the creative process goes terribly wrong. You have a vision in your mind, plan out the steps, take the plunge into creating and the result; well, not so fabulous. Lets face it, we aren’t Martha.
Craft Fail is a great coffee table book. A fantastic present for your crafty friend. A go to book when you need to add a little humor to your life. In other words, it is a very enjoyable book that everyone can relate too.
