Any day is the perfect day to craft, and Craft-a-Day: 365 Simple Handmade Projects packs a year of creativity into one book. Set aside a few minutes each day to feed your passion with easy paper crafts, sewing patterns, home decor tutorials, wearables, and so much more. Craft-a-Day provides 365 opportunities for families to make memories together. 

It can be hard to find the time and the money for crafting. Author Sarah Goldschadt understands the importance of staying on budget, which is why the ideas in Craft-a-Day are affordable. A freelance graphic designer, Goldschadt's style is marked by bold color choices and basic composition. Projects are organized by week and theme, so feel free to skip ahead to topics that interest you most. Owl Week and Starburst Week are especially cute.

Though each week has a suggested date range, the illustrated index makes it easy to jump around. Seasons, holidays, animals, shapes, numbers–the list of themes goes on and on. There's even Mustache Week, a nod to a quirky trend that's still going strong. Plus, Craft-a-Day has bonus patterns and templates for those cases when one craft isn't enough. Learn to make decorations, gift tags, ornaments, plushes, cards, and more.

Craft-a-Day is your guide to a creatively fulfilling year. Follow the screen printing tutorials to make custom clothing and accessories. Master paper folding techniques, paint a piece of wall art, or make your own journal. By the time you've finished Craft-a-Day, you'll have the skills necessary to design enough projects of your own to last you the next year!

With straightforward directions and templates, the projects inside Craft-a-Day can be made by kids and adults. People of all skill levels can enjoy the wonderfully whimsical style of Sarah Goldschadt by replicating her crafts. Best of all, casual crafters probably have the materials necessary to get started on these projects right away. Keep it simple, keep it stylish, and most importantly of all, keep it fun.
