My friend Calista Taylor created this book and I was lucky enough to see the sneak peek on some of her creations. So much talent! I can't wait to see the book and try some of my own alterations.

I borrowed this book from the library and went through it right away hoping to find something fun to make. Then I looked at the back of the book and saw that the retail price of the book is $19.99.

A basic diy book with a range of project ideas that could be expanded upon to make customized accessories. The projects aren't super complex and a lot of the photos are poor quality. ...more
