I read through most of the books included in this collection, found them simple and straightforward, easy to read, not confusing, and encouraging to try new skills. Due to various issues in our household I did not have a chance to complete many of the projects...but I did get to some of them.
Here's comes the cruncher.
Is this something I would recommend you buy?
I don't know, I honestly don't know. Here's why.
When I looked through the collection I was sad that many of the categories only had one file it. Some of which I have gotten free through a freebie site. Many of them have a vintage look (deliberately so I think)..... And so I thought hmm.. with a little legwork I could have gotten these myself. And would I want to pay someone for something I can do myself? Aaah...not really. But in truth I need to say that only 11 of these books are available in the public domain, one is completely new and the rest were in from a private site that has now released them for public sale. There is lots of good stuff in this collection. It's just my frugality stating... would I want to buy something that with some diligence and effort on my part I could find on my own? (make sense?)
YET.... On the other hand... I never would have thought about making my own shower curtain if it hadn't been for this collection. I never would have learned how EASY it is to make bath salts and granola. This collection encouraged me to do so... if only to say I've worked on doing a good review for you all. .. but it is SO much fun to learn new things! I am so happy that I took the risk on learning something new. Now I can easily make hubby and son happy making my OWN granola. Pretty neat huh? Also someone had to do the work to put the collection together, and that is worth something yes? Indeed.
So if you want to be inspired, and you are willing to pay someone to put it all together for you, get this collection WHILE it is still on sale. It's on sale until the 18th of October so strike while the iron is hot. :) Go ahead.. be inspired to try something new. You'll be glad you did. :)
Here's another inspiration. it was SUCH a hit. :) Pumpkin Bars.
