Make and Takes for Kids Giveaway

I’m all for easy. Or should I say I’m always for easy (and easily overwhelmed by complex projects).

Our friend Marie over at has released her first book: Make and Takes for Kids and she’s got easy on speed dial. I’m in love with her book – it’s beautifully done and the projects are things that I would actually do with my kids (and I’m a craft slacker).

    I most certainly need projects like this. Unfortuntately, I’m not particularly crafty or creative, so hopefully I could tackle these projects with my daughter, successfully.
