This book has been out for a few weeks now, but I only just found out about it. It's called Candy Aisle Crafts and was created by Jodi Levine, who has been a longtime crafts editor at Martha Stewart Living. Jodi was actually the former editor-in-chief of Martha Stewart Kids magazine but has worked in various departments at the company for well over a decade. (Martha Stewart writes the foreword to the book.) I've always loved Jodi's imaginative approach to crafting. She sees potential and artistic possibility in the most unusual and unexpected things. In this book, Jodi re-imagines all kinds of colourful confections and uses them in creative crafts. Be sure to visit Jodi's blog, Super Make It, to learn more about the book. You can order it here.FROM THE PUBLISHER:
