You really need to check out Mark Montano’s series of Big-Ass Craft Books as well as his others.
Check out his blog at http://markmontanoblogs.blogspot.com
This man has a great eye for other’s creative works which you can see at his blog. His work is also quite unique. Some of it is so easy you would wonder why no one else thought of it. Other craft ideas are more complicated. He has two BiG-Ass Craft books as well as “Pulp Fiction Perfect Paper Projects,” “The Big-Ass Book of Home Decor: More Than 100 Inventive Projects for Cool Homes Like Yours ,” “Dollar Store Decor: 100 Projects for Lush Living That Won’t Break the Bank ,” “Super Suite: The Ultimate Bedroom Makeover Guide for Girls,” “Pulp Fiction Perfect Paper Projects ,” “CosmoGIRL Cool Room: 35 Make-It-Yourself Projects ,” and “The Big-Ass Book of Bling .”
When you check out his blog make sure you sign up for his feed and his email.
I believe he has recently finished shooting pictures for his next book. Can’t wait.
Mark also has give-aways on Tuesday’s from Krylon and then there is Fiskar’s Fridays.
He has partnered with these companies who both have great products as well as great creative ideas on their Facebook pages and their websites so don’t forget to check them out also.
Enjoy the books and I hope they help you find your own inspiration for unique crafts.
