    For The Craftiness In All of Us

    I loved this book! Not only does the author give excellent informative and comprehensive information on what you need to begin a crafts business, but she expands on a number of resources that are pertinent to every crafter. After reading the book I checked out several of the websites and found incredible crafty ladies out there who are very professional. You can purchase any type of homemade craft there is available. The book was inspirational to say the least and I would recommend anyone who is interested in honing their craft to read it.

    Admittedly I have not finished this book, but what I have read I have enjoyed. The chapters are laid out well. Plus, it's written in a way that gives you ample information without boring you to tears. If you love to craft, and are thinking about taking the leap into the retail world, I would recommend this reading this book.

    Good Amount of Information!

    I think this book is just a year or so out of date, but it still holds up! The author presents the material in such a concise and breeezy manner, it was truly a pleasure to read. I have been selling my crafts online for a few years now and this still had plenty to teach me!

    Ripplestar's Revenge ~ Part 2 (Winterberry's Struggle Novella)

    The early traces of moonlight glowed with soft pale light upon the empty WaterClan camp. Not a soul stirred; every cat had retired to their dens after Flowerthorn's burial, anxiously awaiting the ceremony. The deputy ceremony. Ripplepool lay in his nest of moss and feather, eyes moist, brimming with tears. He stared blankly at the dirt walls, a fierce hatred for ScorchClan burning in his throat like acid. Never before had he felt so strongly about their enemy Clan. <br> He wanted them gone. <br> He wanted GrassClan and StoneClan to be restored. <br> He wanted peace amung the forest. <br> And Ripplepool knew that he had the potential to do so. <p> A choked yowl called for them to gather. Ripplepool's father had never sounded so crushed in his life. He imagined what it would be like for Crystalsky to die just for crossing off the border a few inches- he shivered and stopped the thought in its tracks. <br> *It must be so hard for him... So hard for me, too. She was my mother.* He quickly looked down to hide his watery eyes, and shuffled over to Crystalsky. Blinking away the tears, he glanced up, looked around. Jumpflare was peering out of the nursery, Dustkit and Hazelkit at her paws. The kits' mother had died just a few hours after their bi<_>rth from bloodloss, so Jumpflare volunteered to care for them, milk or not. Beside him and Crystalsky, Goldenpaw sat beside Jaysong, his mentor, and Oceanheart kept a close eye on the older apprentices, Fawnpaw, Owlpaw, and Lightpaw, making sure they didn't goof off in this seruous moment. In return, the medicine cat got stares from the 'Paws saying *We're old enough to take care!* The remaining cats of WaterClan were scattered around, sitting by themselves. <br> "The time has come." His hoarse voice didn't need to explain what time. "And I believe I have made the right decision. I don't want to drag this out, so I'll do it swiftly. I think this cat has the right heart and potential to take down the sinister ScorchClan, who will take my place when my final life goes to join StarClan. To keep our dynasty going, Ripplepool, I trust you to carry on your mother's role as deputy." Ripplepool glanced up at his father, suprisingly not shocked or suprised at all. Deep down, he had a sense Reedstar would chose him as deputy. The Clan cheered, but with enthusiasm, hope, and courage despite the one saddening event that happened earlier in the day. WaterClan had hope that with Ripplepool as Reedstar's successor, ScorchClan might be, at last, be beaten down. <p> -&#1071|Reflections&#9830

    As my boss says, I'm a creative type. I'm not into the intricaci

    As my boss says, I'm a creative type. I'm not into the intricacies of business and I'd make a horrible accountant. So when I thought about starting to sell my crafting hobby creations, I bought a few books. This was one of the three that I bought, and the one I read first. It's not quite as detailed as a &quot;Complete Idiot's Guide&quot; or &quot;Dummies&quot; BUT it's not boring as those guides have a tendency to be. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and learned quite a bit from it. The language was simple, almost conversational, and the layout/flow of the book was smooth and logical. A great choice for someone looking to make the jump from amateur/hobby-ist to professional.
