    Recrafting is Fun and Easy

    This book has something for everyone from kids to adults and from the novice crafter to the experienced crafter. I found so many projects to share with my friends and my grandchildren. Crafting is big now and Cathie and Steve are the real pros when it comes to making things.

    Hip and Fun Book

    I watch Creative Juice everyday and I am thrilled to have their book! A treasure of craft projects - I love it! Cathie and Steve do tons of recycled projects on the show and now I have a book full of their ideas. This book has everything from candle making and jewelery to kids projects and some great projects for recycling cards. I love the ice sculpture.
