This was such an enjoyable read -- laugh out loud funny with lots of useful tips. I refer back to it often.
Besides being hilarious, this book has sooooooo many great ideas! I'm reading the book for enjoyment but have flagged a dozen pages for future use of her clever, cost-saving and potentially beautiful projects. I can't wait to jump in!
