Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
11/18/2013
Heid and Nieradka, founders of the blog Everyday Is a Holiday, have presented a mixed bag, from mini faux doughnuts (which look delicious if one ignores the presence of clay, paint, and glaze) to a journal-making project in which a white cover of a notebook is painted black, then accented with embellishments and colors. Those who have dabbled in mixed-media projects may have more tools at hand than the average reader. Many projects require up to five colors of acrylic paint, plus upwards of a dozen smaller items, such as painter’s acrylic latex caulk, tracing paper, striped paper straws, stage-curtain collage sheets, distressed ink and applicators, and a rose cupcake pick (for the Fabulous Keepsake Cake). The projects are complex, but may provide just the spark of inspiration to those who already experiment with intricate necklaces made from wooden beads and paper ephemera (Sweet Spot Necklace), or heirloom bride-and-groom photo assemblages for unique family keepsakes using rickrack and rulers, sheet music slices, and a vintage photo of the newlyweds. (Dec.)
From the Publisher

They are ones to watch!" - Cathie Filian, Emmy-nominated host of Creative Juice on HGTV, producer of Craft Wars on TLC, and bestselling author

"Jenny and Aaron are two of the most talented folks we know. We are super proud to hang so many pieces of their artwork on our bakery walls because it always makes us smile - and our customers love it too!" -Cheryl and Griffith Day, authors of The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook

"Jenny and Aaron have stuck to their dreams and followed a sweet path they know is true to their hearts. [They] take (and make) the cake…always have, always will." -Jane Dagmi, HGTV Remodels, Designing Spaces

★ 11/15/2013
Heid and Nieradka's crafty partnership started almost 20 years ago, and their designs have been sold at major craft stores as well as at their own retail shop. Here, in their debut, a companion to their blog Everyday Is a Holiday, they focus on paper and mixed-media art. There's a very particular aesthetic to these projects: think bright pastel colors, vintage photos, cheery kitsch, and a tasteful (but not insubstantial) amount of glitter. However, the ideas can be adapted to suit a variety of tastes. The directions are lavishly illustrated with step-by-step, full-color photographs, so even crafters who don't know what a spouncer is or who have never frosted a Styrofoam cake with paint-tinted caulk can follow along. The best thing about this volume? The authors are obviously having fun with their art; this title is infused with a sense of joy. VERDICT Ideas and inspiration abound in this clever collection aimed at scrapbookers, jewelry makers, and mixed-media crafters.

    This book is amazing. Jenny and Aaron make it so easy to make beautiful mixed media art projects. Every page is filled with colorful fun!

    My very favorite is Art Journaling; you can make every page personally your own and they have so many awesome techniques that are so different from any others I have ever tried. And all the yummy colors will just take your breath away. We all have a story to tell and every story is special. To me, my journal will be like a heirloom I will pass down to my children and grandchildren (along with this book!!). And a bonus is reading their blog, Everyday Is A Holiday. These two truly live this way and they have helped me to do the same thing! Love from the Alabama Princess!
