Editorial Reviews

"Who doesn''t love finding awesome and easy ideas on Pinterest. I am no where near creative when it comes to crafting but I often find myself on there looking for homeschool ideas, workout ideas and even healthy recipes. There are times I can get totally sucked into it because there is just an endless supply of information. With that being said, I recently had the opportunity to check out a new book called, Pinterest Perfect! This stunning new book features the artwork, projects, and inspirational designs of talented artists and crafters, each of whom enjoys a sizeable fan base in the digital space and elsewhere. Thoughtfully divided into easy-to-digest sections, this captivating guidebook inspires readers to learn various techniques in an interactive and engaging format..." - AsTheyGrowUp.com
