You Are Awesome

21 Crafts to Make You Happy

Published by Cicada Books
Edited by Abbey Hendrickson.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>You Are Awesome</I>.Abbey Hendrickson writes the highly trafficked blog Aesthetic Outburst, which documents her life in an old farmhouse in rural New York. In between DIY disasters, childcare catastrophes, book obsessions and cultural consumption, Abbey makes some fantastic and funky craft projects, which she sells through her online Etsy shop. You Are Awesome collects together 21 of her craft ideas from her blog and her “20 in 20” challenge (for which she made 20 crafts in 20 days), each one presented in color and clearly explained step by step. They range from an embroidery sampler to a bookshelf to a laptop toy made from a cardboard box. The projects are fairly simple, but all distinctive and quirky, and will appeal to novices and crafting professionals alike. Each one captures the warmth and humor that Abbey herself radiates and which has made her and her blog so popular. You Are Awesome follows Cicada Books’ recent publication, State of Craft, and will appeal to a new generation of young crafters seeking fresh inspiration for cultivating their own individual aesthetic. Small and chunky, with a hard-cut gray board cover and overflowing with illustrations and photography, it is itself a crafty object you will want to have and to hold, and makes a perfect feel-good gift for the holiday season.

STAFF REVIEW

Who doesn't love a little heartfelt handmade goodness?! You Are Awesome is a craft-tastic compendium based on the insanely popular design blog Aesthetic Outburst (http://aestheticoutburst.blogspot.com/). Updated daily by freelance artist and craft superstar Abbey Hendrickson, the blog traces the life and times of an art-obsessed family living in rural upstate New York.
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a tiny skier out of a clothespin or a faux-laptop out of a cardboard box? Well now you can!!! Each quirky craft is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions, illustrations and gorgeous color photography. This nifty-gifty book is only $15.95 and features 21 of Abbey's most popular projects from the site. You can think of this as an enthusiastic follow-up to Fall 2011's incredibly successful how-to-guide State of Craft.
Major internet promotion can be expected for this charming publication. Not only does Aesthetic Outburst get over 20,000 visitors a month but Abbey also runs a much adored Etsy store and is a frequent guest on many highly trafficked design blogs such as www.apartmenttherapy.com and www.stylist.com. You Are Awesome will be especially popular with families looking for fun projects to bring the whole brood together. -- Erin Dunigan
