I’m a lucky gal that so many people have said nice things about Weekend Handmade. Here are some of them.

“All these crafts have a quirky feel—think hipster Martha Stewart—and they’re pretty simple, too.” – NPR Weekend Edition

“Weekend Handmade not only takes aim at people like me who start to sweat when they see a glue gun, but also provides fresh ideas for those who carry one around their waist in a holster. “ – Dooce

“I’m a huge fan of Kelly Wilkinson’s blog, Make, Grow, Gather, and her first book is filled with the same inspired, pretty and modern projects.” – Design Sponge

“The projects are so easy and doable—the look is very down-to-earth, perfect for people that have a creative, natural style, but are short on time and just want to have fun.” – Angry Chicken

“The finished products, if completed carefully, look pretty enough to happen upon in the shelves of Anthropologie.” – SF Chronicle

“The simple botanical luminarias in Kelly Wilkinson’s new book, “Weekend Handmade,” disprove the notion that do-it-yourself projects don’t turn out as they appear in books.” – LA Times
