You don't have to be an artist or crafter to get something out of this book. Art Saves delivers bit-sized inspiration from 20 artists, including author Jenny Doh.

I looked through this book several times for the projects and then one day I actually READ it!
It is so inspiring! These artists have such a wonderful attitude about sharing art and helping people enjoy creating their own art.
