I have a confession. I don't buy craft books. Like almost never. ever. ever. ever. ever. But CraftFail is more than a craft book…

I was really honored to receive a copy of CraftFail to review. I've been following Heather Mann of CraftFail.com, DollarStoreCrafts.com, and TheBlueprintSocial.com for a few years and love her ideas and fun approach to crafting. CraftFail is for anyone who has ever been on the internet, especially on Pinterest, and failed at making something they were inspired by. I could buy this book for my non-crafty sister, for my friends who always put on the perfect birthday party (Heather talks about you in the book!), and for my nephews who don't craft but would get a kick out of it. Even my husband died laughing at some of the projects in the book! It's like Heather took all the meme worthy Craft Fails of the world and put them into a book. Katie can just read this book and get a laugh instead of reading tumblr all day…

Why? Because we've all been there. We all can relate to the experiences in the book, can laugh at other people while at the same time laughing at ourselves.  The book is a great size too – about half the size of a sheet of paper. I see this gracing a lot of toilets, I mean, “water closets”. You know you read in the bathroom … come on now. And that's the best part of this book. I was shocked and then saying, “hell yeah!” at half the commentary in the book. There were definitely a few phallic references, lots of poop, and lots more poop. But that's keeping it real and that's the icing on the CraftFail cake. Add to that the commentary from actual CraftFail.com readers and well, this one is a winner. Seriously. Just buy it for everyone on your friends list. You can even get CraftFail on Amazon!

 So who on your list are buying this bad boy for?
