Susan Beal brought us into the month of May with her book Modern Log Cabin Quilting it seemed only appropriate she bring us out with her book World of Geekcraft: Step-by-Step Instructions for 25 Super-Cool Craft Projects. If your feeling kinda geeky or kinda crafty your in luck because I am giving away a copy of the book.
I gotta say as someone who has never played a round of Dungeons and Dragons or seen an episode of Star Trek some of these projects were a little lost on me. I have however gone on a Lost bender so I found the Lost Tin-Can Telephones & Swan Station Logbook amusing. I love any plant under glass so the Star Wars Terrariums are a fave. The Planet Commerative Plates and Needle-Felted Solar System Mobile are going to strike a cord with most any crafter. All that being said even if you don’t think “geek crafts” apply to you, they do in one way or another.
Susan did not make all these fun projects herself, she has a slew of crafty supa stars helping her out. Look for names like Garth Johnson of Extreme Craft, Heather Mann of Dollar Store Crafts, A Trio of Tribbles by Linda Permann, Marvelous Machine Steam Punk Pendant by Diane Gilleland of Crafty Pod, Rachel Hobson of Craft Zine and many others.
With all these different crafters that means there are all kinds of different projects to make. Cross Stitch, mosaics, jewelry, quilting, cake baking, embroidery and wood working just to name a few are included in World of Geek Craft. As someone with crafty ADD I love craft books with a myriad of projects. There is something for everyone and even if you don’t like Buffy the Vampire Slayer you might enjoy learning how to make a portrait using Perler beads.
So this concludes our month of May give aways. Stop by next Monday, I still have a stack of books around here maybe I’ll keep things up Monday’s in June. Who wouldn’t want World of Geekcraft sitting on their bookshelf? Leave me a comment about geeks, crafts, you name it and you could win a copy.
