As the second decade of the 21st century begins, we're more compelled than ever to find refuge in our homes and personalize our living spaces with DIY projects that celebrate who we are and where we've been. In Crafting a Meaningful Home , Meg Mateo Ilasco shares 27 projects that tell personal stories and celebrate heritage, all easily created on a budget. Learn how to decoupage a plate with photos of a best friend; silkscreen upholstery with folk motifs; artfully display love notes; sew a teepee from a vintage quilt top; or create family silhouettes for a festive banner. Contributed by a hip cast of well known designers from across the country, the projects are, at once, nostalgic, sentimental, and modern. Clear instruc­tions are easy to follow, even for beginning crafters.

Praise for Crafting a Meaningful Home:

"[Crafting a Meaningful Home] can serve two purposes on your gift giving list. If you have time, make one of the projects from the book. If not, give the book itself. It's beautifully photographed and written, and the projects are incredible."

Some of the crafts in this book caught my eye and I will likely try them out on my own one day, but others were just silly and I can picture the result being tacky or cheap looking.
