I admit, I clicked on this book because of the title, "The Big-Ass Book of Crafts 2." It made me wonder, what exactly would they be discussing in a book with a name like that? Turns out, a LOT. "The anti-Martha Stewart, Mark's projects are fun, zany, bright, and colorful - but most importantly, they're made for real people with normal budgets. A master of turning easy-to-find, inexpensive objects into incredibly glamorous crafts, like dollar-store woven mats transformed into elegant coffee table covers, bracelets made of thimbles and much more, Mark plays with ideas for home, clothing, yard, and kitchen, with projects for all skill levels." This one is a keeper in my cart, for sure. It's on sale for $5.84 CAD, with a regular retail value of $19.95 USD.
Next up, another unique and er, interesting name for a book: Junk Beautiful (Outdoor Edition). Anyway, the contents of the book have to do with 'junk' from salvage yards,and even dumpsters. This book proves that the old adage is true - another person's trash really is another person's treasure. This book will prove to be addicting as you view seemingly worthless items transform into items of beauty. This book is on sale for $5.19 CAD, and has a retail value of $21.95 USD.
This is one sale you won't be able to look through without seeing books for people you know would love them!
My sister-in-law would enjoy looking through this book Pop-Up Cards: Over 50 Designs for Cards That Fold, Flap, Spin, and Slide.

Here is a book, Made by Dad: 67 Blueprints for Making Cool Stuff, with a description that got me so interested in buying it, that it is also in my cart right now! "He knows that kids like contraptions and gadgets, things that are surprising—a chair that appears to be balanced on eggshells. Things that are complex—a multilevel city, with buildings, tunnels, and roads, built from old boxes around the legs of a table." This book would be a great book for a special dad or father figure on Father's Day! The book is $4.54 CAD, and it has a regular retail value of $19.95 USD.
Raise your hand if you think you could colour one of these! Color Me Crazy: Insanely Detailed Creations to Challenge Your Skills and Blow Your Mind.

There are 44 hand drawn creations in the book, for your enjoyment, and it is only $4.89 CAD, with a regular retail value of $15 USD.
