About the Author
Jennifer Traig has a Ph.D. in Literature, which is surprising, because in school she spent far more time crafting than studying. She lives, writes, and crafts in San Francisco.

This is an incredibly funny craft book. I think I have more fun perusing the captions at the top of the pages than making the crafts! The Crafty Girl Philosophy rings true in this edition. Long live the Crafty Girl.
