Yellow Owl's Make It Yours is loaded with ideas for ways to use the book's cool, modern motif collections (geometries, florals, animals, travel, and seasonal) even beyond the nearly 40 step-by-step projects it shares.

-Christine Schmidt is my crafting idol. She makes me want to stop what I'm doing, pick up a set of tools and make something creative. Make It Yours is a gateway to a world of fun and easy-to-follow projects that let you create (and decorate) the home of your dreams.- -Grace Bonney, Design*Sponge Here is Deborah Needleman quote: While I love great design, I am devoted to the school of D-I-Somebody Else. But the projects in this book are so wildly inspiring, look so easy and so, dare I say, fun that I want to cover the table, roll up my sleeves and D-I-Myself. -Deborah Needleman -Make It Yours is a book that will get your creative juices flowing. Just by flipping through the first ten pages I was ready to go out and get fabric paint and dyes. What I love the most about this book is how diverse it is. So many fun techniques. Just buy it!- -Paul Lowe, Sweet Paul Magazine -I am a fan of Christine Schmidt's elegant and fun aesthetics. From her great designs at Yellow Owl Workshop to the clever easy to follow projects in her new crafting treasure chest Make It Yours, Christine's modern voice helps inspire the maker in all of us. Her unique point of view demystifies basic art and craft techniques like stamping and dyeing to new and dizzying results that are anything but basic. Make It Yours will resonate with makers of a wide range and styles.- -Todd Oldham, designer
