About the Author

STEPHANIE ROSE is the creator of the popular blog Garden Therapy, where you will find hundreds of DIY garden-related projects you can really dig into. Stephanie's creative take on garden making has been featured in Women's Day, Country Woman Magazine, Romantic Homes, the Huffington Post, and Apartment Therapy, among many more print and online publications. Stephanie spends her time as a gardener, writer, and artist in Vancouver, where she has turned her small urban yard into a Garden Made heaven, proving that size truly does not matter. She is passionate about organic gardening, natural healing, and art as part of life. Her mission is to bring the joys of garden therapy to everyone she meets, which serves her well in her volunteer work as a Master Gardener. Stephanie lives with her husband, son, and tiny dog who provide her with inspiration and delight both in and out of the garden.


If your crafty needs run along the garden path, this resource offers an assortment of projects. First-time author Rose has an easy confidence with her topic. The designs are inspired by nature and gardening, and arranged by season. Many of these crafts are quite familiar-planting containers, markers, outside lighting, etc. Each of the 40 offerings is well organized, and beautiful illustrations add to the tome's attraction. Standout projects include a mason jar solar lantern from a cannibalized stake solar light, a bug hotel for beneficial garden insects, and an autumn harvest wreath incorporating sage and garlic. -VERDICT For DIYers seeking simple but creative projects, this book will appeal. While inspirational photos are abundant, some of the instructional images are a bit small. However, the instructions are sufficient, and Rose's Master Gardner status gives her writing authority. Recommended for those looking for a breadth of projects." --Library Journal
