About the Author
Richela Fabian Morgan began her "duct tape odyssey" 8 years ago with a simple bi-fold wallet. Now, with the release of her newest book, she is continuing to take the crafting and fashion world by storm, turning the humble roll of duct tape into the trendiest craft item since glitter glue. In addition to being an author, she is an indie crafter;specializing in paper, adhesives, and found materials. She has taught craft projects at elementary schools, public libraries, and charitable organizations around the United States.
I am not so crafty, but I do love to try. I appreciated that there were level ratings on each of the projects, so that I can try a few "easy" ones before moving onto the "moderate" and maybe even the "challenging" ones. I am looking forward to working on a few of these with D (R is a little too young at the moment) and if they come out anything like they are supposed to, we might even make a bunch to include in our Operation Christmas Child gifts next year!
