The V Spot

Rants, observations and home decorating from a woman with no time for a blog.

The Mod Podge Rocks book is awesome! (I can’t wait for the movie!)

I love working with Mod Podge.  In my opinion, it’s one of the best crafting “tools” out there.  If you’ve never worked with it you’re totally missing out (and, possibly, have been living in a cave).

Chances are you’re familiar with the fabulous blog Mod Podge Rocks, and now the author of that blog, Amy Anderson, has written a book!

I have had the pleasure of meeting Amy and have to say that her book conveys every bit of the warmth, energy and creativity that she exudes in person. She reminds us that practically anything and everything can be transformed with a little bit of creativity…. and there is plenty in this book to get your creative juices flowing.

Check out these boots that she transformed into something fabulous with cute fabric and a little Mod Podge!

And how cute is this idea…?  Every day Grant gives me at least 10 art projects.  (All of them masterpieces, of course).  There is only so much room on my refrigerator.  How about reducing the images and turning them into an adorable bracelet?!

There are more than 40 projects with step-by-step, easy to follow instructions… guaranteed to help you channel your inner crafter.

You’ll also see a gallery of other great projects from crafters and bloggers you might recognize…

Mod Podge Rocks!: Decoupage Your World can be purchased at and Barnes & Noble but if you would rather try to win a copy of the book and a Mod Podge prize pack full of goodies you can enter here!

In addition to Amy’s fab book, the winner will receive a full size jar of Mod Podge, and a full size bottle of Dimensional Magic, plus a Mod Podge starter pack, 3 Mod Podge Podgeable Paper Books, Mod Podge Podgeable Shapes, a Mod Podge Brayer, a T-shirt and an adorable little bag to carry your supplies.  (Because who goes anywhere without their Mod Podge?!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck!  Thanks so much to Amy at Mod Podge Rocks and to Plaid Crafts for donating these items for this fabulous giveaway!

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for the purposes of review but have not been compensated in any other way.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I rediscovered Mod Podge through Amy's blog and have been hooked ever since. My next Mod Podge project will be some trinket boxes that need spruced up.

I absolutely LOVE Mod Podge. I am a mod podge-aholic! Right now, I'm getting ready to make a picture frame where I Mod Podge all kinds of squares of paper on a picture frame and then junk it up with more scrapbooking supplies. I am making one for a wedding gift.

I can so clearly remember the first time I ever used Mod Podge. It was in 1973. Seriously. I was 9 years old, and I discovered Mod Podge in the craft room at camp. I've been a fan ever since. (By the way, we didn't have trouble with the name back then; it was very hip to be "mod," so the name was one of the coolest things about the product! :)
