Guess what?  Art, Like Bread readers can look forward to more reviews here on the blog!  Somehow, someone has identified my blog as a good place to promote new books and products.


As you know, I do this simply for the love of craft, but I've always dreamed of being one of those bloggers who "has been sent a sample copy" of a book, or "requested a sample" of a product.  I'll review products & books I like anyway, but being asked to review is flattering and fun!

Stay tuned in the next few days for a BIG DEAL book review and giveaway!!  Until then, I've drafted this blog post to let the world know that I am open.  I welcome the prosperity and I want to pass it on to you, too.

Let me know what you think, readers!  It's all for you, after all.

My first responsibility is to my readers.

I started this blog in 2007 simply as a way to share my craft projects, ideas, and inspiration.  Over the years, the blog has grown into something more:  a space for community-building and conversation.  Through my participation in online and real-life crafting communities, and also through my extensive personal and work-related networks, I have grown a loyal, specialized cohort people who admire a handmade or artistic aesthetic, and of course, hardcore & casual crafters.

I am happy to provide honest, reliable book and product reviews for them.  Get me excited about a product and I won't shut up about it!  If I don't like it, I simply won't review it.  It is important to me that my blog is a place where I can be positive and send positivity into the world. 

- Art, Like Bread will be featured in two prominent, upcoming crochet books.  As of October, 2011, I have received confirmation of the inclusion of my patterns in these books.  
- The Art, Like Bread Podcast has launched and will increase the readership and reach of Art, Like Bread.
- I have a team of trusted and knowledgeable reviewers who can cover products as well.

Crochet, collage, crafts, yarn, coffee, tea, scrapbooking, paper, stationery, rubber stamping, fabric, sewing, tools, food, cooking, fashion, accessories, gifts, children, and anything fun/useful for my readers!  (Check out my labels at the bottom of the blog for very specific information on what I've written.)

If you have a product to share, please contact Cami at artlikebread(at)  I excitedly check this account to see what's out there!  My readers love giveaways, and I love to provide them, so if you have a new product to share, I'm ready to pass that on to my amazing network of wonderful readers!
