TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As summer break approaches, parents everywhere begin questioning: what am I going to do with the kids all summer?! Author and artist Eli Maor knows the best way to keep kids and parents happy is crafting – and it doesn't have to get too fancy to be fun! Maor, a "crafting minimalist," specializes in using what is all around us to create beautiful, fun crafts and DIY projects. With a passion for recycling, upcycling, and just using what you have on hand, Maor creates gorgeous and fun projects from common household objects like toilet paper rolls, fabric scraps, even sticks and twigs from the back yard.
"If you scan the space which you are sitting at right now, you will find you are surrounded by numerous objects you don't use very often," Maor says. "Those objects can easily be turned into a fun project. There is beauty in appreciating reused items and seeing everything - old and new alike – as art."
Maor is sharing some of her favorite projects in her new book, The Craft Kingdom: DIY Craft Projects for Kids and Adults.
The Craft Kingdom is the one-stop-shop for all things DIY. It contains more than 90 crafts and projects, organized by subjects like: paints, nature-inspired, stamps, washi tape, soap making, candle making, recycling art, repurposing, beauty accessories, fabric and textile projects, buttons, paper and even paper napkins. Each project contains a supply list and detailed, colorful, picture-filled tutorial. At the end of the book there is a section for stencils to trace shapes needed for the projects, leaving no stone unturned as you dive into creating.
Immediately available for an interview or bylined article, Maor can discuss topics such as:

Eli Maor was raised in a creative home. Her parents owned a publishing house and as a child she would lose herself in the bright colors and beautiful fonts. Her love for art and creativity continued into adulthood. She obtained a bachelor of arts in media and business management, and went on to study interior design. While obtaining her degrees, she sold handmade crafts at art fairs and booths.
Her first book, The Craft Kingdom, came after years of creating, teaching workshops, and a whole lot of DIY fun.
Maor shares crafting videos on her YouTube channel, The Craft Kingdom. You can also connect with her on Facebook, Instagram and Etsy.
