Review quote

Praise for Keri Smith "Keri Smith may well be the self-help guru this DIY generation deserves." --The Believer "A conceptual artist and author luring kids into questioning the world and appreciating every smell, texture and mystery in it." --TIME Magazine Praise for Wreck This Journal "Wreck This Journal encourages you to stop fretting about quality and start relishing the artistic process." --Oprah.com "I love this book and the playful way that Keri Smith teaches people the act of creating by putting you right on the spot. Wreck This Journal is a fun, interactive book that you will want to work in every day. To create is to destroy, and this book delivers." --D*I*Y Planner "No matter where you start or where you end, there's always something interesting to do. . . . The book is an exploration into creativity." --Buffalo News

"The ideal gift for artistic minded people, or not, for that matter, as what I love about this book is that there is no right or wrong. Neat, messy, colorful, dark, you can wreck however you want." --Hawwa, etc. "I've kept journals before, but have never written in them as frequently as I write in my Wreck This Journal. It is great for inspiration; it gives you tasks that are thought-provoking rather than pages of endless blank lines. It is a great way to pass the time and a great gift for anyone, no matter how young or old." --Teen Ink "Wreck this Journal makes a great gift for someone who's going through a stressful time, needs a form of release, or anyone who could use a few minutes of fun." --Jactionary "Wreck This Journal encourages you to experiment and have fun. . . . Flip to any page in the book and you will find a prompt: fun prompts, destructive prompts, creative prompts to help your creative juices flow." --Craft Critique "Calling all bookworms and creative doodlers, Wreck This Journal is the perfect book to spruce up your summer. . . . It's a wonderful stress reliever and brings out the inner childish behavior we are so often told to get over. You won't be disappointed." --Kristine Marie Babauta, Marianas Variety
