Overview
Whether it's sewing clothes, making cheese, or growing a garden, the modern appeal of "do-it-yourself" projects has a broader reach than ever. And who better to teach us how to DIY our lives than the uber-crafty editors of BUST, the quirky, raw, and real magazine "for women who have something to get off their chests"? In The BUST DIY Guide to Life, magazine founders Debbie Stoller (of Stitch 'n Bitch fame) and Laurie Henzel have culled more than 250 of the best DIY and craft projects from its 15-year history. Organized by category--beauty and health, fashion, food and entertaining, career, finance, travel, and sex--and written in BUST's trademark brazen and witty style, this quintessential DIY encyclopedia from the quintessential DIY magazine is eclectic, empowering, hilarious, and downright practical, truly capturing the spirit of women today.

Praise for the BUST DIY Guide to Life:

"This lifestyle manual will come in handy when you need anything from a headache remedy to a dirt-cheap wedding." --Entertainment Weekly

"Has tips on beauty, fashion, and finance, too, all with attitude. But our dog-eared pages? Decorating, all the way." -- Los Angeles Times

"It's a rare do-it-yourself book that combines instructions for both homemade pot holders and Tantric sex. But The Bust DIY Guide to Life isn't your typical how-to manual. The book, by Bust magazine cofounders Laurie Henzel and Debbie Stoller, is an irreverent yet informative guide to much of what life throws your way--removing laundry stains, lubricating a bicycle chain, even planning a wedding on the cheap." --Akron Beacon Journal

"Looking for one source to provide answers on how to do practical things? This is it A friendly compendium that shows you (with many pictures and diagrams) how to replace a broken zipper, make soap, turn your bell bottoms into straight-leg jeans, how to buy an old house, how to buy a vintage car, how to skateboard and lots more." --The Fresno Bee
