Not all of us were born with the ability to decoupage, quilt, dip-dye or any of the other worldly skills of the Martha Stewart’s of the world. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have fun trying. March is National Craft Month, and while crafting can be enjoyed year-round, now’s a good time to finally start or finish that project you’ve been putting off for awhile. A great place to look for project inspiration for you or your crafty friends is this hilarious guide from Amy Sedaris: Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.
Don’t be shocked by the name, this book is anything but serious. Sedaris doesn’t need a stage to practice her flair for comedy. Having appeared in numerous TV roles and a best-selling humorist for a brother, it’s obvious that comedy is in her genes. What’s not as well known, is her serious DIY skills. This lady knows her way around a glue gun. This book is all about learning how to do easy and affordable crafts with a dash of her trademark satire thrown in. After receiving her guide on hospitality as a present in the past, I ‘m looking forward to getting my hands on this book and maybe some pipe cleaners and doilies while I’m at it.
