Do you guys love Amy Sedaris? I find her hilarious! I was introduced to her first craft book, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence, from one of my husband's aunts. She received the book for Christmas and I immediately had to get my own copy.
Her second book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People just came out this past fall. My mom got me the book for Christmas and I'm just now finding time at night to sit down with it.
What I love most about Amy Sedaris is how she writes as though she were completely serious in this text, giving materials needed and specific instructions on how to create crafts and recipes, and then piles on the humor.
Her project lists are many but some favorites of mine include the wishbone slingshot (how beautiful) and the soup can stilts! I think I made some of those as a kid...But my absolute favorite was the Penny and Packing Tape Bookmark! I was so excited I had to make one to show you. Took me all of three minutes and cost less than a quarter! Ha!
Anyone else currently reading this? What are your thoughts? Do you actually make any of the crafts/recipes in the book or just laugh your butt off while you're eating Ben & Jerry's at night?
