Simple Times!

I just ordered Simple Times: Crafting for poor people (the new Amy Sedaris book) I'm so excited!!! After I ordered it I thought to myself, why didn't you just go to the bookstore, you could have had it instantly in your hands? Well self, because you weren't thinking and now you have to wait 3-5 days, jump on it AMAZON, I want to craft super hard right now :)

P.s. I love the interview Amy did with etsy

The Ten Commandments of Crafting are so good:

I. Remember the crafting day, to keep it hobby.

II. Thou shalt not attempt crafting beyond thy intellectual capacity — a nitwit can't knit.

III. Thou shalt not craft graven images of thy neighbor's wife.

IV. Thou shalt remember to replace the glue cap so the top of the bottle doesn't dry out and then thou hast to get a pin to poke a hole but the glue never really flows as well as it did before.

V. Thou shalt not fill envelopes with glitter and confetti and send them in the mail.

VI. Thou shalt remember that popsicle stick crafts only have the illusion of being structurally sound.

VII. Thou shalt not force a mollusk out of its shell by boiling it alive but rather coax it out with a fork when making a shell necklace.

VII. This craft book, which towers above all other craft books, is a jealous craft book. Thou shalt have no other craft books before it.

IX. Remember to honor thy crafting and pastimes for they are a great way to get your mind off all the damage thy parents did.

X. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's crafts, even though those crafts look like they are supposed to, and thouist crafts resemble a random pile of yarn.

Super jealous of her crafty space!

If you have the book already let me know of all of it's magic :)

I pre-ordered it and am anxiously awaiting it! But be proud of yourself for not going to the bookstore to get it: it would have been 10 bucks more!

This book looks 'very Katy' and a lot of fun. Let us know what it's like! Maybe I should add it to the old Christmas list.
