Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People - Amy Sedaris This is a craft book for people like me, totally untalented when it comes to hand made items, but would love to try them. I tried the cereal box bookmarks which turned out to be a little bit unwieldy and thick to actually use, but, hey, it was worth a try. I did find a use for all of the seed pods in my yard from sweet gum trees...stick toothpicks in them and spray paint them gold and call them stars or asteroids! Now that is fun! They would look awfully cute on a Christmas tree and perfect gifts for those people you don't like. This book is the answer for non parents to make stuff for parents who are constantly giving you artwork from their offspring to pay them back.
