For Christmas this year I got a few crafting and embroidery books. One of these books is “Simple Times: Crafts for Poor” People by Amy Sedaris.
Amy Sedaris is pretty much the best ever. If you don’t know who she is, you should watch Strangers with Candy and try not to laugh. Amy wrote/starred in Strangers with Candy with Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello. She also has a cupcake and cheeseball business out of her apartment, and has another book titled “I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence.”
This book is seriously funny. It mixes in real projects with ridiculous ones, funny photos, and topics.
My favorite part of this books is that all of the little details are embroidered. It is so cute and imperfect- I love it. The embroidery is all done by Megan Whitmarsh.
Even if you aren’t a crafty gal or guy, this book is absolutely worth taking a look at.
