Cheap crafts, cheap laughs

While it's unlikely you'll actually make any of her campy crafts, Amy Sedaris' latest book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People will keep you laughing and maybe even get the creative juices flowing. The book pokes fun at the state of the economy and is laced with Amy's candid humor. It's certainly not for the serious crafter, and a lot of the projects will take you back to your arts and craft days at summer camp. I find in the photo spreads of Amy in costume, the illustrations, and prop styling to be my favorite, and the most inspiring, part. It's also one of those books where you don't have to read the chapters in order, so it's great when you don't have a lot of time. If you can't get to the book store, Amazon lets you browse through a handful of pages.

Also check out Amy's other book I like you: Hospitality Under the Influence for a humorous take on entertaining.
