Look What You Can Make with Boxes

We just got our set of four craft books from Highlights magazine in the mail and my daughter is pretty excited about diving right into the projects they describe. The book Look What You

Can Make With Boxes: Over 90 Pictured Crafts and Dozens of Other Ideas seems to be her favorite so far. It’s a good thing we keep most of our boxes once we’re finished with them; however, I can already tell that we’re going to need a bigger box for a couple of the crafts, including a dollhouse she wants to make for her animals and a kid-sized car to drive.

Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People by Amy Sedaris

"America's most delightfully unconventional hostess and the bestselling author of I Like You (entertaining under the influence) delivers a new book that will forever change the world of crafting. According to Amy Sedaris, it's often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her new book, SIMPLE TIMES, she sets the record straight. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life's more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows that anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters."

I have always been a big fan of Amy (so I might be a little bias) - but I have got to tell you, this book is the best!
