So, I've staggered over to the computer (I'm battling a massive headache - I think we've reached an impasse;) because I kept having the idea of 'Fun Stuff Friday'. I thought I would share any amusing craft-related (mostly) stuff from the week.
This weeks winner, hands down, is the freakin' HILARIOUS book my gal pal Rachel gave me this week. It's called 'Simple Times - Crafts for Poor People' by Amy Sedaris. It is a side-splitting tongue-in-cheek book about crafting. It's full of amusing pictures, poems and articles such as crafts for the 'handicraftable' (which includes CUI: Crafting Under the Influence) but I think Rachel's and my favourite chapter so far is the 'Safety Meeting'
Here is a short excerpt:
"The best protection from crafting injuries is to avoid other crafters. This is not a general dismissal of crafting clubs or a negative judgement about those who choose to craft in pairs, including same-sex crafting or even mulitple-partner crafting known as 'decoupage a trois'. This just means that when crafting with others, take sensible precautions. Don't share buttons. Divvy up felt scraps before crafting. Never go dutch on the dry flowers."
There are actually a couple of recipes in the 'Confectioneries' chapter that sound tempting - such as Rich Cocoa Fudge and Ooey Gooey Bars, but considering that a few chapters on it suggests that dried bean pods make wonderful exotic instruments in the bedroom....maybe it's safer if I give the recipes a miss ;)
Meanwhile, I shall leave you with another image from the Safety Meeting chapter - about the importance of Stretching Before Crafting ;)
Happy Friday Bloggers!
