Simple Times: Crafts for poor people By Amy Sedaris


While browsing Etsy the other day I came across this article and HAD to share it with everyone!


"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 cant wait to go get this book...it will be so different than any of the crafts books I have!

click here to read the whole article...which is really funny..i think you should read it!

This was my favorite part of the article


 The Ten Commandments of Crafting
I. Remember the crafting day, to keep it hobby.

II. Thou shalt not attempt crafting beyond thy intellectual capacity — a nitwit can't knit.

III. Thou shalt not craft graven images of thy neighbor's wife.

IV. Thou shalt remember to replace the glue cap so the top of the bottle doesn't dry out and then thou hast to get a pin to poke a hole but the glue never really flows as well as it did before.

V. Thou shalt not fill envelopes with glitter and confetti and send them in the mail.

VI. Thou shalt remember that popsicle stick crafts only have the illusion of being structurally sound.

VII. Thou shalt not force a mollusk out of its shell by boiling it alive but rather coax it out with a fork when making a shell necklace.

VII. This craft book, which towers above all other craft books, is a jealous craft book. Thou shalt have no other craft books before it.

IX. Remember to honor thy crafting and pastimes for they are a great way to get your mind off all the damage thy parents did. 

X. Thou shall not covet thy neighbor's crafts, even though those crafts look like they are supposed to, and thouist crafts resemble a random pile of yarn.


Might just frame this and put it in my craft room ;)

 hope y'all have a great weekend!!!
