Read in December, 2010

It was a real struggle to get through this! I love Amy Sedaris, and thought her first book (I Like You) was great. While the photos here are hilarious, I dreaded the text! And I thought that she had to dip into things that weren't crafting-related (sex, sausage making, baking) because she didn't have enough ground to cover with the crafts. And Jean and Gene Woodchuck had to go. I breathed a sigh of relief when I was done.

On the upside, there are one or two good recipes in here, and the photos (especially at the end) are great - really funny stuff. And my mom flipped through it while babysitting and got very confused, thinking it was a 'real' book on crafting. . . which pretty much made suffering through this worthwhile.
