A-Z Wednesday Challenge. We're up to the letter K and this week I have a fun book to share -- Kitschy Crafts, written by Jo Packham and Matt Shay. I haven't read it yet, but I've requested it from the library and it should be in my hot little hands in a day or two. When I discovered it online, I just knew I had to have a look!
Along with the great retro cover art, it was this description of the book that captured my attention: "It's fun, it's retro—and it's back in style. Take a fond look back at the kitschy crafts of the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s, from crocheted doilies to shell-art nightlights. All these nostalgic creations appear in appropriately fashioned period settings that will captivate browsers, and come with instructions for those who just can’t resist creating their own string-art pictures, pink flamingo items, far-out tie dyes, kooky candles, macramé plant hangers, and the one-time must-have on every coffee table: a resin-cast grape cluster. And, of course, who can live without the hottest toy of all? The Sock Monkey Doll. Everyone will have a blast poring over these—even those who have never made a craft in their lives."
Doesn't that sound amazing? Tie dye, macramé, sock monkeys! I can't wait to read this one.
