Last month I attended the annual Red Cross Book Sale in my city. I bought a ton of books at great prices, among my purchases was one book that really disappointed me. 50 christmas crafts by Penny Boylan.
The book sale was very crowded and I did not take the time to glance thru this book before buying it.
After I got home and had the time to give 50 Christmas Crafts a glance, I understood why someone donated this book to the sale... it is awful. The photos are nice, but all 50 of the crafts are terrible. I could not imagine making any of these ugly things to give away or use as a decoration.
The instructions seem easy enough, they are step by step instructions, but still, I cannot see myself wasting the time to make any of these hideous crafts!
some of the crafts include gaudy wineglasses, velvet fruits and a really ugly citrus centerpeice which is nothing more than organges with chunks of the peel cut out.
I plan to donate this book back to the Red Cross for their sale next year, I would not recommend anyone pick up a copy of this book.
