In my world there is a line. On one side are fun crafts that allow you to have quality items in your closet and in your home. On the other side are crafts that scare me and should be reserved for that time in our lives when we need to keep our hands busy. Namely, the nursing home.
I check out the Complete Embellishing Techniques and Projects book (by Creative Homeowner) from the library. And was scared, immediately. It was a manual in what not to do with your talent. Seriously, walk into a room with any of these embellishments and folk will walk the other way.
It's a laugh, but don't bother. Unless, of course, you need ideas for the next Ugly Sweater Party you attend.
