Gifts from the past

I know, I know it's time to go out and spend money and shop and buy presents for people.  For those short on cash but with lots of creative spirit have I found the book for you.  I spied it out of the corner of my eye, and it was too irresistible to pass up.

The Complete Book of Retro Crafts is the place to go for all of your holiday gift needs.  The photos are fabulous and will spark your inner crafter.  You can make an trinket box incrusted with shells, a pine cone elf, reinbeers and more!  The photos are interspersed with lots of retro clip art and frankly the whole book is a lot more fun than standing in line waiting to buy gift cards.  A chapter on glitter, a pillbox party hat, a pantyhose poodle, need I say more?
Lots of helpful hints, lists of materials and tools needed, very clear instructions and an afternoon of fun.  Gather your friends around for a Sunday crafternoon and find something to make for everyone on your shopping list.  Even if you're a craft klutz you'll definitely enjoy paging through some of these ideas - who knows maybe you'll be inspired to join the crafting revolution.
