One of the positive things that comes from packing (besides stronger arms and getting rid of junk!!! LOL) is finding some unexpected surprises in the ‘sea of boxes’ that awaits in the basement.
Yesterday, we managed almost 8 hours of packing in total and really took a good ‘chunk’ out of what needs to still be done.
One of the ‘finds’ yesterday was 2 remaining boxes of my craft book, A Year of Crafts, which was published in 1995. Here is the editorial description for the book:
A Year of Crafts For Children & Adults
Imaginative craft projects, many with seasonal themes, provide year-round pleasure. Each two-page spread features one child’s and one adult’s craft with photographs and detailed material and assembly instructions. Ideal for gift giving, many crafts use materials found in your home. Crafts include fabric, seed, dough, bead jewellery, wood, pet toys, hair accessories and dozens of other types of crafts and materials. Suitable for age 6 and up.
6″ x 9″; wire coil bound; 104 black & white; 9 color photographs . Retail price 12.95
Many, many hours of work went into this book too. For years, most Saturdays were spent with my mom, designing and putting together the latest craft project, just in time for another week’s column in our local paper.
Two years after beginning my craft column (alternating weeks, one adult, one children’s project) I was approached by the Leader Post about putting together a book, complete with color photos etc… Many months later, A Year of Crafts was published. I continued with my newspaper columns as well, for almost 5 years, before moving on to other projects.
So, what to do with these ‘found’ craft books? I decided to offer them to my Veggie….readers first, as a gift with purchase, with my Christmas Cookbook Sale on til October 25th.
