It has been so cold and snowy lately that almost everyone is getting a bit of cabin fever. With cabin fever comes that antsy feeling of wanting to do something fun and different, but what? We just got in a few books that could get your creative side motivated.
It has been said that I have a bit of an obsession with duct tape. I must have at least a dozen different colors, designs and widths, so when I saw Ductigami: the Art of the Tape I was ecstatic! It contains projects ranging from cup holders to shower curtains. A must read for duct tape aficionados.
The next antidote to cabin fever is a book entitled Zombie Felties: How to raise 16 gruesome felt creatures from the undead. It contains patterns and instructions for whipping up adorable zombies with names like Zombie bunny, Zombie fairy and Pirate zombie. Instructions for all of the stitches needed are in the front of the book.
If you have made it out of the house, you have probably seen one or more rubber band bracelets. They are everywhere right now. If you ask a grade school student if they have a loom, not only will they know what you are talking about but they will more than likely answer with a very emphatic yes! So this last book will come in handy with instructions for different bracelets, belts and even charms. Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry will be a hit with the loom crowd.
The library is even getting in on the rubber band loom craze by having a BYOL (Bring Your Own Loom) party on March 24th at 4pm. Bring your loom in and we will supply the rubber bands. If you do not own a loom we will have a few to loan out for the program.
So, until we finally begin to have a spring thaw and are not inside as much, stop by the library and pick up a book or two of fun crafts to keep you and the kids busy.
