I am quite the crafty person, as you have probably already guessed. I’ve always got multiple projects going. My big problem and I do mean big is that I am not the cutesy crafter type. I hate the traditional projects you see in books where everything is sweet and pink with delicate ivory lace all over it. I want edgy stuff which luckily has become a little easier to find. Apparently I wasn’t the only frustrated crafter. I was talking to a friend tonight and she told me about this book called Anticraft. She was looking for something different as well and came across it. I borrowed it and after spending a few minutes looking through it I promptly ordered it. The full title is Anticraft: Knitting, Beading and Stitching for the Slightly Sinister. The title alone is cool, but I do like to think that I am more than just slightly sinister. At first glance the cover is not very interesting and may not look like it has anything in it worth looking at. Wrong. This is a perfect example of “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”. Wonderful things await you inside. The whole layout of the book is nice and creepy with great photographs and includes knitting, crocheting, sewing and jewelry projects. The book even includes tips and sidebars that will help you embrace your dark nature. The authors also have a website where you can get even more of your Anticraft on. Love, love, love it!

Witch Boot

Witch Boot PincushionNow I don’t really like to sew, but this little Witch Boot Pincushion just might help me enjoy it more. I need something to help me enjoy it since I’m always having to fix some piece of clothing or another. I constantly put mending off until someone in my family finally starts yelling loud enough. Maybe they could fix their own clothes. Yeah! That might be asking a little too much from this lazy crowd I call a family. It doesn’t say what it’s made of, but it looks like the boot part is some kind of metal and it’s a good size at 11″ tall. Maybe if it’s heavy enough I can use it as a weapon against my family. Of course I would just use it to threaten, but they don’t know that. If it’s that time of the month anything could happen! As they know from past experience Scary Jane can go ape sh*t at the drop of a pin. However bad, pun was intended.
