Everything you need to stitch your brains out! Every undead heart will be warmed by these gruesome and hilarious cross-stitch projects.

The 411:

Way back in the day I loved doing Latch Hook and Cross Stitch. I haven't done either one in forever. I remember always having my cross stitch in a bag with me so I could do it on the train going to work. It was so relaxing. I cannot wait to get back into it. 

The packaging is amazing on this. I love the Zombie on the front with the peep-hole showing his red, yarn guts coming out.  Packaging is so important and they really put their heads together with this one.  Beside the amazing packaging the kit comes with everything you need to make the first 3 projects in the book.  The books seems fairly easy but I have never had a cross stitch come out well that wasn't already stamped on so we shall see.

Let the Force and this kit guide you to great artwork! Learn to draw and paint your favorite Star Wars characters! Easy-to-follow instructions and details will help you create your favorite characters just like the professionals. Included in the kit are 3 watercolor paints, 2 paintbrushes, a palette, a drawing pencil, 7 colored pencils, a fine-line marker, a kneaded eraser, a sharpener, and a 96-page project book to bring these characters to life! Greeting cards, party decorations, and lunchbox surprises are more fun when you make them yourself, and this Star Wars Art Studio kit (April 2018; ISBN: 978-1684122134; $24.99) will help you get started!

I was really impressed with this art set. Besides the superb packaging that features a Darth Vader putting out the vibe with his glossy pants, boots and cape the kit comes with everything an artist would need from pencils, erases sharpener and a colorful step by step book on how to draw your favorite characters.  This is a great gift idea for any Star Wars fans. 

You’ll be amazed as the spiraling lines transform into images of famous cityscapes. Spiroglyphics: Cities (July 2018; ISBN: 978-1684122790; $14.99) features a new type of mind-bending graphic puzzle from Thomas Pavitte, best-selling author of the 1000 Dot-to-Dot and Querkles series. At first, all you see are simple spirals. But when you look a little closer and start to color between the lines, you'll see a city scene begin to take shape—and when you're finished, you'll have a masterpiece worthy of being framed on your wall. This globe-trotting collection of 20 puzzles includes grand destinations such as New York, London, Paris, Athens, Singapore, and more. Grab your passport, pick up a felt-tip pen, and transform a set of simple lines into an amazing work of art!

The 411:

My daughter and I were amazing by this as we had never heard of it or seen one of these.  You simply color between the lines and before you know one of 20 destinations start to appear. It is definitely one of those things you sit and do when you want to unplug. This is not something you can do while watching TV. I messed up one because I thought I will do something while my husband and I watch a movie. doesn't work. You need to pay attention.
