Library Journal - BookSmack!
Barseghian (Get a Hobby!: 101 All-Consuming Diversions for Any Lifestyle) covers all areas of creating the perfect homemade, frugal Christmas. She pays special attention to kid-friendly recipes and activities for families with little ones. The book is divided into the sections "Greeting," "Trimming," "Cooking," "Giving," and "Celebrating." Activities run the gamut from how to send "Hi-Tech" holiday messages to knitting a hat to how to throw a "Giving Party." Some of the activities do presume prior experience with the skills needed, but most are easily accessible to newbies.I Would Give This to Those interested in the DIY/makers scene trying to save a buck while celebrating and anyone looking for an all-in-one Christmas craft book. .
