Amy Sedaris on Craft Magazine Cover

by on February 9, 2009 · 54 comments

Hey crafty people! Amy Sedaris is the cover girl for the next issue of Craft magazine. It goes out tomorrow, and I thought I’d mention it early so you could camp out by your mailbox or get to the bookstore *right* when it opens. Here’s a sneak preview of the cover, and guess what? I’m going to give away a couple of copies.

For a free copy of Craft magazine, please post a hospitality/party tip in the comments section. Deadline is tomorrow at 7:00 AM.  Winners drawn at random.

My tip is “Don’t drop your cake on the floor!” It may not sound like a good tip, but if you’re prone to dropping cakes it’s helpful because you’ll be more careful as you move through space with the cake. With this tip in mind, I haven’t dropped a cake in 4 years…or at least a birthday cake.

So please post a tip. Valentine’s Day party tips are extremely appreciated, but all types party tips are welcome.  Oh, and look for Craft Magazine. 

P.S. If you don’t care for crafts, there’s a cake recipe there too.

My tip is “don’t ever point out your flaws!” People aren’t going to realize your brownies don’t look as pretty as usual or that you didn’t have time to make the beds etc etc… unless you point it out!

Be calm. It’s kind of my mantra for everything, but it’s easy to forget when you’re the host. Every doily does not need to be in place for your party to still be awesome.

Amy Sedaris is HILARIOUS!! I’m a big fan. And if you’re interested, I’ve heard Joe’s Bakery in nyc sometimes sells her cupcakes.

I know I’m too late, but my Mom always used to lay out all of the plates and bowls and serving utensils — cleaned and polished — the night before with little notes next to them for what food was going to go where. It not only helped you organize your mind regarding everything that needed to get done, but also took care of one big task the night before, and made it easier for any girlfriends who arrived early to help to actually BE helpful without being underfoot!

This is definitely one I have adopted!!
