Getting Crafty

Summer is just around the corner and now is the time to be thinking about ways to keep busy.  Often thoughts are directed at making money:  to save for college; to earn money to help out at home; to have spending money for the swimming pool, movies, concerts or grabbing a burger.  One way to stave off boredom and maybe even make some money is to tap into your creative powers.  Crafts are fun, make terrific gifts and are popular selling items at festivals, fairs and even yard sales.  Here are samples of crafts made in programs at the Fountain Square Library and a few titles of books available to spark your ideas.  Happy Crafting!
