New book is guide to variety of craft techniques

Want to try your hand at a new creative pursuit?

“Craft: Techniques & Pro-jects” can get you started.

The book is a comprehensive guide to a variety of craft techniques, written by top crafters in their fields.

The authors teach the basics of each craft through words and photos, and then offer a project to let you practice the techniques.

The crafts in the book are appropriate for beginners as well as seasoned crafters, and they don’t require a lot of specialized equipment.

Included are textile crafts, paper crafts, jewelry, ceramics, glass, candles, soap and eco crafts.

“Craft: Techniques & Projects” is published by DK Publishing and is priced at $40 in hardcover.

Aqueduck Products make it easier for children to use sink

Aqueduck Products make it easier for children to use the bathroom sink without help from Mom or Dad.

The company makes a faucet extender that funnels water forward in the sink so little hands can reach the water.

Its handle extender attaches to a handle of a double-handle faucet to enable kids to turn it.

For safety reasons the handle extender is recommended for use only on the cold-water side.

The faucet extender comes in five colors and sells for $12.99 at www.peachyco.com.

The handle extender is expected to be available this month for $19.99. Shipping is extra.
