Book review: Crafts, laughs and getting over your ex

If you're ridin' the struggle bus and it's currently parked in Splitsville, then Lynn Chang's The Break-Up Activity Book: Crafting Your Way Through a Broken Heart is just for you. Her solution to mending a broken heart, through creative and hilar craft ideas, follows three stages of recovery. The "Getting Started" section at the beginning even offers a fun way to alter a chocolate box to fit a melancholy mood, perfect for Valentine's Day.  Her simple designs are full of therapeutic, artsy projects to let you embrace your feelings and then move forward with your life. Grab this book, some basic craft materials, and your sense of humor, and you'll be ready to embark on Chang's unique path of healing.
While we don't advocate destroying your ex's sweatshirt to make a hot drink holder or a punching bag, the mere thought is pretty satisfying. If you'll be seeing your ex around quite a bit (ahem, second period algebra?), avoid the bridge-burning crafts (like slicing up his possessions) and put your own positive spin on Chang's directions. Use your own stuff to be crafty, but don't feel bad about enjoying this book's clever (though sometimes destructive) art project descriptions to work through breakup emotions.

Break-Up Activity Book: Crafting Your Way Through a Broken Heart, $11, (Released on Jan. 5)
