Bless This Mother-effing Home is a book of sweet stitches for snarky bitches. I have seen some similar crafts online and always get a good laugh out of them so when I saw there was a whole book of them, created by someone else named Katie, I had to check it out. Cross-stitch is a craft I have done before with some success, provided that it is printed and not counted. Katie has been selling her crafts on her etsy page but after getting some publicity on the show GIRLS things have taken off for her. The cross stitches in the book are all cutesy and adorable, as one would expect, but the text on them are a bit unexpected and anyone with a sense of humor would surely find one or five that they feel the need to have in their home. My favorites are probably the ones based on rap lyrics like “mo money mo problems” and “y’all gonna make me lose my mind up in here, up in here”. If you don’t crack a smile at least once when reading through this book you may need to consult a doctor.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
