Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People! -- upon which the video above is based -- was released in November 2010 after years of Sedaris slyly showing off her "crafty" side in books like I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and brownie-baking demonstrations at places like the 2006 Texas Book Festival.

And because I already know you're going to want more of the wonderful wackiness seen above, here's a video of Amy Sedaris making "potato ships" while wearing fake nails and gingham panties.

You're welcome.
