This year alone, 13 million people will shed salty tears for someone truly unworthy. Enter Lynn Chang. She may be happily married now, but she knows her way around a break up—and the value of a good revenge craft. In The Break-Up Activity Book, Lynn offers clever projects to help recycle the debris of a break up. Who knew how many things you could make out of his favorite shirt, his silk ties, his precious baseball cards, or even his remotes? For the heartbroken with a sense of humor, this colorful, whimsically illustrated book is the perfect gift.

More sympathetic than a well-intentioned mother, The Break-Up Activity Book addresses all the stages of heartache: anger, revenge, recovery, and, to start, the ever-important wallow. Go ahead, take as long as you need.

Watch Lynn demonstrate the making of a revenge craft below:

“Full of therapeutic, artsy projects to let you embrace your feelings and then move forward with your life.” – Girls’ Life

Watch Lynn talk with KTLA’s Michaela Pereira about ditching winter heartache to make room for spring romance here.

Watch Lynn talk about exes, revenge, and Drive-By Bingo on San Diego Living here.
