Crafts Are Crap

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Crafting can sometimes produce truly regrettable goods.

Regretsy.com features the terrible, tacky handmade crafts created by wannabe artists and sold on Etsy.com, an online crafts boutique.

While some may find a mounted masturbating T-Rex, a plushy felt placenta, or corn-filled poop-shaped soap a nice addition to their home, others might have to admit these knick-knacks are pretty awful according to site creator “Helen Killer.”

Though she points out each item’s tackiness, Killer encourages crafters to keep making their mediocre art.

She adds, “Everybody should enjoy their self-expression, they just shouldn’t expect everyone else to enjoy their self-expression. It’s like William Shatner. Not a lot of people think he’s great, but he’s made millions.”

Just like Shatner, many regrettable crafts have actually made their creators a few bucks, so Killer assures that crafters should keep pursuing their DIY dreams.
