Regretsy

Regretsy is like the cakewrecks of the crafting world. (tagline: "Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet.) It's been quite the controversy on the etsy forums for being mean, but what can I say? You pair funny writing and mockery together and I'm there. That said, the entire site is aimed at really really misguied craftiness, and has turned out to be crazy good publicity for the individual shops. (The $5 paperclip on a thread necklace sold, for instance) In any case, I think it's funny. And horrifying. Go see what I mean.

  2. Oh, I feel so torn about that site. I agree with the commentary 90% of the time, but I know I would burst into tears if I ever found something of mine there. I guess... it's a lesson not to take ourselves too seriously?

    That tagline is pretty brilliant, though.
