If you ain’t failing, you ain’t crafting. You learn that the moment you pick up your first glue gun. The life of a DIYer is filled with fingers stuck together, glitter in places you didn’t know existed and heads hitting desks as you realize that what you just made in no way, shape or form resembles what you first saw on Pinterest.
Heather Mann created the site CraftFail to serve as a repository of all of those moments you just totally nailed it. When you screw up as often as I do, you need a place to giggle along with people who share the same passions. CraftFail only accepts self-submitted failures, so no turning in your mom’s best friend’s cousin who totally ruined that baby hat she attempted to knit after she found the pattern online.
Now CraftFail is a book! That’s right…Pinterest worthy inspiration lined up side by side with the goopy, droopy results. There’s even an entire section devoted to the crafts inspired by Martha Stuart. You know, the woman who launched a few million crafting disasters. Baking challenged? There are foodie fails covered, too.
CraftFail is available now at Amazon. It’s the perfect gift for the crafter in your life. Or for yourself. Or buy if for yourself and then give it as a gift. I won’t judge.
