Raise your hand if you saw a beautiful photo on Pinterest and just had to make it?
Keep your hand up if you actually went through with the project.
Hold your hand high if that Pinteresting project was an epic craft fail!
You are in good company.
Heather Mann even wrote the book on it…
When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong
It’s a humorous compendium of real-life attempts to re-create the inspiring images seen on the internet or elsewhere.
I shared the book with my friend and she laughed all the way through it.
Most of us will relate to miss-reading instructions, skipping the instructions completely, or discovering there’s a missing ingredient in the recipe or tutorial resulting in a hot mess.
It’s a fun coffee table book or gift for a crafting buddy. One that will get picked up often.
Heather Mann, the founder of CraftFail.com and DollarStoreCrafts.com, has been crafting with middling success all her life, but blogging expertly since 2000. She is also cofounder of The Blueprint Social, a social media consulting company and network of influential bloggers, and co-host of the web show Get a Little Creative. She lives and crafts in Salem, Oregon.
