Regretsy

I recently started checking out regretsy... http://www.regretsy.com/ and I was just wondering what other people thought of it.

Some of it makes me laugh out loud but at the same time I feel so bad for the people that are being mocked.

Just wondered if anybody else had thought on it... Happy

P.s

I'm not on it... to my knowledge or any other CO+Keepers!

usually she is very funny! and even if she is kinda mocking the craft- she does bring attention to these shops, most of them get sales. plus she does raise money for some great charities- so regresty is cool in my book. i hope if i am ever on there, i will accept it with grace and class Happy
however, her followers that comment on the blog can be really mean sometimes!

I know! Happy I just needed to check it wasn't just me finding it hilarious as I do still get a little pang of sympathy for the poor people who may be a little deluded! Ha!

I hope I'm never on it... but then again it may shoot me to crafting fame for all the wrong reasons!

Can't believe I only just found it I must have been under a rock!

I often check out regretsy for a laugh too...the comments are funny too!
The strange thing is, from time to time I see something and think to myself " that's actually quite nice!"

I'm always afraid something I make will end up on there! I felt sorry for the people who's stuff ended up there at first, but actually it's quite good for their businesses to end up on Regretsy. A lot of that stuff ends up selling!

It's the vagina crafts that get me. Oh and the 'things that are not steampunk' genre. x

I was on Regretsy for hours last night. There were a lot of "wtf" moments. My favorite though, is where this guy put a couple of leggos together and claimed it was a cloud, and then had the nerve to say he had a intellectual copywright and that no one was allowed to use his idea.

She was like, dude, they're leggos. You can't copywright that. And you're not allowed to use the internet, cause I have a website so I own it. It was so funny.

The manscaping dvd she posted is still something I'm giggling over. (shame on me lol) and I love the items you can "view in a room". There are some incredible monsterpieces out there! Another site I love that's similar is <a href:"http://craftastrophe.net/">Craftastrophe</a> Currently there's a post involving real fly leg eyelashes. Flylashes. Wtf :p
