Etsy is great. Etsy is wonderful. Etsy can also be hilarious. I know it’s bad form to poke fun at those trying hard and jolly well enjoying themselves. I wouldn’t do that. But these people will… Regretsy — where DIY meets WTF.
You get the idea. Regretsy and Etsy are such great successes because the crafting movement is huge. However, some of it is not quite the craft it is cracked up to be.
There’s even a Regretsy book! Great gift for the crochet-fiend or mosaic-maniac in your family. I think, however, if I gave one to Aunty Elsey she’d probably burst into tears and throw it in the fire.
Read the first few pages that are permitted under the “Click to see inside this book!” option. It’s funny and illuminating and reveals the author not to be a complete arsehole after all. Regretsy and Etsy have a symbiotic relationship happening. And it seems to be working for everyone.
You can view/purchase/whatever the Regretsy book here…
