Why Your Crafts Shouldn’t be Pinterest Perfect

Posted on

It’s happened to us all… you are surfing through Pinterest and there it is- the perfect craft!  It looks amazing and would go perfectly in your home.  Excitedly, you print out your Michael’s, AC Moore, or Hobby Lobby coupon and run to the nearest crafting store to buy all the project accouterments that you don’t already have stashed away in your craft room.  At each red light on the way home, you peer into the little plastic bag thrown on your passenger seat making sure you didn’t forget anything.  You barely have one foot in the door when the crafting begins.  After hours, days, or even weeks hunched over your craft table… it’s complete.  You hold it up to the light to get a better look… and it looks like your 4 year old niece made it!  You’ve spent who-knows-how-many pain staking hours, not to mention an arm and a leg purchasing all the supplies, and you are too embarrassed to display it in your home.. but it cost too much to throw away, so you keep it stashed away in the closet in your crafting room, never to be seen again.  For this very reason, I love this article on Why Your Crafts Shouldn’t be Pinterest Perfect from momsandcrafters.com. So click on the image below, read the full article, and display those less-than-perfect crafts with pride!
