We all would like to believe that every attempted craft turns out beautifully, just like the picture in the magazine, but unfortunately (and sometimes hilariously) that is not the case. There is a special hall of shame I discovered for such projects when I was tracking down the source of this picture of a colossal cupcake catastrophe-

Recently I tried some Paint Chip Art for our bedroom. And when you see the pictures, you won't be surprised that it didn't make this blog. (Although, from now on I think I'll post any flops, right along with the successes, to keep things honest, and hopefully entertaining for you :) It looked easy enough, what could go wrong?
Usually it's an honor to have one's work featured on another website. Unless of course that work was a certifiable "flop" and the website it was featured on is called Craft Fail. I submitted this project a few weeks ago and was tickled to find it on their home page today! Haha
Here's the full sad story.
. Glue down pieces of paper. Kindergartners do this on a regular basis.
I had put a design on top that I decided I didn’t like (you can see where the glue smudges are) and I thought I could easily rip off. Not. Several pieces came off with it. And at that point I knew it was all over.To see it on the website, follow this link http://craftfail.com/2012/02/a-not-so-sticky-situation/
Well, yay for my first "featured" work, haha, I think :) Tell me I'm not alone in this, any flops you would like to admit to as well? hmm?
