Thoughts on Failure and Honesty

It's confession time - 

Sometimes I'm discouraged when I read other people's blogs - especially creative blogs where every resulting project is perfect and looks like Martha Stewart helped in the final styling.

I'm dying to know what happens behind the scenes. Do they ever mess up? Is their house a disaster? 

Mine is. But I've shown you those pictures before. For posterity though:

Someone got into the hand me down bag...

We're all human. 
We all make mistakes.

Some of these mistakes are rather spectacular and should be shared with the masses.

That's why I submitted my recent "oops" over at CraftFail where mistakes are celebrated. Revered even. 

Especially one as inspired as this:

Do you see what I see?

This was supposed to be a cool adaptation of my bathtub puffy paint. Yeah, not so much.

Head on over to CraftFail.com and find out more about my "Soapy Error of Phallic Proportions." 
And don't worry, I'm giggling too.

Any craft fail stories to share?

    Fell out of my chair laughing!! Yes, I fail. Yes my house ends up as a disaster most days...and YES...our old cat barfs every day and it's always a "surprise" to find out where.

    No one is perfect, no one's life is perfect. The world would be very boring if it was a perfect place.

    Our life is certainly not perfect. I would hate to show everyone pictures of my house.

    Ha! I love that that site exists, thanks for introducing it to me.

    I have a craft fail that I'll be posting about this week as well. Not hilarious like yours though... just stupidity on my part - actually almost exactly the same kind of thing... just not the hilarious outcome :)
