Lately I’ve been working on a lot of crafty projects with my toddler. Unfortunately, I’m plagued by ICTDT Syndrome (“I can totally do that!”), which means my result is never quite what I intended . . . and by “quite” I mean that I blame the two-year-old for the craftastrophe, and people actually believe it. Of course there are a lot of As Seen on TV arts and craft products and tools for Do-It-Yourselfers, and these are designed to make crafting, building, and remodeling easy for even novices. Unfortunately, for some of us, there’s just no help.
For example, The Bedazzler made creating jeweled fashions simple for anyone. Well, almost anyone:
I’m sure Jaycee’s Mommmy will wear this Bedazzled garment with pride at the next PTA meeting. And Jaycee will enjoy many years of therapy.
Crafters are not alone in their failures, however. DIY projects of all kinds can go dramatically wrong in a second, even with the best of tools–although I’m not sure this qualifies as the best of tools:
Perhaps this home improvement genius should consider the Half Time Drill Driver, no? Clearly, he’s in the market for a new drill. At least, I hope so, or this is even more Fail than I thought.
Crafts, Do-It-Yourself . . . and let’s not forget Cake Fail. There is a whole website dedicated to the ridiculous cake fails of professional bakers, but homemade cakes can often really take cake horror to a whole new level:
Of course you want your cake to be the focal point of the party. Of course you want your cake decorating skills to be talked about for years to come. But not like this.
No, if you want a cake that is eye-catching, not eye-gouging, try a Big Top Cupcake instead, and keep your kids from joining Jaycee and Emma in their “Ways My Mom Ruined My Life” recovery group.
Or if you’re like me, and you STILL think you can do it, head over to SeenOnTV Express and check out the selection of As Seen on TV arts and crafts products, tools, and kitchen products. You can totally do that!
