Friday Finds! Regretsy & Craftastrophe! (Prepare to be terrified)

Batman Fine Art Print on Craftastrophe

What better Friday Finds to showcase than the daringly dual disgusting websites of Craftastrophe and Regretsy? Those with weak stomachs set off by taxidermy or cross-stich penises should avoid.

Craftastrophe is a blog that combs the internet for terrifying craft projects. The blog can be a bit confusing, the best way to browse is to scroll halfway down the Craftastrophe homepage and click on one of the "Other Crafty Features" categories on the right.

You have no idea how hard I wanted to put that in ALL CAPS.

Regretsy is very much arranged like (etsy requested regretsy change their website so people could differentiate), so it's unfortunately easy to navigate and find terrible things.

Both sites give commentary about the various "finds" they've made. It may seem mean-spirited, but they've also brought sales to the crafters and artists they've found.

So, if you're ready to delve into something terrible, here are the links:
Craftastrophe: Because handmade isn't always pretty.
Regretsy: Handmade? It looks like you made it with your feet.

Thanks to Rebecca for bringing both of these sites to my attention!
