Tiny Niblets

How Twitter Works by Patrick Neilson Hayden

The Boxing Day Disaster. I try to use gift bags to try to cut down on the waste, but it can still get pretty bad. My brother packaged some gifts in old appliance boxes, which was good.

dear the entire internet

a gift made with found object

Seems like etsy is going through some restructuring.

I need to put my pedal to the metal because January is coming. For some reason, people enjoy buying jewelry after Christmas.

Man, I Wish We Had a Craft Business Nightmares...

I love Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. People with a lack of business sense try to open restaurants[i.e. they have dog poop in the kitchen, frozen food on the menu,etc] and Ramsay comes in and says WTF? IT SHOULDN'T TAKE 30 MINUTES TO PUT SOME ICEBERG LETTUCE INTO A BOWL! Since getting into the crafts business is so much easier than the restaurant business[I bet you could get in with an initial $100 investment] I bet even more egregious messups are being covered up by folks saying that their detractors are just jealous...
