How the CraftSnark Measures Success
Alternately titled: CraftSnark Weighs in on MarthaStewart or Kicking Puppies is Always a Bad Idea
I'm no expert... but I am a lot of things. Including a mom. And as a mom, I screw up all the time. I try really, really hard. But sometimes, with everything that is going on, I drop the ball. I say something I didn't mean, or in a way I didn't mean. And sometimes, I'm just plain mean. Ask my kids - they'll tell you. I'm not perfect. But man, I love my kids. No matter what.
Martha Stewart was a craft blogger before craft blogging existed. Her early work in crafting and home decor helped make this industry a "thing" (a "good thing" even!). She helped pave the way for the rest of us. So, she's kinda a mom to craft bloggers. And she screwed up. But we can love her anyway, right?
I know... you were thinking that when the CraftSnark weighed in on this whole Craftastrophy, that I would rip Ms. Stewart a new one. But I believe in Karma. And this is one puppy I'm not going to kick.
