...to suggest that someone's art skills were over-praised as a child?

YANBU grin

I'm far from artistic and I am pretty sure I could surpass that!!

RockUnit Tue 22-Mar-16 21:34:01

Not for me, but they've got good feedback so there must be enough people who like them...

Palomb Tue 22-Mar-16 21:36:03

I kinda like it in a unique rusty kind of way.

SquinkiesRule Tue 22-Mar-16 22:25:03

A bit rubbish.
My friend used to make our coffee club a mug each for Christmas each year, hers were much nicer and she doesn't claim to have any artistic skills at all.

Admit it, two of you are watching this.

You don't need to be good at art to sell stuff like that. People still buy it. I personally wouldn't though.

CakeNinja Tue 22-Mar-16 22:28:39

grin at 'can be personalised any way you want'!!

QueenArseClangers Tue 22-Mar-16 23:48:14

Have you seen her other items shockgrin

Unless the 'crafter' (and I use the term very loosely) is 9 years old then they're all fucking terrible!

gaggiagirl Tue 22-Mar-16 23:51:57

Ooooh, I can feel another craft thread coming on!!!! Yesssssss.
Photos of crafts please (glitter, scrabble tiles, buttons in frames)
I love these threads.

gaggiagirl Tue 22-Mar-16 23:54:47

This one has buttons and scrabble tiles....in a frame!!!!

SovietKitsch Wed 23-Mar-16 00:22:58

Ha! The tree?! I feel I've missed my calling in life, I can draw at least as well as that - even on mugs! And I've got a sharpie or two lying about...grin

Whilst I don't like that, It's the sort of thing I might make for myself and feel a bit pleased (I am not very artistic). I made these two little "scenes" using little Hornby railway people/animals in Ikea frames - similar to something I'd seen in a shop for £££.

But to sell it myself ...

Narp Wed 23-Mar-16 06:19:01

BTW I am talking about the scrabble tiles

The Game of Thrones Mug ... OMG grin

Have you looked at her other items for sale? My GOD

NotGonnaAnswerThePhone Wed 23-Mar-16 13:03:57

Not to mention the quote is not even a Walking Dead quote!!!

Pipbin Wed 23-Mar-16 13:06:33

I think it is a quote from the comic rather than the to series.
Very poor though.

QueenArseClangers Wed 23-Mar-16 13:15:15

Why does it have a drawing of a butt plug on it?

WellErrr Wed 23-Mar-16 13:22:32

I saw that and thought 'dildo.'

Poor lady. I hope she doesn't see this blush

TheCrumpettyTree Wed 23-Mar-16 13:36:01

For £8 this could be yours!

Summerisle1 Wed 23-Mar-16 13:38:50

Oh dear. It's not as if the mugs were nice before the dreadful scrawling was added.

Narp Wed 23-Mar-16 15:58:50

580 people have bought that crap

AlpacaPicnic Wed 23-Mar-16 16:51:43

Wouldn't you at least make sure the writing was straight?

maz210 Wed 23-Mar-16 16:58:39

Is this thread really necessary? It seems a bit mean to pick on someone's handmade goods because you think you could have done better yourself.

And, no, I'm not the seller in question!
