The ULTIMATE Craft Fail

The ULTIMATE Craft Fail

Once upon a time I thought I could make a cute little Gnome couple out of Styrofoam Cones.   Sadly enough that fairy tale did not have a story book ending.  I have nicknamed them Mr. Bill and the Floozie.  There is not much more to say about this very sad attempt other than, yes, I think it is most certainly The ULTIMATE Craft Fail.  If you have a really horrible project you would like to share and are not overly embarrassed to admit it is yours leave a comment with a link.  I would love to have a good laugh.

My website Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at

  5. Is that okay? I thought I ran it by you, but if I didn’t… uh that was rude of me. Just let me know if it’s not cool!

  6. Not so bad- youll remember this one—

  7. I don’t know what your envisioned in your head (because let’s face it…we all have ideas that “work” in our minds and fail in execution), but these gnomes are adorable! Glad you shared them anyway! I’ll have to remember that next time I’m disappointed with a project!
