crafts

Freaky ideas on these craft shows. The last one suggested using African tribal designs - copying them with your left hand for a more "natural" look. Yesterday there was a segment on cutting out Oriental prints from fabrics and ironing them to curtains, then attaching frogs for curtain rungs. And now I see this segment on taking a terracotta pot, slathering it with joint compound and calling it "antique". There is something weird going on here.
