Not so Handmade
October 19, 2011
I’m not usually one for controversy (yeah right) but there are a few things that drive me completely CRAZY!!! One of those is the current craze for nostalgia and the fact that everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon (just think the amount of Keep Calm and … products).
And queen of this current craze seems to be Kirstie Allsopp and her ‘Handmade’ programs on Channel 4. Don’t get me wrong, I applaud her for promoting traditional crafts and all things handmade ….BUT, when at the same time she has the most ghastly collection of product ‘designed’ for M&S (of which I presume none are handmade), I really want to doubt her sincerity!!! And if you’ve seen her ‘cry’ after winning the single cake competition in last night’s program…I rest my case!!!
