So, I am not that great at taking criticism and today was especially hard. I created a new shop- htttp://www.kaedankrafts.etsy.com which will feature my diaper cakes. I asked for some critiquing on my shop (ie pictures, lighting, banner, etc.) and the next thing I know I was being bashed for creating diaper cakes and selling them on etsy. Now I disagree with all the people out there who say that making diaper cakes is not an art. I am taking items (yes commercial) and making them look nothing like what they are and they are still able to be used afterward. If we are going to bash that then what is next my photography because I just took a picture. During my years of as an art student (5 and still going) I have been taught that art is in the eye of the beholder. What is art to me maybe rubbish to you.
This is my art so please respect it and I will respect you. As artists and crafters we need to come together not tear each other down.
This is not to be taken as negative I am just trying ask everyone, artist or buyers, remember we are all human and that you can be honest without hurting people. It is hard to give criticism but even harder to receive it. Just be respectful and we can all get along in this already harsh world.
