Regretsy is the funniest book guaranteed to make you laugh. April Winchell does amazing charity work with her Regretsy auctions. She just helped my Tails of Joy save scores of animals with a Regretsy purse auction. So, laughs and charity, what better reason to support Regretsy?

I don't sell on Etsy any longer, but I'm friends with quite a few sellers there, and I still purchase there.

Regretsy is a really great site. April (Helen's) sense of humor is just amazing. I cannot look at a Regretsy post without laughing my butt off.

So happy she is using the proceeds for charity! WTG, and thank you for an aweseome web site!

I love this website, and Helen Killer is so charitable. Snarky and awesomesauce is what makes Regretsy so so utterly wicked awesome. Wicked wicked awesome.

When life becomes too hard to bear, visit Regretsy. You'll forget why you were so miserable and wonder why you're now laughing like a lunatic and buying weird stuff!

I am so excited to say that I am local (Saratoga) and one of my creations (Vasectomy Vern) is featured in the Regretsy Book!!!! Some crafters take "issue" with Regretsy but I think it is about the funniest d*mn website I have ever read and April does a lot of really good work with the proceeds from the site. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of the book. I hope Vern doesn't go "all hollywood" on me.

Check out Vasectomy Vern and all his other adult themed BooBoo MOnster friends in my Etsy shop - Craftyisthenewblack

To be an artist

No art is created in order to hide it
The purpose of art is to create a different feeling
To wake up something in you
To open people’s eyes
To reveal the world fearless and naked
An artist sacrifices the most important things he possesses
The images from his dreams, mind and his life
He puts everything out there, in the open
In the hands of those who might destroy them
To take that chance, to risk your criticism
Is to be an artist Vale Vortex
