Those of you visiting my blog at its homepage (instead of reading via an RSS feed) may have noticed this new badge:
I stumbled upon Craftori via a blog I just started following (Zzzonkowl). Apparently I missed it while it was still called Etsy Lush? In any case, it is everything I was expecting from CraftGawker: a place to share final, polished products and to browse other people's works—not a collection of mediocre DIY tutorials.
There's also a corresponding Etsy team, which is very explicit about only being for handcrafted or vintage (no resellers or shops with more than two owners are allowed). There is a heavy focus on promotion but there is a chat thread and a sense of camaraderie as well.
