let me start off by admitting i am WAY too gullible.  I thought the "best of the worst" featured projects were awesome. kinda change it up a bit.  but i seriously thought the "hot new projects" were real.  some of those projects were AWFUL.  especially the interchangable shopping bags, and the study in pink? ugh!
i definitely need to be more aware of the fact that its april 1st next year... GREAT JOB CRAFTSTERS!

Mostly what threw me off was the shear volume of "gushing" going on about all the new projects!

But you do have to admit that lapoli's instant disguise kit would be cool on any day!

It is a bit scarey that we were able to "gush" over some pretty hideous stuff! lol

I will be the first to admit, though, that sometimes I see projects like this on other days and I just have to wonder if the person is spoofing us or ... well, I would not want to hurt anyone's feelings, so I usually say nothing...

I think a lot of members chose to say nothing on April 1st...so, weren't they sweeties?!

Now to explain to all my friends and clients that "A Study in Pink" will NOT be going into my portfolio!! ha ha

I'm still discovering projects.  I think this is the most relaxing holiday I've had in a long long time.  I am actually smiling much more than I have during the last five months (when I'm not laughing).  Thank you.

So I am not the only one that feels that way   Roll Eyes  I often point out projects to my hubby where someone took a perfectly acceptable object and turned it into  a horrible ugly disaster....I usually say nothing too  Lips sealed

Yay! I'm glad everyone had a good April Fools!

Thanks to sweets4ever and jungrrl for all your extra behind the scenes work, too!

I'd like to second this and add just how much fun it was to share all the fun with my family this weekend.  We even tried to make some tampon bunnies ourselves...

   The first thing I noticed was the changing avatars. So you mean ketchup doesn't work? I really was about to try it. Only, I was wondering what shade of red it would make. I decided not to risk my hair turning orange... since that's about the color of a ketchup stain!

I only saw some of the April fools, but I thought they were hilarious, and actually called my OH downstairs to have a look! I loved the PB thread and OH asked crunchy or smooth and I told him that had actually been posted in the thread!  Cheesy
