1. If you are crafting animals out of back issues of Guns and Ammo, please take the time to learn enough about the animal to name the parts of its body correctly. (See “Do Cats Have Lips?“)
2. Please, please don’t make me have to explain to you that “flesh” is not just one color.
3. Get a manicure before you take step-by-step photos of how you craft cat hair into model flower gardens. You don’t need French Tips, but you’d be embarrassed if you knew how long I spent staring at your hangnails in the process of figuring out if the text and the pictures match.
4. Please try with your intros. I understand that you are craftspeople and not writers. But surely you can come up with something more interesting than “This project shows the many ways you can use jump rings.”
5. Use spell check.
What’s your plea today?
