Clean your wounds

People make the darnedest things. For example, to decorate your lounge room wall:

"Wow your scientist friends and colleagues with the coolness of this piece of knitted art. The frog is hand knit from a silk/wool blend, and his little innards are needle-felted by hand out of 100% wool. He comes pinned into his wooden 8 x 10 inch frame, but he is not glued down, so you can take him out and cuddle him if you wish. The backing for this frog is a beautiful dark brown cork.
Designed and hand knitted by me ~ The Crafty Hedgehog"

Right now, I'm making an impressed face. Sounds like an excellent 30th present... or is it in fact, quite distasteful? Does anyone else remember the funky formaldehyde smell of year 7 science 'dissection' day?

After all that knitting (or dissecting?) you might want to wash your hands, why not use these cute little hand-made soaps?

"Wash your hands with hands!
These are are completely hand made, so each set is slightly different with different hand-shapes & skin-ish colors. The soaps range from 1/2” to 3” tall.
You will get at least 10 hands (at least/about 100 grams of soap). The soap is goat’s milk + vegetable glycerin & has a very light scent. Packaged in a pretty bag… All ready for gifting to a friend with dirty paws! " By foliage.

Multi-racial too! *fake enthusiastic hand gesture* Are these, despite being gruesomely cute, worth banning from existence? If you think about it, these are small chubby children hand shapes you're (potentially) washing yourself with... should that be illegal? If you think about this - it's quite a contentious issue... let's debate!

Some people say there is nothing new under the sun, but gee - these come pretty close to being something you've never even considered as something someone would make.

I heart etsy.
