I guess I don't understand why so many seem to have an absolute hate for Wendy and the show. She seems nice enough, and even though she does have a tendency to over-act and tell bad jokes, that's why I wasn't bored the whole time. Another Ion Life show, Fresh with Anna Olson, has a host that simply gives orders and instructions, thinks her way of doing things is the one and only way to do them, and has absolutely no fun in the process, making the show boring and almost hostile feeling, sometimes you want a host who is having a good time while they tell you how to do things!
This is the opposite, you actually get the feeling that she is having fun making these crafts. Yes, some are hit and miss. I'm not going to make a watch with faux-fur on the back, or a glitter-covered "shrine". But I have actually taken ideas from the show and made them my own, which is the point. The episode featuring a lampshade made of picture slides was so cool that I just had to try it myself, only problem was I had no slides, but it also works with Polaroids or the new Fujifilm Instax pictures, they may not be transparent, but it's the same effect.
All in all, the show has a friendly host who can be a bit over the top, but is helpful and has great ideas. If you're into making custom furniture or household decor, you'd probably enjoy this show and get some ideas from it as I have.
