The Great Craft-Off

I’ve become craft lazy.

Actually, that’s not entirely true.  My craft closet has become SUCH a disaster that I value my life too much to even try to get in there.

But that’s all about to change.

I’m getting it all fixed up so I’m ready to challenge you.

That’s right.

It’s Craft Off.

For those of you who don’t know, I’m pretty competitive.  I’m creative by nature, but add some competition into it and my brain really thrives.

Many people have been telling me about this Craft Wars show on TV.  The thing is, I don’t really watch tv so I haven’t seen it but I love the idea.  So why not have my own little Craft Off?

So here’s the deal.  I’m going to put on a craft challenge.  Once a month I’ll come up with the monthly craft challenge.  I’ll post the challenge and you can comment on if you want to participate or not.

There will be limit on monies to be spent on it.

There will be a due date.  On this date you will send me a photo of your finished product.  I will then compile all the photo’s and people can vote.  Now, this is NOT a popularity contest.  I’m not asking people to go out and pimp for votes on their project.  This is just honest voting on which item people like.  There will be no names put on the photos themselves until after the voting has closed.

If your project beats mine then you get to be on my “Craft Off Wall of Fame”

And I’ll probably challenge to you a rematch.



September’s challenge will be a fall basket display.  Or an outdoor pot.

Limit to items you have on hand or purchased no more than $25.00.

I’m going to go ahead and say that this is YOUR craft.  Not a store bought one.  Not one that came put together.  You.

Deadline to submit photo will be September 1oth to




Voting until 17th.

Winner on 18th.

So who is up for the challenge?

  2. I really want to do this. Not sure if I will be able to swing it with the crazy this month though. But I really want to. Although, a store-bought pot of mums is probably all I will actually accomplish. clearly against the rules.

  3. I think this is a great idea! I don’t have the extra money or supplies to particpate this month, but I am so looking forward to future projects! For October, you should totally do something Halloween-themed!!! :)

  4. This sounds so fun. I won’t be participating this month, but I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. I can’t wait to vote! I love that if someone beats you, you might challenge them to a rematch. That is going to be awesome to watch.

  5. Such a great idea!!!

    I don’t have the time to participate for September but will attempt to do October, even though I’m scared because October is your month. :)

  6. I am totally game for this!!! I will craft & create! After the winner is announced, I will post on my own blog about it no matter if I win or not. This is a win for me because it will give me a blog post haha! i’m such a blog slacker!
