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?
