Celebrate the Season Finale of Craft Wars with a HUGE Contest!

This Tuesday night TLC is airing the LAST TWO episodes of Craft Wars!
On Aug 21at 8/7c pm the "Blinded by the Light" episode will air. Then at 11/10c pm the FINAL CRAFT WARS EPISODE "Pilgrim Plumbing" will air with a special guest host (Producer Steve Piacenza).

To celebrate the end of the show, the producers (Cathie and Steve) are hosting a giant giveaway! This grand-prize package is worth $800.00 and it is loaded with tons of supplies to get your creative juices flowing! They also have 5 bonus prizes, provided by Craft Wars contestants, worth more than $150.00.

If you aren't familiar with Cathie and Steve, you can find them on Facebook and on Twitter (@cathiefilian). You can even follow their live tweets during both shows using #Craft Wars. OK, back to the BIG giveaway.....

Since the use of glitter has been such a trend on Craft Wars, it seems completely fitting that you could win this huge collection of Cathie Filian glitter.

There are also TONS of Mod Podge products in the prize.

I had never used these glue gun mats and glue spreaders until I went on Craft Wars and now I LOVE them! I may have to use some of my Craft Wars winnings to buy myself one!

Along with the glitter, you also win a bunch of sparkly gems.

Seriously, there is TOO MUCH stuff for me to showcase it all! For full details on all the prizes (along with an explanation of the contest rules and regulations) go to Cathie Filian's website (Cathie and Steve Like to Make Things). OK Back to the prizes....

There are MULTIPLE ways to enter:

1. Leave a comment right here, right now, on this post, on MY BLOG! (Be sure to leave contact info in your comment, as Cathie Filian will collect the comments to select a winner and even though I might know you she does not!)

2. Leave a comment on Cathie Filian's website telling her what you want to craft next. (Make sure you leave contact info!)

3. Posting twitter shot-outs with a link to Cathie's website- @cathiefilian #craftgiveaway will count as 1 entry.

4. Facebook shares with a link to Cathie's website will also count as 1entry.

5. Between now and Tuesday other Craft Wars contestants (#Craft Wars Vets) will be posting on their blogs about the show. Leave a comment on each their CRAFT WARS posts to enter.

I must sound like a broken record by now, but am only speaking the truth when I say I am overly excited to be connecting with so many talented crafters and artists. The Craft Wars show has been rejuvenating and exhilarating to watch (admittedly over and over a few times...he he he)! It is wonderful to see crafters represented on a fun TV show where we can all relate to the struggles and successes as we sit at home and watch. I loved your school house and adore the time you put into the fun details on the roof, flower boxes, and pencil pillars! <3 Congrats on your win! Happy to be a new follower here at your blog!

I picked up a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configurations Print Tray to alter at Michael's a few days ago and I am going to alter it using paper, paints, VerDay, and all sorts of fun bling and stuff. I originally thought to give it a holiday theme since it is going to be a holiday gift but now I am thinking how about 1-18 years for on of my children. Maybe Halloween or Christmas or Back to school pics etc. I don't know...will have to work it out and get it done. Vickie

I am in the midst of painting a mannequin head for my closet for my hats. Next, I'm going to work on my library card box that my friend Judy gave me for a gift.

Andrew Thornton said...

I'd love, love, love to create a really fun and funk Day of the Dead Shrine in the courtyard! I think it could be really cool! The town we're in is pretty conservative and I'd love to give them something to talk about... imagine a structure that's covered in bright colors and glitter and sugar skulls with opportunities for people to interact with it! WOW!

I love this contest and I love Craft Wars. My question would be how to apply as a contestant! My husband and I could so rock it! My next craft projects are some altered jewelry. This prize package would save me a fortune for these projects! I've been reading these blogs and I have a large collection of things from my grandmother to alter for my daughter and granddaughters! I am especially ;looking forward to some projects using watches. I will definitely be checking some of these vet blogs out! my email is margieippc@gmail.com.

I found out about applying for the show on The Craftzine Blog. No one knows yet if there will be more shows (fingers crossed) but at least we all know the name and the idea, none of that was clear when I applied! Keep your eye in crafty websites for news about casting and Check out Angela Daniels (The Guilty Crafter) Blog. She wrote a post about tips for auditioning for the show.

Cheryl Burchett said...

Mine too!
