In all of the excitement surrounding the return of DANCING with the stars, I forgot to check my email obsessively for CRAFTING with the stars news, and thus found out a few hours later than most that I MADE IT!
I will be on Crafting with the Stars this "season", repurposing, upcycling, painting, priming, creating, drawing, pinning, stapling and photographing 4 new, DIY designs. Every week, readers will vote over HERE for their favorite design and the winners will move on in the competition. The catch is - the contest is completely anonymous...meaning the best project truly wins!
Over the course of this contest, I will have a crafting mentor. She will be giving me tips, tricks and advice as I craft. You might wonder how you go about deciding which mentor to choose and I tell you, I kind of wormed around on the various sites, checking out projects, looking to see who I thought I would connect with the best, who has a sense of humor...etc, etc. All of the mentors are brilliant, so I seriously kept going back and forth over and over, but I kept coming back to one. Over and over and over again. There was just something about Mandi that I totally loved...I think perhaps that she had me at Hello with her header...I mean seriously...see?
So up first up is a knock off design. As soon as I saw the category I instantly knew what I was going to do and I want to share so very much with you, but I can't...that whole anonymous thing you know...but keep coming back and get ready to VOTE and meet a whole bunch of amazing talented crafty girls in early October!
