So I THOUGHT I Was Crafty!

I just lost and got kicked off the craft competition, So You Think You're Crafty.  The theme was Teacher Gifts and from the beginning weeks ago when we received the list of the themes for all 10 weeks, this was the week I dreaded.  So it was true dread and I got the boot.
But I'm glad for the 4 projects I was able to enter and it's been fun. A huge thank you for those that  liked my projects and voted for them these past few weeks!
Part of me is quite relieved since we'll be out of town for 2 weeks and then come back to move out of state and crafting on demand during those events was stressing me out.  So it will be nice to sit back and just see every one's good ideas the remaining weeks.
But it was fun while it lasted, and I feel like I did pretty good.  I was just excited to get past the audition!

My Projects:

Week 3: Teacher's Gifts
This tote stunk a big one:


Week 2: Bath Time
I won last week with these Washcloth Puppets:


Week 1: Folksy
The birdcage took 2nd place:

And my audition of the Toddler Newsie Suit didn't do great, but it got me in:


So now that SYTYC is over, I can really hit my garage of projects to complete before the move...more of those to come.

I tore down one of the blue ATV upholstered chairs and it was quite interesting.

  2. I am so glad you were brave enough to enter. I loved your little guy's outfit. The bath time craft was my favorite. Best wishes with you move. I've been grateful to learn more about your amazing talent, and look forward to seeing how you create your new home. Best wishes, and happy Mother's Day.

  4. Are you serious?? First of all, I was pretty shocked that this tote lost. I really liked it. This session has been weird. Someone new has won each week and I have been surprised each week at the crafter that has been kicked off. I was hoping you'd hang on till the end, and not gonna lie, I was hoping I'd be there with ya.
    Great job. I would love to see what your craft is for next week, so post it!

  7. You don't know me but I LOVED your stuff on SYTYC. I was with you from the very first week! (I think your Newsie suit was my favorite thing from the entire competition!) I'm sad to see you out of the competition, but glad you now have time for other things.

  9. You did a great job and you had my vote for more than one of your projects. With all that you have ahead of yourself, you're probably lucky to be done with the competition. I know I'll still be watching you here on your blog.
