So You Think You're Crafty

I'm biting my fingernails even more than usual, as I think I've gotten in over my head on something--a craft competition, called So You Think You're Crafty. Starting on Monday, I will be competing with 9 other brilliantly crafty ladies (this is the "in over my head" part, since these women are so wonderfully talented and I am just struggling here to get by!).
The way it works is the for the next few months (!), there will be a weekly challenge based around a theme, where each of us sends a project and it's posted anonymously on the So You Think You're Crafty blog. Then all of you lovely people vote on your favorite and the winner has her tutorial posted on the blog. I'm just hoping I get some nice responses, because I'm seriously shaking in my knitted booties. Yeah, I'm a certified art teacher, but I think that puts more pressure on myself to do well! Plus I'm a perfectionist and am my worst critic, so anything I submit will be flawed to me.

Here are the other 9 crafters:
Alish & Whitney @ Sisters Stuff
Ashley @ Little Blue Boo
Dana @ MADE
Jessica @ Happy Together
Jill @ Homemade by Jill
Lindsey @ Inspiring Creations
Vanessa @ V & CO.
Marilyn @ Krafty Mum
Mique @ 30 Days

I'm really excited though to be a part of this, especially that it will start a hot glue gun under my butt to get back into a weekly crafting routine. So head on over to So You Think You're Crafty and follow them via Google Friend connect, Twitter, and Facebook, and please vote for the best!

  2. I think we're all nervous :)....yet so excited to see what everyone comes up with! I actually wish there didn't have to be a person to get kicked off each week, so that we could all enjoy seeing tons and tons of crafts. It's so cool to see how we all interpret it differently!
    Fun to "meet" you :). Thanks for stopping by MADE.

  4. Ooo this is going to be good!
    You guys need cool names like the So You Think YOu Can Dance contestants.
    Not that "Kathleen" isn't cool, but it isn't edgy. ;)

  5. What a cool idea! But geezzz.... yeah, talk about pressure. I don't think you're in over your head though, you're an art teacher by golly!

    It may be just the kick you need though to get you back into the routine you want to be in.


    This will be fun to watch each week!
    Will you remind us?
