The Real Deal - Giveaway

We've talked a lot about all the wonderful things that crafting etc can do for you, but I think it's time to be real about the subject. Creating is not always a walk in the park. Sometimes things just do not go as planned! For me, the hardest thing about creating arts & crafts is having a vision in my head that I cannot get to work in real life. The concept is as clear as day, but for whatever reason, it is just not translating. You keep trying and trying, and eventually you'll get it. But getting to that point is tough and emotional!


This week's giveaway is sponsored by Paige Preston of Willow House, a home-based business whose consultants help each guest identify a personal decorating style, share seasonal color trends, and explain how they’re reflected in the Willow House products. One way that Paige does this is through her blog. Starting October 1st customers can order anytime online from the current catalog or outlet on Paige's website without having to attend a party. However, party hostesses can earn items for FREE, Half-price, and 70% off when they host a Design Party in their homes!



One lucky DFW Craft Shows reader will WIN this Decorative Card and Photo display, a value of $38! This piece can hang anything from pictures and greeting cards to recipes, hair bows, and ribbon! It is made of iron and is both decorative and organizational piece. Both diamonds are included and can be separated. Includes an over-the-door hanger and a connector.

How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us what the hardest part about your craft is. It doesn't have to be a deep profound realization, sometimes the hardest part of a project is just not having the right tool. Go ahead, get it off your chest! Don't forget to leave an email address if your blogger profile is private, otherwise, I will have no way of contacting you!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Tuesday, October 12th. Winners will be announced the morning of Wednesday, October 20th, 2010.

Are you interested in sponsoring one of our giveaways and having your business listed on our site as shown above? Email me at dfwcraftshows@gmail.com for more information!

  1. The hardest part of my craft is that each plate is custom painted for the customer, which takes time to design.

  2. I love this card holder...it will be perfect for holiday cards...I hope I win! I think the hardest part for me is finding time & space to create! I recently lost my crafting space due to a basement flood & I have really missed having all my supplies organized & at the ready.

  4. I think the hardest part of my craft is having enough money to buy all the yarn I fall in love with every time I got to the yarn store... hehehe! I really enjoy what I do. Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous piece of art.

  5. The hardest part for me right now is having the space to organize my space and supplies so that they are easy to find and get too. I just moved to a slightly smaller space and I can really tell! Plus it makes me forget things I have because they are not easily seen and then I forget about a project I wanted to do or I buy more than one of something because I forgot I had it!

  8. I have a hard time with patience! I want to be finished right away - so sticking with it until I'm done is the hardest for me - I'm so anxious to see the finished product!

  9. The hardest part for me is going in Hobby Lobby and getting exactly what I went there for. I always come home with seems like hundreds of fabrics, new appliques I want to try, some stuff I want to put together to make a quick sell item. I need to get more bins bcause my fabric bins are overflowing!!
