Gather Your Supplies - Giveaway

There are days when going to an Arts & Crafts store to get supplies is like walking through a candy store. But, the more I go, the more it starts to feel like an obstacle standing between me and my finished projects! I say, "I need to go buy supplies," and my husband is not the only one sinking down into the chair and groaning. I try to counteract this effect by going to different stores whenever I can. Variety is the spice of life, right?


This week's giveaway is sponsored by Jessica H. of Avery's Flower Garden. Jessica, who just had a beautiful baby girl recently, started making these beautiful flower clips and is ready to share them with you! Jessica, whom you might have seen at some the local arts & craft shows, also sells delicious Scentsy Candles--which makes her a very busy bee!





One lucky DFW Craft Shows reader will WIN a $20 gift certificate to Avery's Flower Garden! Mix and match styles and colors to put together the perfect flower clip assortment for yourself!

How to enter: Simply leave a comment (here or on Facebook) and tell us what your favorite shopping destination is (be it local or online) for all your Arts & Crafts needs! 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 26th. Winners will be announced the morning of Wednesday, October 27th, 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!

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!
