christy's craft challenge giveaway

Giveaway #13



This is another totally unique giveaway that I know is going to be a hit! Have you heard about the Christy Nelson Craft Challenge? This fun blogger hosts a monthly craft challenge complete with fabulous prizes. Participants sign up to receive a packet of craft supplies (no need to roam the aisles of the craft store--it comes right to your door). When you receive the supplies, you make something awesome, send her pictures, and compete for the chance to win prizes! It is as simple as that. (Read this FAQ for more details.)


Is your interest piqued? Check out her blog for some of the past challenges. What we love about this is that Christy gives you a reason to craft every month. The supplies are sent right to your house so all you have to provide is the inspiration. She lets all of us out in blogland cast our votes for our favorite creation, and the winner receives the next month's challenge for free plus another prize (a different sponsor each month provides a prize for the winner). Then she chooses a winner from all the participants that choose to blog about their experience and gives them a prize, too!

If this sounds like the challenge you need to get you in your crafting groove, you can purchase a subscription in Christy's Etsy shop. The price of the challenge includes supplies and shipping. A one-month subscription is only $5! Or get a whole year's subscription for only $55 (that means you get one free month!).

Christy also features great tutorials on her blog like the Hanging Bouquet and the Hodgepodge Hardware Pendant. Her duct-tape dress form is brilliant and hysterical! She also sometimes sells her finished items and kits for tutorials in her shop.


So are you ready for a great prize that could result in another prize? Enter Christy's giveaway and you could win a free month of Christy's Craft Challenge for free! Just check out this post and vote for your favorite crafty creation, then leave us a comment telling us which one you picked. OR, if you're reading this after the voting has closed, tell us which of her fabulous tutorials you liked best. Do it by Wednesday, June 3 at 11:59pm PDT!
