Have you been watching Craft Wars on TLC? In each episode of CRAFT WARS, hosted and executive produced by Tori Spelling, three talented crafters will be supplied with every crafting tool they could dream of, furnished by Michaels, the arts and crafts store, as well as some unexpected items. First, they’ll face off in the Pop Craft challenge, where they must create one of the craft world’s most popular items in just one hour. Judges Erica Domesek (author of the DIY book, PS I Made This), Stephen Brown (author and founder of the multi-million dollar gift wear company Glitterville Studios) and Jo Pearson (author and creative expert for Michaels) will evaluate their crafts and eliminate one contestant. Then, the final two crafters must wow the judges in the crafting challenge of a lifetime, the Master Craft challenge. They’ll have to use all of their creative crafting prowess, and push themselves to the limit, because when time is up, only one will win and walk away with the $10,000 prize.
So fire up your glue guns crafters. This is Craft Wars: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/tv/craft-wars/videos/on-the-craft-battleground.htm
