Your CWTS Season 1 Champion is...

I know you are all dying to know who won, but before I reveal our champion and runners-up I want to give a HUGE thank you to the sponsors for contributing to such an amazing prize package! When the competition first began, I did not have any prizes, but thanks to the stars and all of these wonderful companies, we were able to put together a pretty sweet package for our final three.

Thank you so much for following along with this competition. I hope you all have enjoyed it as much as I have. If you haven't linked up to the other rounds, you have until midnight MST tonight. I'll be featuring those projects over the next few days. Be sure to click on the "Crafting with the Stars" tab in my menu bar to see past rounds and read more about our contestants and stars and their projects.

Season 2 is just around the corner. I'm taking a little break from the contest for the holiday season, but Season 2 will kick off January 1st with open auditions. Projects must be done December 1st, 2010 or later, so start thinking now about what you want to do to enter. I've learned a lot from this first go-around, and I believe Season 2 is going to be even better and stronger!

And don't worry. I'll still be blogging, so please continue to follow along with me. I've got lots of crafts and sewing projects, tutorials, and TONS of giveaways lined up over the next few weeks, including the BIGGEST giveaway I've ever done (it's good I promise)!

Congrats again to EVERY.SINGLE.ONE of the ladies in this contest! You are all so talented and should be very proud of what you have done! It was so fun getting to know all of you better. Thank you! Thank you!
