It's Time....Season 2 of Crafting with the Stars

Here we go again: Calling all crafters!!!
Season 1 was so much fun, so we are going to keep this ball rolling and get Season 2 started.

It's time for "Crafting with the Stars"! Do you think you are pretty crafty or just really enjoy making things?
Do you enjoy pushing your creative limits?
Would you like the chance to work with a blogland "star"?
Then this is the contest for you. Here's how it works:

Auditions are now open. Submit 1 project that shows everyone your best stuff into the linky party at the end of this post. Projects must have been made December 1, 2010 or later, and must be your own work.

**At this point in the competition, it does not have to be your original idea. I understand that even making something with a pattern/tutorial can be difficult and demonstrate your talents. However, keep in mind that you want to stand out from all the other entries, so I would recommend entering something unique and original.**

You have until Saturday, January 15th to enter. From the entries, 12 of you will be chosen as our contestants and paired up to work one-on-one with a Big-time, craft blog "star", to duke it out in a four-week competition to see who's the craftiest. Most of the "working together" will be via email (or in person if you happen to live by each other.) The "star" will mostly give suggestions, ideas, encourage, and help you come up with the best project possible. You will do the main part of creating. Each round will have a theme and eliminations, so be prepared to put your best foot forward if you want to survive.

You ready to see who they are? We have 9 returning stars and I'm really excited about our 3 new additions. In alphabetical order, I'm thrilled to give you our 12 Crafty Stars:

1. Amy (Mod Podge Rocks)
2. Beckie (Infarrantly Creative)
3. Char (Crap I've Made)
4. Cheri H. (I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar)
5. Cheri P. (It's So Very Cheri)
6. Heather (Dollar Store Crafts)
7. Jen (Tatertots & Jello)
8. Kierste (Brown Paper Packages)
9. Lorie (Be Different...Act Normal)
10. Michelle (Someday Crafts)
11. Sachiko (Tea Rose Home)
12. Shelley (How Does She?)

Awesome, right? Each of these women is incredibly amazing!!! Wouldn't you love a chance to work with the best and use their expertise? Then don't waste any time and get your projects ready and linked up. Remember, all entries must be in by Saturday, January 15th 8pm MST. The 12 finalists will be announced Wednesday, January 19th.

If you enter the contest, please proudly display this button on your blog to send everyone over to check out your project. Who knows? The number of times your project is viewed might help your chances.

If you're not quite ready to join in as a competitor, but still want to join in the fun, grab this button for your blog to spread the word!

Good luck everyone! I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
