What's the best way to watch a new tv show?  With girl friends, of course.  The moment Megan saw the commercial for TLC's new show, Craft Wars, she thought of super crafty me.  I loved it.

She invited a few of us gals over to her place to watch the premier, check out the competition, and plot to get my on the show if it's renewed for season two.  

A couple of the girls had previous plans so it
ended up being Megan, Sarah and  me.

Craft Wars is like all of the other "Wars" franchises.  Three crafters are given a crafting challenge with a short time to complete the task.  After that round someone is eliminated.  Next, the remaining two crafters are given a major task and the winner receives $10,000.

The best way to check out a new show is with snacks and cocktails.  Megan made us pineapple upside down cake cocktails made with wedding cake vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of cherry soda.  Delicious!  She also made some phyllo dough treats with peanut butter cups baked inside.  They were so good.  Another refreshing treat she made were these yummy grapes from Very Culinary.

Instead of bringing a snack, I decided to put together a quick craft to do while we enjoyed some sips & nibbles before the show started.  I opted to go with Hope Studio's Button Bracelets.

They were a big hit.  My favorite moment was when Sarah said, "I'm actually enjoying myself."  We died with laughter.  She clarified that she meant she was enjoying making something she'd actually wear again.  It wasn't a silly craft we'd toss out when we got home.  We all loved the bracelets.  Check them out.

We loved the show and are making plans to watch the show again.  By the way, I totally called it on that one girl using hot glue on her bag.  Total amateur move.  Any of you good crafters out there called that one too.  

What did you think of the show?



  1. I definitely thought of you too!! But I didn't know it already premiered damn

    1. You always know the way to my heart. It just aired this past Tuesday and like all TLC shows they are replaying it several times. Let me know what you think.
