Read the winning Craft Blooper from last year…

“A friend and I had organized a scrapbooking day to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. We called our event the ‘Crop for a Cure’. I was working on a small thank you card for one of our sponsors of the event. I had all the right papers, and stamps and inks, even embellishments. I was happily assembling each piece (between various event interruptions) and then came time to write my message inside the card. I was drawing each word out in a beautiful curly script. Each letter fell into place: ‘Thank You for Supporting the Cr…’ but then; the swirl of my ‘o’ in the word ‘crop’ turned down instead of up and suddenly I was thanking people not for their support of an enjoyable day of scrapbooking, but for a crass bodily function that apparently had mythical healing powers. My friends will never let me forget the day they attended the ‘Crap for a Cure’.” 

Enjoy some of our favorite craft “Oops!” stories from last year’s Craft Bloopers Contest.

Contest deadline is July 31, 2010.  Limited to three entries per person.  Submitting a photo of the craft blooper is optional.  The winner will be chosen by the CreateForLess staff and will receive a $100 CreateForLess e-gift certificate.   The winner will be contacted individually via email and posted on our web site.  After the contest ends, some of the craft bloopers will be showcased on CreateForLess.com, our Think Crafts blog and Facebook page.

    This is not my story, but I borrow it lovingly from my wonderful sister-in-law, Karen. Karen is not the most artistic person in the world, but she is a fabulous mother with two wonderful sons.

    When Jeremy and Andrew were little she wanted so much to make things for them like the other women in our family do. My other sister-in-law is a master seamstress, as are a couple of other women in our large family….I can’t sew either…

    Anyway, Karen painstakingly learned to crochet. It took her forever, but she managed to crochet a blanket for Jeremy. The blanket was in bold colors and it looked pretty good, but they could never seem to get the blanket to fold right. Eventually, they spread the blanket out to discover that Karen I pieced the blanket with FIVE corners. She doesn’t even know how she managed that.

    But I will tell you that Jeremy still owns that blanket to this day and he is 33 years old.
