Free Stuff Friday Winner!!

It’s Monday again, and I am having fun reading about all of your dream super powers! Now let’s get to the WINNER,  I’m excited to announce this week’s Free Stuff Friday Winner! Congratulations to… Sue!

Tulip Fabric Markers are great for signs, shirts, backpacks, canvas shoes, even school uniforms. Great for doodles and personalizing. Won’t snag, skip or bleed. The color is permanent, machine washable and non-toxic. Lay flat overnight, to dry, before using or washing your project. The cap color is the color of the ink.  Fine tip. 20 pc.

The winning answer to “If you could have any super power what would it be and why?” is…

“I would want the superpower to slow down time so I could craft for what used to be four hours, but would now be twenty four hours… I would need less sleep that way and lots of time to get the house cleaning done that I put off for crafting/knitting/crocheting/sewing”

 

Every Friday we’ll post a giveaway on Think Crafts and all you have to do is comment on the blog post answering the question of the week.  Check back on Friday for your chance to win!!
