Craft Room Wars

You've heard of Craft Wars, haven't you?  It's a new program where they pit 3 crafters against one another to be the most creative of the challenge set forth by the judges.  It's fun to watch.  Well, I think I've discovered a new show for you to watch...

We teachers were swapping craft room nightmares while we were at the store opening of Kept Creations.  It was getting to a one-upmanship situation with how messy we had all left our craft rooms because we were so busy prepping for the store opening and classes and M&T's.  

We tried describing our rooms to one another and, well let's just say a picture is worth a thousand words (perhaps a million in this case).  Maria K. (she's threatened to stop speaking to me if I post this) and I decided to take pics of our craft rooms POST- disaster to compare.  We honestly can't make up our minds which of us has the worst disaster in crafting history.  Can you help us decide?

So, I am issuing a challenge.  I'd like to hear from all of you by posting your vote for Worst Craft Room.  I will randomly pick a name from all who respond and that winner will receive an "unloved" item from the winner of the Worst Craft Room Wars.  What?  you were expecting something new?  You do realize that we can't FIND anything that may be NEW in either of these craft rooms!

Now if you've been to either of our craft rooms and know which is which, just be fair and vote for Craft Room Disaster #1 or #2 (that's how I'll post them to be fair).

You be the judge!!

Craft Room Disaster #1






Craft Room Disaster #2



And just so you know,  I am NOT proud of whichever one of these rooms it is!!  I'll get in touch via email to the winner and get your address so that you can claim your "unloved" item.  Invite your friends and family to join in the fun as well -- we're not proud (rather obvious, isn't it?)

Ciao Bella!

I vote for Disaster 1, though it was a very difficult decision. By the way, as a fellow Kept instructor who also trashed her craft room in prep for the opening, I simply cannot BELIEVE you did not invite me to join this contest as entry 3. C'mon girls, I had the Red Cross in there giving out coffee and donuts!

My vote is for #4 as it has unknown items that aren't even craft ??? items on the desk LOL

You should both be ashamed of yourselves! I'd love to get in there and straighten out BOTH rooms! Maybe that's cause I can't craft my way out of a paper bag but LOVE organization.

I vote for Disaster room#2' although #1 isn't too shabby either.
I'll bet you both know exactly where everything is! True CRAFTERS.

ChrisD said...

I know who owns each of these two rooms. For the record, I gave my vote to number 1 because I have seen photographic evidence that proves it has since been cleaned but I suspect that room 2 might still look that way!

Both rooms look deliciously disastrous to me...I'd be happy to have either mess to play in! My vote goes for #1. I'd love to see the "after" photos...?

Stacy said...

Ok I pick room 2 but I bet I would win if I was in this contest cuz my room looks like that and it is 4 times smaller than both rooms!!!!
Well good luck girls and happy cleaning!!!!!

I received an email from Nancy M who said she couldn't leave a message on this post. So I will put her vote in for her -- she has voted for Craft Room Disaster #2.

Are these rooms from LA and Ms aftermath of hurricane Irene and a FEMA project? I think snakes and gators could be in these rooms and maybe #2 is the biggest disaster.

Donna Ellis said...

OMG! And you didn't invite ME? LOL It was hard to decide, but I'm voting for #2 as the worst. Still, they are so close, it's a difficult call. Too funny. I like the contest! Thanks for making me feel better about my room.

Donna Ellis said...

BTW, where did number 1 got those awesome drawers - the white ones which are not deep? I want some of those!

Mary T said...

Oh what a hard choice. The sad thing is I beat both of you! My vote goes to #1 because there is not a spot on her work area to work on and scraps om the floor. I know rm # 2 and wondering how the owner of this room is able to work as she is extremely orderly!

Linda said...

My vote is for #1. Both of the desks tops are covered and there are paper scraps on the floor etc....

Traci said...

Hard to vote....both of these look like mine! :D How about....ummm.....#2?? Love them both!

Monica Swain said...

I have to vote for room #2. If I had a craft room they would look like these :)
The mark of happy crafters. Organized chaos!

Have I won yet? (BTW #2 should be especially ashamed of her mess.)

Shona Erlenborn said...

I think no. 2 wins by a landslide! What was she creating anyway?
