It’s here! Our Craft Wars episode is finally here!
Jen (the amazing talent behind Passion-For-Parties.com) and I are so excited for all of you to finally see us compete in the crafty battle!
This post is packed with so many details and so much fun, you might want to take notes and break out your calendars!
Hold on to your seats! This is going to be an exciting week!!
1. Our episode is this Tuesday!
Our episode is this Tuesday and it is the season finale! But, and this is important, there are two new episodes this week! The first airs at 8pm EST, and the second at 11p EST. We are the second episode! Look for “Pilgrim Plumbing” in your listings! Any guesses as to what we’ll be making???
PS…You’ll know you have the right episode because we have a special host! Steve Piacenza!
2. Let’s recap the show together!
Jen and I know that our episode airs pretty late Tuesday night (it’s past my bedtime!) so we’re going to give you some time to watch it through your DVR, catch a replay, or even download it from iTunes. Then, Thursday night at 8pm EST we’re hosting a LIVE Spreecast!
See the box below? Just come right back here to this post, and you can watch it happen right there! Join the chat, submit questions, even come on camera with us…we can’t wait to hear what you thought of our crafty competition!
