National Craft Month Contests, Tutorials and Announcements

Happy National Craft Month!  We feel like this is a month long celebration and want you to celebrate with us!  We have so many wonderful things planned for National Craft Month, from weekly contests, to daily tutorials.  We have some BIG announcements and we will have some surprise contests throughout the month as well.

To get things kicked off let’s talk about the daily tutorials – Ever day for the entire month of March there will be a new craft project tutorial.  From using up scraps of scrapbooking paper, to using fabric to make some wonderful baby items to working with mason jars.  Just look under the Tutorials section of Homeketeers to see each days new tutorial.

Next Contests – So who wants to win a Cricut?  I am super excited to announce that we will be giving away FOUR Cricuts this month!!!!  Yes I said FOUR.  Three Cricut Mini’s and one Cricut Expression.  Each week there will be a winner.  Details Below.

And finally our Big announcement, later today the Homeketeers Shop will be live.  While many of you know about the monthly Scrapbooking Kits WeScrap was selling, some of you do not.  So since we have combined with WeScrap we thought it would be great to offer our members the ability to not only get their scrapbook kits from us but also crafting and baking kits!  Yes you heard me right, we will now be offering Crafting Kits and Baking Kits.  With each kit will be a tutorial on how to complete the project that goes with the corresponding kit.  Their will be cake and cupcake making lessons, and even quilting and sewing lessons.  We are so excited about this growth and we can’t wait for you to see the new shop.

    I would love to win a Cricut! I’ve been trying to save up to just get a mini for the last 6 months, but it seems right when I get to the point where I have enough- Life hits us, and my savings is gone. Being in a family where my husband is disabled with ESRD and has constant health issues and I’m back in school for my degree and we have 3 kids, I’m afraid I’ll never be able to get one, LOL! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  195. Would love to win the mini or expression 2.

  197. danicia sidener says:

    i would love to win the cricut expression! my daughter’s nursery needs some cute wall art!!!

  198. Carla Brown says:

    I do alot of theme scrapbooking with my childrens sports and school activities. I Always eye these at the stores but never have the extra money to purchase. And if I do I end up spending on my children instead of on for myself. So winning one would be an awesome gift for sure.

  199. I am hoping to win the Cricut 2 because, during our recent move my Husband mixed up my heavy boxes (filled with a new Cricut, a new Gypsy, cartridges and nearly all of my 12×12 paper pads that I’ve purchased over the last 20 years) with the empty flattened boxes for recycling and threw away my entire craft room!!! Needless to say I haven’t spoke to him in about a week because not only did he get rid of these items that I was excited to use again; but even worse — he threw away all of my childrens’ pictures (nearly 15K); 16 years of one child and 14 years worth of my 2nd child’s — all irreplaceable because they were not taken during the digital age. So, family members are trying to find any pics that I sent them over the years.  My heart is broken – but I’m trying to start all over and would love a Cricut Expression 2 to start my new craft space.  Thanks!
