    Just wonderful!!! Great prizes to win. Love the site and ALL the inspiration, couldn’t do all the crafting (well, know how to do it) without you girls!

  • February 8, 2011 at 7:12 am

    Once upon a time, I was perusing through websites looking for a headband for my Grandaughter “Alexandria”, when I happened upon DIY Dish and have been a fan ever since. Lo and behold I have since become an avid jewelry maker and am beginning my own business called “Retro Ally” bassed on my love of Retro, EVERYTHING! hence the name “Retro Ally”. Your website has inspired me to make jewelry, old fashioned aprons, hats, headbands and hair apparral, I have also ventured into sewing pillow case dresses, retro (of course), quilting, crocheting (not so great) and knitting (boy have I lost that skill) as well as card making for gifts and scrapbookking amd I utilize the scrapbookking gromments, antique keys, keyholdes, stickers, etc to keep the cost down on my jewelry. I also do polymer clay pieces for both jewelry and cards. See what you started, It’s GREAT! I recently had an accident at work and after 19 years have lost enough of the use of my right hand that all of these things keep my hand working, thank you so much for providing me with a fun way to work my hands and all the giggling you two do, keeps me smiling, it makes me feel as if there are two friends in the room crafting with me as I am alone with my projects WAY to much. Looney tune time with both of you and 10 friends would be hysterical. Have fun I know you will. FYI, it was the giggling that got me big time today! For my friends, please check out this video, it’s great

  • Janet
    February 8, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    I would love to win the epic 6 cutting and embossing tool. For several years I’ve directed Vacation Bible School at my church and could use it for so many things…promotional information (signs & fliers), invitations, decorations, bulletin inserts and craft projects for the kids. Our theme this year is “Pandamania” so we could have little pands peeking out of every door, from behind every picture, sticking up from every floral arrangement and on and on! Then I could use it at home to cut fabric for applique! What a dream machine! I love it! And, wouldn’t it be cool if all of the ladies who help with VBS had their own Epic 6/Letterpress Combo machine to help get some of those projects done!

  • Lucy P

    It’s -23 degrees celsius today. I need something to keep me busy indoors! I also want to be the most popular mom on the block so everyone comes over HERE rather than ME trudging out in my boots through the snow!

  • February 8, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I love what the Epic 6 can do. I am always looking for new and fresh ideas for my crafty projects. I decorate for our church and for two ladies teas each year. Fresh, exciting ideas and always on my mind. Love it, love it, love it!!!!!

  • February 8, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Ok, I am so loving this! I posted on my blog and liked on my FB as well. On the site I love the the love release take out box, because I love stuff like this and I just drooled over that heart strawberry. SOOO CUTE!

    I’ve been hankering for a die cut machine for a while, and it seems like the Epic 6 would fit the bill nicely… especially seeing it used on fabric! If Canadians are eligible for this part of the contest, count me in! (And wish I could enter for the crafting night – lucky you, future winner!)

    Hi I think the EPIC is an under used tool! It can do so many things and people always think they have to spend big $$ to get a good machine. Th EPIC 6 is nicely priced for all crafters budgets!

    I love the Letterpress and the look it gives you!!

    Pick me pick me…my crafty friends would LOVE this party!!

    What a blast that would be! But, alas, I have no video making possibilities. Perhaps this party will be such a success, you will do it again when we technically challenged fans can also be considered. I would like to know if Kim made the ball-fringe scarf she wore in the video. If so, if there a tutorial for that? My daughter would LOVE it.

  • February 8, 2011 at 6:34 pm

    So much fun! I would love to win a fun craft night with my friends, plus such a great tool too.

    What a wonderful giveaway. Your sponsors are so generous. I have to say I am a bit of a sucker for cute boxes and the fry box and dessert box are just too cute. Loved the way the fry box was used for cut veggies at the baby shower. I must admit, however, that the opportunity to meet the two of you is the truly irresistible part of the prize. Can’t wait for all the fun to begin with Season 3.

    I would love to have the craft party. The DIY Dish has been such a wonderful addition to my favorite sites. I love to craft and quilt/sew and my “Favorites” tab on my computer will prove it. The Craft/quilting tab is the biggest of them all. When ever my friends and I would go shopping and they would find something cute that was crafted, I would tell them not to buy it, we can figure out how to make it our selves. And we would. Now that I am working full time I have less time to do what I love and this craft night party would be awesome. I would love to have you in my home along with my friends. The fun flowers on the cake caught my eye first. So much fun. I love to have fun :)

  • February 9, 2011 at 3:17 am

    SO cute—what an awesome give away. I LOVE that cake slice die—and the roses. Geeze–too bad I’m not in the market to get married—all the DIY stuff for weddings these days is the best!!!

    I became disabled in 2005 and had to stop working. Since I became disabled I have lost contact with most of my friends. In 2007, I starting making jewelry. When I discovered DIY Dish, it was like discovering two new friends. I would really like to win the party and get to meet you both and maybe reconnect with some of my missing friends.

  • February 9, 2011 at 3:44 am

    I am so excited! My mother was a crafter – most of her items she created from scratch. She would have been 85 on February 8, the day I learned about this contest. I think she would be very excited and if I win, she will be there in spirit with us! I will be sending in my video and sharing a couple of items she created. I am going to share this on our facebook page for fool4pepper crafts. I already have my list of friends and family I would invite. I am really going to try hard to win this!

    My girls craft night was always the best night of the month. It doesn’t happen often anymore do to the fact that two of the girls moved an hour away. What a great gift this would be to share with all my girls. The letterpress has been on my ” gotta have list” for a while.

    Wow! I can’t believe I won! There are so many deserving fans! But before I accept the Epic 6 for my life time crafting achievement! I must first thank Kim and Kris for their awe inspiring craft ideas…..If it wasn’t for them Where Would I be?……….I’d like to thanks my mother who is an artist and creative person, My Husband for putting up with the endless papers, glue, threads, buttons, and all the other things I need to create, My children who had to endure the mother who was the scout leader and room mother just so I could hid my addiction to anything crafting…..and hopefully in time I’d like to thank future grandchildren……(more to make for)

    No, really……I’m just practicing…….and the OSCARS are coming……….and everyone needs a great acceptance speech!

  • Heidi
    February 9, 2011 at 5:54 am

  • February 9, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    I’ve always crafted, but just started cardmaking and have been creating with paper, textile and acrylics for a while now and I can’t stop! I’d love to get the Epic 6 to get me further on my way to making beautiful things! I’ll be sending you a video for the party too! Being fairly new in my area, I’d love to bring together the crafters and artists I’ve started meeting and make some connections!

    I belong to a club call the Midcounty Croppers and will share the contest with them. We all would love to have our own special night with Kim and Kris.
    I am very excited about the Epic 6 Giveaway. I have been looking at the Letterpress and wishing I had one. This is a great contest.

  • February 9, 2011 at 8:25 pm

    That would be awesome to win those products from lifestyle crafts. They look fun and something new is the best.

    Hi Kim and Kris!! Sooo, you may not remember me, but I’m your long-lost cousin that used to visit you 2 when you lived in So. Cal, you would teach me your cheerleading dances then there would be a big performance at the end… ring a bell yet?? Dave and Dawna Hancock were my parents, and my name is Jenn. I thought you girls were the cutest back then and you’re just as adorable now that you’re on Studio5! When I first saw you on, I was thinking, they look sooo familiar, then I told my mom and she watched too and sure enough, the twins!! This give-away is awesome! I would love to see you two also, hope all is well!! :)

    I love helping my friends put together parties for kids, baby showers, etc. I would love to have this to help out as would any of my crafting friends! I am going to figure out how to video myself–that should be loads of fun and quite comical to my kids!

    My friends and I are always getting together for a craft day or a scrap booking night. A night like this would be fantastic!

    I’d LOVE to win this prize, but I don’t even have room in my tiny NYC apartment for 10 guests alone – nevermind 2 extra hosts & all that equipment!!! I wonder…Could my sister w/ the big house in Cincinnati host it if I win?! hmmm…….

    Sounds lovely, but I don’t have 10 crafty friends. I don’t really have any friends living near me, and only one of them is crafty. So even though I’d love to be able to sit down whith her and play in what ever craft goodies there would be. But since I am my mom’s my only caregiver, that won’t be happening! So I wish who ever wins and her friends a wonderful crafty time! Thanks for all your lovely videos I’ve really enjoyed them!
    Hugs, Jessica

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10
    to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
