  • Michelle Stewart November 28, 2012, 4:25 am

  • Kate November 28, 2012, 7:39 am

    There are so many projects I want to do!! I am currently putting together a HUGE bulletin board for an upcoming author visit at school and all of these crafts would help me to make it AMAZING!! Not to mention all the uses at home – we are still in the process of creating a playroom for the kids and i told them that nothing goes into the room until it has a specific place to be and that it is labeled and organized – this would help tremendously!

  • Sharon Konkus November 28, 2012, 7:58 am

    There is so much to choose from. But I think I would make some crochet gloves, hats and scarves for Christmas with all that yarn!

  • Karen Osborne November 28, 2012, 8:45 am

    I would definitely use every bit of it!! Maybe the Cricut and the vinyl for some fun Christmas gifts. The yarn, I have been so hooked on crochet lately. Haven’t quilted in years, but I have been getting the itch to play with fabric again. OOOOOHHHH, the possibilities! This would make a very Merry Christmas!♥

  • Mj November 28, 2012, 9:32 am

  • Trasi December 3, 2012, 11:43 am

    I have just started my first quilt and I love it!! So having more fat quarters would be da bomb. I have also wanted to do so many projects and haven’t because I don’t have a cricut which would make making them so much nicer. And who doesn’t love sweets, my kids would go crazy if they had sweets more often. I just get so excited thinking about all the things I could do if I won!! Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Hppyhannah December 3, 2012, 12:47 pm

    My three daughters and I are crazy about crafting and would make such good use of these goodies! I have been trying to teach my oldest (6yrs) to knit so she’ll love the wool. And I have just learnt how to quilt so would make sure I got the the fat quarters first!
