About The Episode

Episode #42 CRAFT BOWL 2021

Whew! The long and the short of it is, HOW FUNN!


We had some very special crafters on the show. Each have so much to offer the crafting community. We loved them all, didn't we?
Be sure to scroll down for their social media links, bios, and great submissions made live without any preparation! Thank you, Jayma, Ardyth, and Crafty Al. You guys got 2021 off to an incredibly cute start!

Be sure to support them by following them, liking their posts, and using their affiliate links.


Another interesting combination of parameters for our Craft Bowl Guest Crafters!
Every week there is a "curve ball" that stretches us just a little and we end up with cute cards that would never have been made otherwise. The wheel is a creativity block buster!


By the huge amount of submissions, all outstanding, the wheel and our Guest Crafters stirred up your creative juices! From Sweden to Australia and lots of points in between the wheel is bringing the world a little closer. WoW, you brought game!

You are invited to join the Craft Roulette Facebook group. We’ll feature many of these cute cards in the group this week, so you can encourage the contributor, share with your friends, and be inspired. Be sure to join us, but to be approved all the questions must be answered and you must agree to the rules. Thank you!
