About The Episode
Episode archive posted on October 4, 2021
Episode #81 was an especially FUNN show for many of us with three Guest Crafters bringing their own spin and flavor to the parameters. Dubbed “Crafty Al and her Pals”, we got to host Crafty Al, Bitty Penny, and Crafty Mama Diaries to the wheel. Weren’t they just a ton of FUNN? Since Craft Roulette is a live show, bloopers are totally included. Such was the case when Crafty Mama Diaries “threw” the bonefolder the opposite way to Bitty Penny! Oh, my stars! FUNNy thing was, it went well in rehearsal! Me and my big ideas – thank you guys, I loved it.
Crafty Al – we all loved the moment when Mr. Producer suggested the Broadway play “Hamilton” to use as her star parameter! If you haven’t seen that moment, there is a screen shot in our “Community section of the Craft Roulette YT channel. Thank you, again, Crafty Al, with your SIXTH trip to the show! KYB!
Bitty Penny – you know Bitty Penny is serious when she shows up to the wheel with a hard hat on! So FUNN and so cute, Bitty Penny always brings a creative spin to the parameters! Great stuff! We really appreciate you joining us for your 3rd time. Thank you, BP.
Crafty Mama Diaries (Helen Schlette) – poor Helen was on medication for a bad tooth, no wonder she got confused with the bonefolder throw! There have only been a couple times when I have lost my “professional composure” and laughed hard during the show – and it seems to happen when this delightful woman joins us. Thank you, Helen! Hope your tooth is better!
Parameters and Submissions
The parameters turned out to be wildly broad for some really autumnal (and even a Christmas) interpretation! Goodness, Mr. Wheel, you do have a way with our creative muscle! Apparently, our dear viewers liked the parameters, too, because the gallery is overflowing with fabulous cards – wow! There should be some very well kissed nogs out there. Give yourself a round of applause. I love seeing how you take the 4 parameters and rock out every weekend. It is very touching to have you spend part of your weekend with us on the show and then with your creative submissions with us. Thank you!
Please note the first four submissions in The Gallery – these are our all-time contribution leaders, Patty Beck (76 consecutive submissions), Jacque Rippe (67 consecutive submissions), Sue Masoner (64 submissions), and Ellen CardMonkey Jarvis (59 consecutive submissions)! That is darn impressive. Thank you, ladies, you are so very much appreciated.
Craft Roulette (and our other endeavors) are community sponsored and we appreciate when our viewers find enough value in our content to support us as a patron. We do offer bonus content that our patrons say they enjoy. Please check out our Mary Gunn FUNN Patreon page and join us to keep us on the air and to show the world you support FUNN!
This weekend, our patrons got an early look at my submission.
We are going to adjust FUNN University (Craft Roulette’s sister YouTube channel). Starting this week, Study Hall will be renamed to “FUNNdamentals” (named by Mr. Producer’s brother). FUNNdamentals will be a live streamed class where I will dissect and explain design and techniques inspired by the previous week’s Craft Roulette parameters. I hope you will join us! Whether you like to sit in the back row, the front row, or in the middle, we look forward to getting to know you better.
The Thursday Cards+ Lab will be discontinued for now.
We hope that this will help you get even more from your Craft Roulette experience as we add this teaching element to the wheel.
This week we’ll be talking about color, especially orange! Join us on FUNN University at 6:30 p.m. CT Tuesday, October 5th. Please join us on our FUNN University Lounge FB group, too, for more FUNN.
This website is a part of a larger website called MaryGunnFUNN.com . You will also find my paper crafting blog, a FAQ on Club FUNN (our scrapbooking program), FUNN University blog, and more.
Thank you to our moderators on the lives, all for watching, helping support our Guest Crafters, helping us in chat, submitting your cards, mailing us your love, and just for being so doggone likeable. KYB
