Thank you!!

Thank you to everyone that voted for Round 1 at Crafting with the Stars!

My project was the Queen Bee and Me Necklace set. 


If you missed the results post, I was eliminated.  After seeing the other projects, I totally expected it. My project was a good knock-off, but the competition was better!

77 of you voted for me.  If you factor out my friends and family that likely figured out my project because of my models, there were still around 50 people that thought my project was in the Top 3!  And for that, I'm VERY flattered!

To be totally honest, I'm kinda relieved.  Don't get me wrong, I really wanted to advance to the next round.  But it was stressful!  I LOVE crafting and creating.  But I don't love crafting and creating ... on a time line.   Even my husband said that I was in a bad mood when I was making my piece.

And because of that time line, I didn't get to put my best work out there.  I did a second version with thinner stitching and a brown ribbon necklace instead.  It was MUCH better!

I was honored to have been chosen to participate.  Thank you for each and every one of your support!

Special thanks to my beautiful sister, Jen, and my too too cute niece, Josie! They graciously agreed to be models for me.  And had to put up with my craziness running around trying to take pictures in the 15 minutes of free time that I had last week.


Coming up on Friday ... Queen Bee and Me Necklace Tutorial!


  1. Yaaaay! I was hoping you'd do a tutorial! I looooove your necklace! Is she your sister? I thought she looked like you! I felt the same way when I was eliminated. Part of me was totally bummed, but the other part of me was so relieved because it was SOOOO stressful! For what it's worth, I thought your knockoff looked the most like the original of all the projects.

  2. You did great, Sarah! I'm surprised you didn't get to go forward!

  3. Despite the results, you definitely deserve congrats for making it into the competition and for making such a beautiful necklace. I can't wait to see the tutorial and try one of my own. :)

  4. I think you did a fabulous job, Sarah! I'm sorry you got cut, but maybe it is for the best. I understand that time crunch feeling. It can turn things you love into a chore. :o/


I adore comments! Leave me some love, suggestions, comments here :)
