Time to meet another Judge Super Star!
Have you auditioned yet??? Time is running out, so hurry on over!
Hi there Nap Time Crafter fans! I was honored when Amy asked if I would be interested in being a guest judge for this season’s American Crafter! My name is Amanda Formaro and you may have seen me in a few places around the blogosphere 🙂 My personal craft blog is Crafts by Amanda, but I also have a cooking blog (Amanda’s Cookin’) and I own Fun Family Crafts as well. If that wasn’t enough to keep me busy, I’m also the Home & Garden editor over at the fabulous Craft Gossip and I am the Senior Editor for Copycat Crafts. I’m also a designer for DecoArt and have appeared in print several times over the years, most recently in Parents Magazine. I have several other gigs, but wow, that’s overwhelming enough, isn’t it? 😉
For five years I was the craft expert for Disney’s Kaboose.com where you’ll find over 500 of my craft tutorials for kids. In keeping with that tradition, you’ll find lots of kid’s projects on my blog but plenty of adult projects as well. Some of my favorites include the Halloween Painted Jar Luminaries I made a couple years ago, the Recycled Bread Tag Monsters I made last year, and for the home decor buffs out there, this Distressed Eat Sign and these Decoupage Family Photo Plaques. I love, love, love to craft, especially using recycled materials, and adore creating things for my home. I look so forward to seeing what this competition brings and know it’s going to be really hard to choose. There’s such great talent out there, can’t wait to see what you do!
