Big Changes in 2013 & You Could be a Part of It!

I’m excited to announce some rather big changes coming to Craftaholics Anonymous® in 2013. And you could be a part of these big changes! Keep reading to find out how.

I started this blog over 3 years ago when my oldest was only 9 months old. He took 2 long naps each day, which gave me a lot of time on my hands as a new stay at home mom. So I started crafting {a lot} more and I decided to start a blog to chronicle my crafts.

Well, I now have 2 little boys…. and a baby on the way…..and as you can imagine, my life has changed a lot in the last 3 years with growing kids and a rapidly growing blog! And so its time for Craftaholics Anonymous® to make some big changes too.

Now this doesn’t come easy. I have literally pondered this change for years. But opening up my blog to others just hasn’t felt right….until now. And I’m really excited about it! I think it will be awesome for you to be inspired by more crafters, more projects, and different styles. I think it will only make this blog better and more inspiring!

2013 Creative Team Applications

creative team

I am officially opening up my blog to contributors and looking for a 2013 Creative Team for Craftaholics Anonymous®! yayyy!! Yes, you could have the opportunity to become a part of this blog and show off your work to thousands of people!

Not interested but know someone who would be perfect for this opportunity? Share this post with them and encourage them to apply! 

I am looking for:

  • A variety of crafters with fresh, creative ideas. I would love to have crafters with different skills share their passion and talent with us! Anything from crochet to repurposing junk to crafting with food!  I am looking for crafters of all ages and all walks of life.
  • Excellent photography skills. Creativity is so important, but you need to be able to capture the beauty of your creation with a camera. Think natural lighting, good composition, and no flash.
  • You do NOT need to be a blogger to apply! I know there are many fantastic crafters out there that do not blog. I would love to have you apply! My assistant or I can teach you what you need to know.
What will be expected:
  • 1-2 original, unpublished blog posts each month.
What you’ll get in return:
  • Payment for each post OR a sidebar ad {you pick!}
  • Link back to your blog/shop/site on the Contributors page {this will boost your SEO!}
  • Show off your work to crafters all over the world!
  • Possibly receive free crafting products from sponsors.
How to apply:
Send an email to with “2013 Creative Team” as the subject with the following info:
  • Name
  • Links to all your pages {Blog, Etsy Shop, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc}
  • What type of crafting you do {and if there’s a craft you’re particularly passionate about, let me know!}
  • Attach 3-4 images of your best crafts.
  • A little about yourself {3-5 sentences only}
Application Deadline is January 4, 2012. If you are chosen for the 2013 Creative Team, you will be notified by January 15, 2013. I will introduce the 2013 Creative Team in late January or beginning of February.

happy crafting!

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I have a friend that might be interested. But she doesn’t live in USA. Can people from all over the world applay, or not?

        Thank you :)

    Hi Linda… this sounds great but are you accepting any posts on more random basis? I don’t think I could commit to a regular schedule but I would love to do a feature once in a while for you…
    Thanks so much.

      Hi Susan,
      Right now I am accepting are craft room tour guest posts. Maybe after I get the Creative Team set, then I may try to offer guest posting spots. :)

    Linda, I think you are so smart to do this! I’ve often thought about what I’d do if we went for baby #3…I just don’t know how I’d keep up my once a day posting schedule. I’ve stayed away from having lots of guest posts and contributors, but you are so wise to realize the necessity NOW as opposed to when you’re in over your head. Hope you find just who you’re looking for!! :)

    Linda what an exciting adventure you have ahead of you! I wish I was in a place to be ready for this commitment but I will be watching as your design team produces more great stuff and I will occasionally see if you are interested in my latest adventures too! Have a blessed 2013! I will keep reading :) Kathi

    Wow! I would love to be part of your blog, but I don’t think my photography skills are quite up to par! Maybe that will be my New Year’s resolution so I can try out next year!

    Hi Linda,
    Your site is amazing! Thank you for the inspiration!
    I just sent you an e-mail. If I don’t really qualify for your crafty creative team, maybe we could be affilates? You don’t have to purchase anything from us to become an affiliate. Just swap buttons to put on your site. And you would receive a commission for products sold through your code.
    I am the director of some really neat and fun Family History software designed to get us younger momma’s and friends interested in preserving your photos, and multi media. We then give you really neat tools on how to share your stuff with others. Via cloud, storybooks, calendars and such. I can give you more info if you are interested. Thanks for your time!

    Hoping that you received my application and web site info. Would be great to work with you :)
