You Know You’re a CRAFTAHOLIC when…. Photo Contest!

craftaholics anonymousHappy Tuesday! And welcome to Day #2 of the Craftaholics Anonymous blogiversary celebration!Did you like the WorkBox giveaway yesterday? Amazing, right?!

You Know You’re a Craftaholic When….

One of the most popular posts here on Craftaholics Anonymous are the “You know you’re a Craftaholic when…” contests. Its sort of like a real Craftaholics Anonymous meeting where we all sit back and laugh at our silly crafting quirks and realize that we’re not the only ones with crafting issues! {ok, so these sessions make me feel more normal and not so crazy. does that happen for anyone else?}

But this time around, I’m switching it up. I’m turning it into a Photo Contest! And I really want you to have fun with it!

You Know You’re a Craftaholic When….PHOTO CONTEST!


Prize: $100+ goodie pack of Crafting Supplies!

How to Enter:

  1. Snap a picture that shows me why YOU are a Craftaholic or that would complete the phrase: “You know you’re a Craftaholic when…”. Examples: your vast collection of crocheting hooks, glue strings in your hair while at the grocery store, or the insanity that used to be your office.
  2. Upload or share your picture on Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, Blog, Facebook, Flickr, Photobucket, or if you’d like, you can add it to the You Know You’re a Craftaholic When….Flickr Group. {please add #CraftaholicsAnonymous tag to the description of your photo wherever you share it to make it easier for others to see it.}
  3. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your photo.

Rules:  No more than 3 entries per person. Photo must be taken on or after 8/13/12 to qualify. Entries close at 12:01am on 8/19/12. The top 10 photos will be posted and readers vote on their favorite photo through 8/22/12. The photo with the most votes wins the prize pack!

I can’t wait to see your Craftaholic pictures! This is going to be so fun!

happy crafting,


 Stop by tomorrow for more fun in the Craftaholics Anonymous turns 3 celebration!

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 hve tried so many methods to get organized and nothing seems to do it. This workbox would be the thing. I love how it has tons of draws, pouches, etc and that they are clear so I can what is in each.
