Craft Contests, Giveaways, and Free Craft eBooks and Printables
Don't you love entering (and winning) craft giveaways? I do! I recently won an Xyron Create a Sticker Max sticker maker (shown here) just from entering a blog contest. All I had to do to enter was leave a comment and my email address.
Usually craft giveaways are random drawings so your chances of winning are as good as the next guy's. And all it takes is a few minutes of your time to enter.
And you know the drill: you can't win if you don't enter! So, be sure to check back here often. I'll update this article with craft contests and freebies when I find them.
