  1. I subscribed via email. If I won I would let my 4 year old loose. She is obsessed with crafts. Today she even had her stuffed animals do a craft – with her directing them and “showing” them how. We have few colors of Apple Barrel already, but more would get used well.

  2. I subscribed to the RSS feed. I would use them to alter wood & paper mache items..but most of all I want to learn to paint (never to late, right?)

  3. I just subscribed. Thanks for the opportunity to win…and for another great crafty blog!! I love seeing all the craft ideas. So, what would I use these for – my projects obviously – and for my daughter. I’ve been wanting to experiment with paint on my crochet jewelry projects, so this might be the one I try!
