A Recalcitrant Wife and Mother Tells All

It’s finally here! Time to link up your Craft Whores entry!

ERMAHGERD! The day has come. It is time to start linking up your crafty whorishness!

If you are new here and have no idea what the what I’m talking about, I’ll fill you in with a Haiku (because I’m crafty with words AND glitter):

Craft Whores, a contest
for crafty, funny bloggers.
Link up and win shit!

Need more info? You can get caught up on the whole contest in three clicks:

1.) Introduction to Craft Whores
2.) Meet our awesome celebrity judges
3.) Aw HAYLE yeah, we have sponsors and prizes!

And because I’m still pinching myself that we somehow convinced these amazing women to play with us and judge your crafts (and you, really, if we’re being honest), I feel compelled to name-drop them one more time:

Jen: The Next Martha

Kathy: Crafty Chica

Robin: Balls to the Wall Y’all!






Speaking of being judged, I bet you’re wondering what our judges will be looking for in your crafts! Well let’s go there, shall we?

Basically, they are going to be looking for creativity, originality, general awesomeness, humor, effort, and in some cases, your familiarity with the human body. Our top three prizes will be as follows:

Best in Ho (the overall best contest entry)

Most Original (as in, wow – that is really unique!)

Most Anatomically Correct 

There will also be honorable mentions for things like effort and shock value.

And The Suniverse and I will each get to pick one or two entries that just tickle us in some way. Hey, it’s our contest. We make the rules.

Remember, this has to be something YOU made. Don’t just steal someone else’s photo from the Internet and claim it as your own. Don’t be that person. Nobody likes that person.

Due to popular demand, we’re going to leave the link up open for one week. It will officially close at 11:59 PM Thursday, September 20, 2012. That’s when the judging will begin. We’ll announce the winners on Thursday, September 27, 2012.

And let’s not forget these awesome folks for donating such fantastic prizes and for making us feel so special:

Alrighty then. On your marks, get set . . .


  1. Ninja Mom

    “Best in Ho.” Still laughing.

  2. Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla

    I will have to keep the kids away from this contest. They might eat the cross-stitch.

  3. Lady Estrogen

    Love Marsha’s lampshade. Those retro slides are hilarious!!

    Will be back on Monday with my pics 😉


  4. Jen @ Four Marrs & One Venus

    Love it– this is perfect… NOTE TO SELF: 1. Don’t bring a cucumber in the bedroom — and shoot a video– head bobbing– ummm. just don’t do it. OK!!!!

  5. L. Hewitt

    Thank you (both) for letting me do this.

  6. hollow tree ventures

    This is all kind of awesomeness. Also, I linked up prior to looking at the prizes and now I’m scared.

    Okay, I only wish I were sweet and innocent enough to be scared by that. But still, the haiku alone was worth the entry.

  7. The Bearded Iris

    Dear Marsha (of the Modest-Mouth Tumblr blog),

    I can’t figure out how to comment on your Sex-Ed lamp and am DYING to!! I am Tumblr-challenged. Is there a way to add a comment section to your post? If not, would you please email me? We need to make sure we can contact all the contestants in case they win a fabulous prize!

    Thank you for linking up!

  8. Dawn@LightenUp!

    I am SO glad you extended the deadline. Can’t wait to see everyone’s entries, and i will enter next week. If it doesnt win a vibrator, I will be sad and very, um, dissatisfied. But I know that you, Iris/Leslie, will like it for sure. 😉

  9. Sue at Wub Boo Mummy

    Marsha’s sex-ed lamp is so many kinds of awesome. I want it.

  10. tracy@sellabitmum

    I’m getting the best ideas for holiday gifts!!! xo

  11. dominique

    There are so many awesome entries, I think you are going to need more prizes! This has been such a hoot, I’m so grateful I got to be a part of it.

  12. Brianne

    I wish there was a popular vote because that dirty girl dishwasher magnet had me in tears. OMG I want one!
