Happy Anniversary Giveaway


Woo-hoo! This giveaway has finally come to an end. Thanks so much to all of you who took the time to enter. I was very happy with the response this giveaway has gotten and, as always, I am overwhelmed by all of the support and private messages from so many of you. It goes without saying this site wouldn’t have had such a great first year live if it wasn’t for you.

Now, without further ado, the winner of the tie-dye kit is:

Abigail Bernier

Abigail, check your email and get back to me ASAP! Thanks to everyone who entered.


One year ago this week, I ventured out on my own after writing for others for 16 years.

I was nervous about this change, yet excited. All of the amazing support I got from all of you is what helped me make it through the most trying challenges I faced. I couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. I get so much positive feedback, either via comments here, email or on social media sites and each note brightens my day a little more.

I decided in honor of this 1 year anniversary I hold hold a fun giveaway. While the very first thing I thought of using as a prize is a Rainbow Loom and a collection of colorful bands (our craft store has almost an entire aisle dedicated to these!), I figured I would do something else this time around (remember, I gave away a Rainbow Loom back in November).

Happy Anniversary Giveaway

While cruising up and down the aisle at the craft store, a display for tie-dye caught my eye. I always associate tie-dye with summer (I remember tie-dyeing with my grandmother outside when I was young) so I thought this would be a great prize!  What do you think?

The prize for this giveaway is a Tulip One Step Tie Dye Kit. This kit includes 12 reusable squeeze bottle with high-quality dye powder inside. This kit is big enough to dye up to 36 projects (at least that is what the packages says). All you need to do is add water. It also includes several pairs of protective gloves, rubber bands, and instructions.

Also included in this prize package are three t-shirts. They are all large (14 – 16) in children’s sizes. I figured I would include these so you can jump in and get tie-dyeing right away!

So feel free to enter as often as possible and make sure you tell your friends to come enter. You might also want to sign up for the Family Crafts newsletter so you stay up to date on news about this giveaway and more to come.

    My boys and I made tie die shirts with their cousins two summers ago and they all loved it. It was so much fun to see what they came up with for colors and a design. This is such a fun giveaway. 🙂

    I love tie-die. I remember doing it as a kid at camp. My kids have not tried it yet, but with the way they are so creative (and love making a mess), I KNOW they’ll love it!

    Thank you so much for having such an awesome site! I’m looking forward to using all your great tips and information 🙂

    We used to tie dye at summer day camp. I always used so many colors that it turned the shirts puce. Back then, tie dyes head scarves (bandanas) were also big.

    WE tie-dyed tshirts back in Girl Scouts. Let’s see. I remember wearing the shirt to school, so that would have to be after the dress-code changed, and girls were allowed to wear pants. That would probably be about 1971-72. We couldn’t figure out how to do multi-colors, so mine wasblue. Came out cute though.

    We made tie dye shirts several years ago as a family and had a great time! However, we did learn that it is best to use 100% cotton tshirts and not the poly blend ones.

    I have many tie-dye memories! We used to do a batch of tie-dye everytime a new baby joined our family, nothing is cuter than a tie-dyed baby and each one would get onesies, tshirts, socks, bibs and a blanket.

    My favorite, most special tie-dye memory is our wedding! We made sashes, ascots and cummerbunds for our bridesmaids/groomsmen to wear and they looked fabulous. We still get compliments from family about these and were asked recently if we had plans to make replacements at some point because after almost 21 years the fabric is falling apart!

    I thought that was my favorite, most special tie-dye memory, until I wrote this… We have tie-dyed with so many friends and family members, some of of whom are no longer with us. The simple tie-dyed items help keep the memories alive and allow us to share the ones we miss with those who weren’t lucky enough to meet them.

    No I don’t have any tie dye memories even tho I grew up in the age when it was popular. My mom said she didn’t want to ruin her washing machine with dye.. I guess that’s how it was done then…. so we never had any tie dye shirts, bags, etc.

    Tie dye always reminds me of a bluegrass festival in my hometown.

    I remember these well from high school…deep in the Bicentennial era. But I’d like to try it for a quilt or two today!

    Growing up in the ’70’s we always had a bit of tie dye in our outfits. We used to use the Rit dye kits. It seems so easy now.
