Meet Season 5 Contestants!

Here are the crafters for Season 5 in no particular order!

Hi I'm Teresa and I blog over at Crafting in My Closet!  I Love to Sew, Bake and cook. I also really like bead work (although with a 2 year old intricate bead work isn't really a possibility), I've been trying to learn to crochet for a few years, but I don't really have the patience for it =)
I've been married for 7 years and we have a 2 year old daughter and are expecting another one on 2/2/12! 
I also have an Etsy shop were I sell lots of little girly things. I'm so excited to be a part of OMTWI I've been a fan since the first season! 

Hi everyone I'm Susan. I'm the mother of 4 girls, I've been married to my husband Jim for 20 years and in my spare time a teacher.
I've always been creative, I especially enjoy decorating with repurposed and architectural materials. I like to sew, make jewelry and work on craft projects.
I love working on my blog, homeroad,( it gives me a great opportunity to share what I enjoy. My passion is turning junky finds into spectacular works of art!  

It all started with Barbie -- at six years old I was creating clothes for her using scotch tape, toilet paper and grocery bags (back when it was all brown bags). Propped up record albums and wrapping paper made an ideal home for her and Ken. Now, years later, with a husband, 9 kids, homeschool, my etsy shop and The Pennington Point to keep up with, I take my crafting needs out on my family. My poor husband of 25 years tells the kids, "Don't sit still too long or your mother will wrap you in burlap and hot glue something to your head!" I'd like to argue with him, but I can' worked with Barbie.

Hi! My name is Maggie and I write a little blog called Midwestern {Sewing} Girl... there I keep a permanent record of all of my creative endeavors...interspersed with little tidbits of family stuff.  I went to college to become a biologist and find myself all these years later a stay-at-home mom to 3 super-awesome crazy-cool kids and wife to the most practical, logical, supportive, hard-working, outstanding husband a girl could hope to have. I'm thankful every day that I am lucky enough to be doing what I love to do.  AND, I'm so excited to be part of this season on OMTWI! Yay!

Hi ! My name is Lauren and my blog is West Furniture Revival. I have a passion for creating, refinishing, painting and thrifting. I love to put my own spin on something old to bring out its beauty through restoration.  I am very happy to be part of OMTWI and hopefully I'll make it to the finish line!

I am Tone from Bless, by Tone. I am a full-time working, single mother of twin girls. I love to be creative. Being creative is my "time out" - it's where I get my energy and a lot of my joy. I love to sew, crochet and work with wood. Most of all I love spending time with my girls. I hope my blog will be a place crafty people look to for ideas and tutorials. I will do my best here at OMTW

Hey y'all, I'm Camille from Creative Pursuits. After changing careers and becoming a paralegal in a large law firm, I needed a creative outlet, so I started sewing in earnest when my daughter was born almost three years ago. I live in Atlanta, GA in a tiny condo with my husband, daughter and our first child Farley, a boxer. Our dining room table is usually overtaken by my sewing machines and crafts, but I'm okay with that.

My friends and family call me Dee and I am the La-Dee-Da crafter. My motto in life and crafting is, "Just keep ruffling." It is also a way of saying, "roll with the punches." My blog home is La-Dee-Da Creations and I love to craft on a budget and to be budget friendly. I love the challenge of spending the least amount of money I can, repurposing materials to make new creations and all with the goal of  creating a one of a kind creation. I craft in a La-Dee-Da way which means in a relaxed, carefree way and always doing it my way. 

I am a wife to a Navy Commander, a mom to 4 great kids and also to my La-Dee-Da doggie.

Hello!  My name is Amy and I blog over at Our Dish.  You'll find my self-taught sewing and other goofball projects mixed in with just about anything else I find entertaining at the moment!  I also love to shop, stay up late (yawn), soak in the tub, and eat sugary treats.  I am mom to 3 kids (all boys!) so I desperately use crafting to keep my love of all things girly alive and kicking.

Hi, I'm Terri and I have a craft blog called A Creative Princess. I've been a crafter all my life, but fairly new to this wonderful blogging world of ours. I'm having so much fun and loving every minute of it! I married my high school sweetheart and best friend. He just smiles at me when I say, "Don't throw that away, I can make something with it!" or "I've been thinking....". We have 3 beautiful children and 5 awesome grandchildren.

My name is Ralitsa. I'm born and live in Bulgaria. I started to make decoration and jewels out of paper as a joke and just for fun. Five years ago I can't and I don't want to stop crafting.
I've created the blog HiHaHo's stall to share my projects and tutorials, and to participate in Challenges on the net. So, here I am.
Wish you a lot of inspiration and happy crafting to everybody!
