Angela, I LOVE YOU!!! You crafted your heart out and that's all anyone can ask! I'm glad to see you've already started therapy! ~Betsy P.S. My mom said "I liked Angela's best, I would totally put that in my yard!"

Angela your ship was amazing. You are still my favorite crafter and an awesome tv personality! Love all that you do. It was wonderful to see you and patti back in action again. How about another weekly scrapbook show? Get the gang back together??

As "the" Halloween arbiter of the entire known world-you got hosed.Since I was not asked to judge-the results do not count.Unfortunately I don't have $10,000 to send you-would some candy help?

Awww man!!!! I should have been a judge. You really won, Angela. Hands down, your project was the best! Totally impressed. Pppffttt judges! :P

So sad that you didn't win Angela! My eight year old had her fingers crossed for you the whole show. I loved your ship. It was so well done and I thought you were going to win. I definately think that they need to have a rematch!

Loved the half-dollar size eyes when they wheeled out the lawn items and said 5 Hours!!! LOL. You did fantastic and I really loved the finished Haunted Shipwreck. Nice pier and loved the tulle over the water! The bat and trashcan moon were over the top...in a good way!
Great Job!

Giiiiiiiiirrrlllllll You were more than AMAZING. That was the closest call I've ever seen on this show and I know this was the first time the judges had a really hard time deciding. Your display was fun and I loved it! You looked great on the show and boy did you show off your crazy crafty prowess!

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndrea Currie

I thought you were awesome!!! I loved the ship and it was way more creative than a box covered with trash bags. You absolutely get my vote! You may not have won the show but you are still a winner. Way to go on a great project.

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMisty R

Oh man! I thought you had it in the bag...wait not a good reference.
You did such an amazing job, I can't believe you didn't win.
It was still so fun to watch because YOU were on it. My hubby was sad they didn't feature your octopus better!

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKara Dowling

Congrats on an amazing showing! That was quite a yard display! I would have voted for yours!

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjean marmo

You were robbed!! I love you!! You totally should have won!! Congrats on your appearance and your opportunity!! So proud to call you a friend!! You rawk cutie!! :)

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMichon

Not only is your craft project 1000 times better, but your video response has more creativity than 5 hours of wrapping garbage bags around a box frame! Ridiculous result, but best response ever! The judges must have had too much Halloween "candy."

August 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMr. F

I feel that the judges are wackos - What did they see in that monster. Your ship was awesome I would love to have that on my front lawn. No creativity from the other team or from the judges." Eek there's blood on there!" Duh It's Halloween. My kids said they should have had kids judge it. No kid - in there right mind would love that monster thingy. Unless they were 2yrs old. Really!

I love your video! You are the best! My son said you are still the Best Mary Jane ever!

I can't help it, I have to say it one more time, "Son of a biscuit, you should have won!" You are never going to live that phrase down...sorry. You had a great viewing party and you were great at not giving any hints as to who won. I did almost have a heart attack when your name wasn't called, though! I thought I was being pretty objective and expected you had it "in the bag" (and not a monster garbage bag, either) . The other project was cute, but I have to disagree with the judges on this one. Not just because I know you, either! I guess I owe you dinner. Darn, I was hoping for a much fancier establishment and fabulous food purchased with the ten grand! Well, a small portion of it. I guess you will have to be okay with Qdoba or something; I think I have a coupon.

You totally should have won!!! Those judges... sigh.
