Expert/Extreme Crafter Casting Call!

My wonderful friend Loren Chase passed this along to me last week.  I didn't want to share it until I was sure it was legit, but I spoke to Tami (the casting director) last night and it is REAL!  Have you ever wanted to be on tv? Want to share your crafting talent with the world?  Then I hope you will apply! This is NOT a competition show like Craft Wars, they are looking for a personality that they can build an entire show around.  Hurry though - they are only going to be casting for another week or so - and tell Tami that Beth Kingston sent you!  ;)
