(Full disclosure: Steff Bomb is both a good friend of mine and a pleasant person to hang around with while eating pizza and drinking cans of cheap beer.)

Voted Best Indie Crafter two years running in the Reader‘s Best of Chicago issue, Steff Bomb makes her basic cable debut tonight on TLC’s Craft Wars at 10 PM CST/11 PM EST. The hour-long show pits three crafters against one another in themed challenges with “wacky materials” until one emerges victorious, having concocted a painfully adorable stuffed whatever. Steff explains it best: “It’s very Beyond The Thunderdome, but with more hot glue and less Tina Turner.”
