The second season of the show was called Craftopia: Holiday Showdown and will feature both kids and adults as contestants. Deadline revealed that it was going to be an eight-episode season and will challenge the contestant to create “seasonal crafts”.

Crystal Anderson Partner: Is She Married Or Dating?
Craftopia’s Crystal Anderson is a queer black woman and she is dating Lakiesha Heidi Herman (or just Kiesh). Kiesh preferred the pronouns she/her. And Crystal’s partner is an entrepreneur and co-founder of an advertising agency called A Very Good Job.
Crystal and her partner, Kiesh started dating in May 2018. In fact, they celebrated their third anniversary (of being together) on 31 May 2021. And they got engaged about a year after they started dating, i.e. on 17 August 2019.
