Lowe’s Event + GIVEAWAY

Friday, May 13th, 2011

Hello everyone, I’m just so glad it’s Friday!  Announcing the winner of last week’s Shutterfly Giveaway, here are the four winners:  #6 Barbara Brooks;  #115 Laura Sharbaugh; #395 Rebecca Kavan; and #421 Sarah Davenport.  Congratulations!

This past Monday evening, I was honored to attend a very cool event in New York City sponsored by Lowe’s, showcasing their line of Hi-Def paints in Valspar’s signature colors

The evening’s event began in this very cool downtown modern all white loft space brightened with splashes of Valspar paint samples all over the walls.

We were invited to mix and mingle with the other 30 bloggers invited, and greeting us were new quarts of fresh paint and paintbrushes for the upcoming challenges.  To me, paint always represents new beginnings and the ability to reveal hidden potential in just about anything.

Shutterfly GIVEAWAY

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Hello hello, happy Friday!  Announcing the winner of last week’s Shabby Apple Giveaway, congratulations to #306 Alicia Larson and #1,212 Rylann Johnson.  Ladies, look for an email from me!

This weekend’s giveaway comes to you from Shutterfly, a fabulous source for all of your photo needs and creations, from canvas art to personalized gifts to photo printing. 

I’m particularly impressed with Shutterfly’s photo books, have you seen all the layout options available?  My very good friend takes all her pictures of her kids from their summer adventures, and has them made into a photo book every fall.  She showed me her collection the other day, and I got a little weepy.  Seriously, such a brilliant idea to have a series of ‘Summer Fun’ books from every year!
