"I just bought my first house!!! I have several projects planned: including painting, trim, molding, hardware, etc. Right now I can only afford a few small things. I’m going to be moving from my apartment and I can’t wait to actually be able to put paint on the walls!"

"We are working on our bathroom right now and could definitely use the money for refinishing our cabinets, new sinks, hardware and tile! Thanks so much!"

And on a totally random and unrelated topic, I have a little tip to share!  Ever make the mistake I made last week by leaving a water ring or spot on a piece of lovely *antique* or wood furniture?  Here’s a trick I use to make the water stain boo boo go bye bye. 

The Mayo Trick:

1) Don’t panic 2) Apply a coat of mayonnaise to the stain, leave for at least four hours, preferably overnight. 3) Wipe away the next day, there should be no trace of the stain.

Keep it in your bag of tricks and impress your friends at parties.  *Wink*

“Ahh, I’m irredeemably hooked on office supplies, and the cuter the better. I’m a list maker so would definitely be in the market for a Weekly Organizer. But their Jumbo To-Do clips caught me eye too.”

“This giveaway came at the perfect time! I just started a brand new job and just today I was thinking my poor cubical needs some spunk. I would stock up on pretty magazine holders and CERTAINLY the botanical file tote. Great giveaway – THANKS!”
