Resident Blogger & Top 10


You know that Club that I participate in each month?

The club that I won $500 worth of cool products in it’s August monthly contest
because you sweetie pies helped me and told em’
that you loved my faux zinc tutorial?
The Club whose grand prize package
is now worth $1500?
fifteen. hundred. dollars.
DIY Club
Yeah. That one.
I am so excited to announce that the sweet gals
at the DIY Club invited me to be a 
Resident Blogger.
So, starting in January,
I’ll be sharing some DIY projects
with you as an official blogger for the Club.
I’ll write a few tutorials each month
for the DIY Club blog
and share them over there 
and I’ll let you know about them over here.

I can’t wait.
And, today the DIY Club announced
the Top 10 finalists for the November contest.

All the projects were great this month.
I’m particularly in love with
Mandi at Vintage Revival’s faux fireplace.
She’s amazing.
If I don’t find an antique, chippy, mantle soon, 
I know there’s still hope.
I also adore Birgit Kerr’s faux mercury glass tutorials.
She shares three different techniques to achieve
the gorgeous look of mercury glass. 
  I like options.
The DIY Club gals have a difficult decision
deciding the winner this month,
so hop over and help them out if you wouldn’t mind. 
And seriously
Start thinking about what project(s) you want to link up next month because you have a huge shot at $1500 worth of cool products.
If I can win this thing, I know you can. 
All you need to do is use at least one product from the Club’s sponsors…99 cent DecoArt paints, Gorilla Glue, a Purdy paintbrush just to name a few.

I really want to see you win.
Don’t make me name names here. :)
Thanks for stopping by today.
