New Blog Look & A Giveaway!




Hey there, everyone! It's still me, the blog just has a FUN new scrappy look thanks to the wonderful Fairy Blogmother Darcy of Graphically Designing! She was SO amazingly wonderful to work with, and if you need any bloggy help, she's the gal to see!



In honor of my fun bloggy makeover, & in keeping with the junkin' trip (read the past few posts)I just came back from,



I'm having a GIVEAWAY!!!



You can WIN your very own copy of "JUNK BEAUTIFUL: Room by Room Makeovers with Junkmarket Style"!!!




Such a fun book for decorating and project ideas using junk: stuff nobody has interest in that you could find at flea markets, thrift stores, curbside castoffs, grandma's attic, etc and could become treasure to you!



All you have to do to WIN this book "JUNK BEAUTIFUL" is leave me a little comment

***ON THIS POST ONLY!!!***

and be entered once into the drawing.
(don't forget to leave an e=mail address if you don't have a blog)




For a 2nd Entry, grab the HTML code for my new bloggy BUTTON (in the right sidebar) and put it on your blog, letting me know in your comment that you've done so, and I'll put your name in for another entry in the giveaway!!

You know you want this button! It says:

"My home is a....Blessed Nest!"

You have until when I wake up on Sun. Morning to enter to WIN this very cool book!!

I would love to be added to your drawing! And I love your pretty blog design! And I would certainly add you to my blog, with a button thing or whatever, but I have NO clue how to do those kind of things - oh well, I am mostly a lurker!

What a wonderful giveaway item!! I would so enjoy winning this book. I have a blog that I have recently dicided to stop posting on as it wasn't really going where I wanted it to. I have left it up and will put your little sidebar thingy on my old blog for others to see when they read it. I may start a new one and would love to use it there, also. Thanks for your great giveaway!!

Wow - what a very fun give away!!
I have to add so many people to my sidebar. I have been procrastinating and haven't added any one since the very first day I set up my blog. How bad is that.

JuJu and Family said...

So, I'm way too late on this one, but I just found your blog today. It's really neat. I'm new to all of this blog stuff and I'm looking for inspiration. A book like that would be very helpful. We've just moved and don't have a budget for decorating. Meaning, yard saling or nothing. That's good though because I like vintage things. I'll be checking back, here and there. Thanks, JuJu

Ki said...

Stacey,

Love your new design!! Don't worry, I am not trying to enter the contest...I can't wait to see who the winner is!

Peace,
Ki
