"bright idea" giveaway



Hello! I guess it's been a while. I'm still shaking my head that Labor Day has passed. Since my last post life has been busy with the boys going back to school (still adjusting to needing to be so organized on a daily basis), reviewing layouts of the book (pinch me!), pitching new ideas, and finally getting around to some home improvement projects.



I even missed posting on my 4th Blogthday, a milestone that means so very much to me. To thank everyone for still visiting despite my absence, I'm having a little giveaway.



The prize is the two frames featured in my "make it" feature of the October issue of Romantic Homes. I will also assemble a bag of tinkering treats to include.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. You do not need a blog to enter, just be sure to check back to see if you have won or leave your email address in your entry comment. This giveaway is open to international blog friends, too.

For additional chances, post about the giveaway on your blog, Facebook page or Twitter and leave a comment for each so that I know to include those entries.

A winner will be chosen using Random.org on Monday, September 17, 2012.

Have a great week!
