Summer Giveaway!!

Hey Guys! It's time for my summer giveaway!
I hope you are all staying nice and cool. Of course it's still hot here in Arkansas. Last week it was cooler because of all the rain we had, but the heat has set in for a while now.
For the giveaway I thought I would make a frame in warm colors with a rhinestone flower center. I bought some chamomile and fruit tea to relax you on a warm summer day. I also picked up a sweet smelling vanilla citrus reed diffuser to give your home a warm fragrance. I bought the "Hope" sign when I was at market and dressed up a small candle holder with a little ribbon and metal flower. I will put everything in a box and ship it to the winner.
All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment! Also, if you don't have a blog be sure and leave me your e-mail address. I will draw a winner on July 20th...Good Luck!

I am working on more Etsy store items and will be posting them soon. I have really been slacking lately! lol... I think it's this heat! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen what a precious giveaway for the summer! I love everything.
I'm happy to see a new post from you. I know things get really busy for you all during the summer though. I definitely understand.
I'm glad you have been stopping by my blog and reading along. I have no idea how I keep coming up with new posts since I have not done any new decorating lately to speak of. Ha!

That is a really great price for the granite. Ours were 4000 from Lowes including the sink and instalation. Yikes. Next time we will find a home that already has them. I'm going to try not to go through all the hassles of changing things afterwards. Hardwoods are awesome! I never had them before and I am hooked. I wish we had them in every single room of our home. My allergies would thank me plus the clean up is easier. I love your gorgeous built ins. I'm glad you have them.
I hope you all enjoy the sailboat. That sounds like fun for Chase and his buddies!

Have wonderful weekend!
~Melissa :)

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How beautiful, Kristen! I love the colors in the ribbons. I think it is the heat/humidity. I know that I have been slacking and unmotivated because of it, too.

Karen said...

What a sweet gift! I would love to win it. I am also very unmotivated and feel like a slug. Of course, I should have known better than to start painting the interior of my home recently......We are roasting out here in Nevada also, and we have some serious humidity this week which we are not used to. Have a great weekend -- blessings!
