I'm in the giving mood!


Take advantage of this...I'm all misty and googly and warm-hearted this weekend. (NO, I'm not pregnant!!) Feeling the holiday love, maybe? I don't know what it is. But I was in Joann's today and thought since so many of you mentioned you don't have access to a Joann's to purchase one of the big honkin' letters I used for the monogram here, I figured I would buy one for you.

Yes, I know, I rock. Seriously. I know.

Soooo...this weekend, leave a comment, and I'll randomly pick one of you on Monday to receive your BIG HUGE MASSIVE letter you can fluff/garland/spray paint to your hearts content!! I still haven't figured out how I'll package this baby up for shipping, but no worries! (If you have an Ikea/Ballard outlet/NKOTB concert near you, I may just drive it out to you.)

Just comment and tell me what letter you want! Have fun! ;)

P.S. I am SO behind on a load of shout outs...coming this weekend, I swear!!

P.P.S. Even if you have a Joann's nearby, enter! Feel the love.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yay! I was looking for one at Michaels today and sadly they don't have them. I would love a "C". It's not my last name yet, but hopefully it will be soon.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My last name starts with an "O" - which just might look like a plain old wreath! But it's worth a try- maybe they have slanted or elongated O's. :)

  139. Okay...I have been waiting to weigh in on your blog and now seems to be a good time. I have an IKEA and a Costco Home (only one in the country) about a mile from my house. Time for you to pack your bags, come to Phoenix and work your magic on my new home. Richard is optional but the little one coming along is mandatory.

  144. What a neat idea! Ok, so I may be too late, but maybe not... so in the event that I'm not, and the very unlikely chance that I win, I would like a "C". I've never see those letters, but they're awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  145. How about an "H"?!
