I'm a winner!

I never win anything--but I can't say that anymore! I have been wanting to do some wall stenciling from The Cutting Edge but was waiting for it to fit into my budget.  A blogger friend, Kathy from Creative Home Expressions had a drawing for a $50 gift certificate. Of course I entered, but I never thought I would win! When Kathy posted the winner and I saw my name I had to read it 3 times before I was sure. I was so excited!

I knew this is the stencil I wanted, called Anna Damask. It is $49.99 and so I contacted the company and asked if I could pay the postage myself, since I spent the whole gift certificate on the stencil. I knew this stencil would be timeless and would go so well with my style. The stencil company said they would pay for the postage and also would send me some tools. It was like Christmas when I got the package and included with the stencil was this tool set.

 It has a level, brush and roller...a $20 value. So nice of them! I am really excited to do this. Wish me luck!

Then my luck just continued! I have been wanting this Premiere issue magazine.

Well, Sandi at The Cottage Muse had a drawing for a copy...and I won! I was just delighted. I am saving it to read when I have a real relaxing time when I can have a glass of wine and really enjoy. Thanks Sandi!

I feel like I should buy a lottery ticket or something:)

I can't do a post these days without a kitten photo!

"Uh oh..Did I have kittens?"

I hope everyone has a pleasant and relaxing Memorial weekend.

Thanks for visiting!

You need to be entering more giveaways now, Sandy! You are clearly on a winning streak! : ) I can't wait to see your wall. That stencil is one I bought from them myself, but I haven't gotten to the wall where I wanted to do it yet.
