I always claim that I'm not a very lucky person. I can enter contests, buy lottery tickets, enter blog giveaways, etc., until I'm blue in the face and seldom win. That's why I don't like gambling - even the slot machines - because as I put it, "I need positive reinforcement." If I don't get it, it ain't fun.
Oh, I have won occasionally. But the ratio of entries to winnings is astronomical. Well, shut the front door! I won something!!
I recently entered the Martha Stewart Halloween Giveaway at Paint Me Plaid. I think part of my motivation to enter this particular one is because I generally can't get into the whole Halloween thing. I should, though, because it's threatening to over-take Christmas as the biggest retail holiday. There's certain decor items I like for Halloween, and certain items I don't. As an adult I can think of only three times in my adult life that I wore a costume. But this may change all that.
Here's the comment I made:
I have boxes of wood pieces left over from home and garden projects, and I’m trying to upcycle/recycle/repurpose as much as I can these days. These products would be used until they are ALLLL GONE!
Here's the big announcement. And here's what I won:
There's fluorescent paint, fabric stiffener, chalkboard paint, and brushes. I can't wait to get started, and I already have some Halloween ideas that I like. So I think it's safe to say that I will do my thing for next Halloween!
BTW, Paint me Plaid is a great site. I love seeing and learning new craft techniques. Go take a look.
