Last Favorite things GIVE AWAY… a tear

Ah it’s so sad my list of Favorite things has slowly come to a close. I hope you all enjoyed the give-aways this year. The response has been amazing and it will now become a yearly tradition!



Last week I was finally able to watch Julie and Julia. Ever since I’ve been watching previews for this movie a certain clip has always made me a bit teary eyed.



 



In the scene Julie is explaining her love of Julia to her husband and says, “ She saved me. I was drowning and she pulled me out of the ocean.”



I hate to get sappy, but that is exactly how I feel about blogging and my readers. When I started this blog I was at a total stage of discontent with my job. I had moved around a bit trying to find the perfect fit and nothing every felt right. My thoughts always went back to being my own boss and interior design.

 



This blog gave me the confidence to do that.  My schooling is 99% finished (just waiting on my grades for my final unit), after 4 web designers I’m finally with one that is doing an amazing job on my professional site,  after that the blog gets a re-vamp and then hopefully a little secret side project I’ve been working on with some fellow bloggers will be revealed.

 



All of these give-aways was my little way of saying Thank you! There have been many ups and a couple downs this year and I have been able to get through it all with your support.

 



So, what’s my final give-away and favorite thing?

 



Well, it’s me of course!



esi



One lucky winner will get one of my e-decorating packages



What that includes:



-Design plan that explains all the sets neccessary to get the look you want to achieve in the room.

-Resource list, which will have all the stores/links where you can purchase items according to your project. To the trade items are available as well!



-Unlimited access to me via email with any questions, concerns you may have.

 



The rules remain the same as before. Here is what you have to do to enter!

 



- Make sure you are a follower. Either on this blog or through google reader.

 


-Leave a comment letting me know what room you want done!

 


- If you tweet about this give-away go ahead and enter again.

 


- If you post about this give-away on your blog do the same and enter again.

Oh, my office is in serious need of some help! You definately saved the best give away for last. I hope year 2010 is YOUR year--sounds like it's going to be!

Shelly said...

Fabulous!!! I'd love to have my guest bedroom redone into an oasis where vistors can relax and recharge!

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Our office needs serious help! Right now, it amounts to an oversized desk, with stacks of books lining the walls (on the floor) A revamp is a must!

P.S. - Can't wait to see what the new year has in store for you - congrats on finding your passion, and going for it!

Hello Lover... said...

Dining room! Help please!

Katie said...

yes, please!

mtlbaker said...

We just moved into our first house and our kitchen came equipped with lovely orange counters - I am dying for a change but have no idea where to start. Help! This would be the best Christmas gift ever.

Brandy said...

Would love it!

Teri said...

Awesome! I would really like some help with my dining room!

Jenn said...

Congrats on almost finishing your schooling. That is an amazing accomplishment and I just adore your blog. I so envy you! Thanks for the chance to win on all of these giveaways!

I would pick my living room because it's open to my kitchen and it's so hard for me to figure out how to decorate in such a HUGE space! It's hard to decide colors and where paint should end. I don't even enjoy the layout. lol It's a mess!

Mary said...

Awesome! I would love a fresh new perspective and many of my rooms are a work in progress!

What an awesome giveaway!

I'd have to choose my kitchen. It's really a very sorry sight right now.

what a fabuould giveaway!!! i have several rooms in need of a makeover/revamp (family room, dining room, daughter's room). thanks!

Jennifer said...

This is the best give-away yet (ever!)!!!! I need some MAJOR help on my living room and you would be just the person to do it!

ms. less is always more said...

You are so sweet... I love that line in the movie too, because really don't we all (or shouldn't we all!?!?) have something like that in our life - the ONE thing that has saved us or changed us? Love it!

I could use some SERIOUS help on my master bedroom. I want it to be chic and cozy and put-together but it's a wreck... a little of this and a little of that and for the life of me I can't pull it together!

Kim said...

You are so right. My blog did the same for me! Our living room could use some help. We knocked out a wall to the kitchen and now I can't figure out how to arrange the furniture around it! Plus the walls are bare because I don't know how to fill them. It's a boring mess.

ms. less is always more said...

just tweeted it too! :)

Daniela said...

My living room needs help!
dram910@gmail.com

Kate said...

What a generous offer ... I'd love for you to tackle our living room. It's the first room guests see when they enter our home, but is terribly underutilized (we hang out in the family room). Would LOVE your assistance in bringing the room to life with form and function. Thanks! Kate (Google Reader follower ... and sorry if I inadvertantly entered twice - the orginal post hasn't shown up, so I think I messed it up somehow!)

Shannon said...

Thank you so much for the opportunity. Such sweet sentiment behind it too.

I would definitely choose my master bedroom. It's seriously lacking, and I'm not sure what direction I'd like to take it.

gail@myrepurposedlife.blogspot.com said...

ohhh, I need help with my living room. It's in desperate need of a makeover, but if I won, I would be on a shoestring budget... probably too much of a challenge for ya! :(
but, I'll enter anyway, and if I win, we'll see what we can accomplish together.!
and of course I follow you. :)

jamie said...

It's hard to pick just 1 room! I have a room that was designed on the tv show Find & Design and I'm ready to start making it my "own" and kinda change some things up in it. It's a guest bedroom that will most likely become an office/craft room in the spring when I get a roommate and have to move all my junk out of the extra bedroom! Would love some help transitioning the room!

Kari said...

I'm hoping to need a nursery room this coming year!

Sarah said...

pick me, pick me... ;) This is the best giveaway EVER.
Since I am in a new house I need all rooms done but the one that I would like to see a change in most would be my kitchen/kitchette area. I need help with fabrics for the window coverings and placement of wall fixtures. It's open to the great room so it's hard for me to figure out what to choose.
THANKS!!!!

I would love to do our whole space! But if I had to pick one I would say our living room/office area. It's such a tough spot because its oddly shapped but all one area.

My half done living room could really use your touch!

Cristin said...

After kids, I decided to go back to school to learn design. My first client encouraged me to blog to help with marketing. I never thought I would stick with it or enjoy it. Here I am - I have posted almost 150 articles!

I have always loved your blog.

I have a feeling that this is going to be your most popular give away thus far, so I just blogged about it to double my chances.

Momto3Munchkins said...

We are an Air Force family who is moving to FL over Christmas time. The house we are moving into is a blank slate, and I really need help in designing all of it, but most of all the family room. We have 3 kids 3 and under, so I no longer have time to work on designing it myself like I did after our last move.
Thanks for considering us!

Awesome. I would LOVE some advice for our family room which also blends into our kitchen which blends into our dining room. Okay, I'm going to need more than one. :) You can pick. We're in the middle of a house reno and it's a blank canvas there right now.

rj said...

You are generous, and offering just what I need. I have a family room with a triangle of paths through it. It is long, and I have never yet found an arrangement that makes sense! I follow you via Bloglines, and have so enjoyed your posts!

Lauren said...

Ooh what a nice idea!! So generous of you. I would LOVE to have your help - My boyfriend and I are moving tomorrow from our current 1 bedroom apartment to a new place with 2 bedrooms and a lot more space, and I'm really at a loss as to what to do with the new place!!

In particular, it would be AMAZING to have your help with the new living room... A lot of stuff has to go on in that room - Couch and conversation/tv type area obviously, but also all of my books, my work area, and my boyfriend's computer area. I don't know where to start!! :)

Amanda said...

I only recently came across your blog but am happy to say I know what you mean about how inspirational this not-so-little blog world can be in ways that far surpass simply home decor.

How lovely that it has helped you pursue your dream! Because after all, dreams are meant to be chased. est wishes in all you do!

Now for my entry... man oh man if you only knew what a BIG blank canvas our family room was. Words wouldn't do my desire to win this any justice. So I'm off to post about this on my blog and enter a second time. :)

Kelly K. said...

This would be so great to win! I really need help with the master bedroom to make it cohesive, relaxing and inviting.

Amanda said...

Back again... I posted about it on my little blog and although there are only 12 followers of mine who will read about it, they are important to me and deserve the chance to win this fab prize too. :) Best of luck to everyone, I can only imagine how happy this would make so many.

Jen said...

I know your business will be such a success & how great to be able to do something that you love!

Is 'my whole house' outside the scope of this contest? That's how much I really need help with.

I would love help designing my craft room / office which is now where we store all of the junk we haven't found a place for yet!

You're awesome!

I'm already a follower on Google Reader.

I really really really need design work done on my living room. We call it the cathedral - it's so huge but really funny shaped it's hard to do much. When we expanded the house, we knocked out walls and moved doorways, leaving us with a large area and dead space.

Smiles~

mkelton24 said...

Umm..where do I even begin! My husband and I just bought out first little 1949 fixer upper. Last night was our first night in the house and we slept in the guest room. This was actually fun because it was his big 30th birthday and I felt like we were at a bed and breakfast or something-so fun! Anyhoo...we are working on the master bedroom today actually- it needed much work to windows, caulking, patching sheetrock and setteling cracks-but now it has been primed and painted a nice creamy white. We are going to get one more coat on everything today and the big move in is tomorrow. We REALLY could use the help. Why is it that every other room I have great furniture, art and nic-nacks-but our room- it is like the dud! It needs a little attention from you and we would L-O-V-E to win!
