Stars, Butterflies & Teardrops: Freebie Winners!

Sherry and I had trouble figuring out our own answer to the bonus question in this week’s giveaway about what you might dream of reaching stardom for accomplishing. I’ll admit that I had a fleeting vision in high school of “making it” as a rock star right after I was invited to jam with my friend’s band. But I was only invited once. Why? Um, because I was “jamming” on my French Horn. Meanwhile Sherry used to dream of becoming a well known fine artist but sheepishly admits that it’s been years since she has picked up a fan brush or some charcoal (consolation prize: she picks up a paint brush and a roller quite regularly). Maybe our house is her new canvas.

Anyways, let’s talk about the papery goodness going on with this week’s duo of prizes that are about to be awarded to a duo of winners. And we’ll kick it off with a duo of special discounts. The Starcraft is giving YHL readers 15% off any order in August with the code YOUNGHOUSE

…and This Neck of The Woods will refund the cost of shipping through August 19th (just mention Young House Love in the “notes to seller” for that reimbursement).

As for our pair of winners, we promised fame and fortune by means of a blog mention and it naively provided these two random names: Dana (who wants to reach fame for her future children’s books) and Nicole (who dreams of interior design stardom). Congrats!

And don’t worry if you didn’t take home the big prize this week. Monday’s giveaway marks another pairing of prize givers – one of our favorite new magazines is teaming up with one of our favorite decor stores. Swing by next week on Monday to find out who it is!

See our Giveaway FAQs for more info. Pics from The Starcraft & This Neck of The Woods.

    I know it might seem impossible with a newborn right now, but I hope Sherry does pick up a fan brush or charcoal one day– I think she’d be a great artist!

    And, John, it might not be the way you wanted, but believe me, to many of us, you two have definite rock star status. Rock on!!

      Aw thanks Letty! I did have a lot of fun painting some pear art work for John’s sister’s nursery a while back. Can’t wait to get back to it someday… hopefully soon! And you’re right, John is totally a rockstar- a woodworking rockstar, but a rockstar none the less!


  2. Dana says

    Yeah!! So excited to win this, it’s a first! I love these garlands and can’t wait to decorate with them in our soon-to-be baby boy’s nursery and our entryway. Pretty sure one of my kid’s books will be about a house that goes from unloved to treasured by the owners and quirky dog. :) Thanks again!!

  3. Nicole says

    Wow! Thank you so much! I’d like to thank the Academy…just kidding! But anyways, what a fun way to change a bad day into a great day. And the best part for me is that these are Etsy artists (a site I love to browse and order unique handmade items).

    Oh my goodness – I totally played the French horn too!
    That’s a totally useless comment, but I was too excited not to share :)
