Fab Freebie: Talent Show

***This giveaway is now closed – see who won below!***

This week’s randomly selected winner is… Sheilagh (who’s talents lie in “all aspects of art and being crafty!”). Congrats!

One of the most exciting parts of doing a project is getting to share the sweat-inducing results when it’s done. And that’s the idea behind HouseTalent, a free site where you can easily upload before pics, progress shots, and after photos of the DIYs that are going on in your digs. The friendly interface makes browsing other peoples’ accomplishments just as easy as uploading your own inspiration – from small furniture builds to major room overhauls. And to help you get some of your projects ready to share, HouseTalent is giving away a $250 gift card to World Market this week. Speaking of the world, this giveaway is available internationally – so if World Market doesn’t ship to you, you can select a local alternative for your gift card.

  • PRIZE: $250 gift card to World Market courtesy of HouseTalent (or an equivalent store if the winner is international)
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “I’M TALENTED” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … what’s your special talent? Do you sing or play a musical instrument? Do you have a photographic memory that wows all of your friends? Or can you wiggle your ears?
  • PRIZE SHIPS: This giveaway ships anywhere in the world!
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, May 15th or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winners. Good luck…

    I can collect more dog hair on my clothes in a single sitting than anyone I know! Gotta love lint-rolling everyday before work :)

  2. Kim says

    My special talent is that I can sleep anywhere / anytime. I’m excellent at napping!

    • Megan S. says

      Hey, I have that talent too! I once fell asleep against my husband’s back while at a rock concert. Luckily for me, he doesn’t dance around too much!

    • lauren says

      I’m talented!

      I too can sleep through anything! Movies at the theater, parties, etc etc. Also, after buying our first house a year ago, I’ve discovered that I actually have a pretty great interior decorating streak. YAY!

    I’M TALENTED. No amazing talents, but I think I’m pretty good a few things. Thanks for the chance.

    No one outside of my little high school knows I can play the saxophone. Someday I’m just going to bust it out and surprise my in-laws and friends. :)

    • Tiffany T. says

      I’m not being sarcastic, you should totally do that! I think the sax is so cool! That has the potential to be an excellent memory one day. I’d love to learn.
