Burning Question: Rug On Rug Action?

Artist’s Block Freebie Winner!

Like many of you indicated in this week’s giveaway, I get over my writer’s block by diving in headfirst and doing something (instead of sitting there waiting for inspiration to strike). Like starting to type a post like this, even when I’m not sure where it’ll end up. Well, I do know that it’ll involve announcing the winner of some kid-friendly, but adult-worthy modern art from Numsi:

And while one of you is about to win $100 towards anything in Numsi’s shop, all of you can score a 15% discount by using the code YOUNGHOUSE now through July 1st. So have fun browsing their contemporary art or even their cards, buttons, clothes, calendars, and more.

But enough chit chat. Let’s get to our big winner. Once I got random.org over its number-generating block, it churned out our winner’s name: Emily L (who cures her creative block with a bit of fresh air). Congrats! Might you be kind enough to share what you’re planning to get with your gift card?

And don’t worry if you didn’t take home the big prize this week. On Monday you’ll have a chance to conquer your creativity block because that giveaway is gonna be up to you to design!
