One month ago I found a wonderful blog, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. I was so inspired by Kristin's blog and the many other blogs I found through her's. Shortly after finding her blog I contacted her via e-mail asking a few question and she was so friendly and helpful. She is the reason why I started blogging again, she inspired me to get out there and just do something. I really believe had I not found her blog I would not have done the projects that I have done recently. This has had a two-fold affect, first today my oak table refinishing project was a feature (6th the one down) on her blog!! Every Tuesday My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia hosts a linky party, and a few of the previous weeks projects are featured. I linked up my table last week along with 100+ other really terrific projects. I was so honored to see my table featured with 6 other amazing features. So, where does the two-fold part come in?? Well, last night before I went to bed I received an e-mail from Brad and Amber with Shades of Amber. They host a link party each week to share your chalk paint projects. Last weeks party was a special link party in which every project you linked up was an entry into their drawing for 2 cans of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. If that wasn't enough the colors being given are the newest, have yet to be released colors: Coco and French Linen. What did that email say, well that I was the winner of course!!! I couldn't believe it, I was on cloud 9 all day today! The paint is currently being mixed and is expected to hit sometime this month. So, If it wasn't for My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia I would have never tried being a DIY'er nor would I have even heard about Chalk Paint. If I had never heard about chalk paint I wouldn't have had projects to link up to Shades of Amber's link party giveaway!
It is late, so I am not sure if I tied that together the way I wanted too but hopefully you understand.
Please visit both My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and Shades of Amber. There are many talented people who link up there projects and many take the time to share how they did it. Plus, they are great blogs!!
Many thanks to Kristin, Brad and Amber!
