1 Year Blogiversary!! {And A Giveaway!!}

 That's right, my blog is 1 year old today! Woo Hoo!! It's sure gone by quick; I guess it's true that time flies when you're having fun! I'm so glad that I decided to do this a year ago, because having this blog has helped me to find so many amazingly talented people who come up with ingenious ways to decorate their homes. The biggest thing that I've learned this year is that the sky really is the limit when it comes to decorating, and that we don't have to have the house of our dreams in order to have the home of our dreams. We can make it that way no matter what we're working with, and no matter the size of our budget. It's really very inspiring, and if I'm being honest, makes me a little teary eyed {I know I'm a nerd}.

But anyways to celebrate the passing of my first year, and also to thank all the amazing people I've met since starting this, I am going to have a giveaway! And what better to give away than something that I made with my own two, talented hands! ;)


Yes, he's going to one of you.

AND, because I'm so generous and couldn't bear the thought of only one winner, 
I decided to have two winners:


Someone else will win this one. 

My West Elm tree art knock-off continues to be my most popular project, so I figured I'd make another one and give it away to someone lucky. 

So, here's how to enter:

1. You must be a follower of this blog, so if you haven't yet, go hit that follow button!
2. Leave a comment on this post telling me which picture you'd like if you win. 

Just two easy steps!

For additional entries:

-Tweet about this giveaway and leave a separate comment letting me know that you did.
-Share to Facebook and leave a separate comment.
-Mention this giveaway in a blog post and leave a separate comment. 

Hopefully it works out that the two winners each want a different picture, but if both have the same favorite I'll have to flip a coin or something to see who gets their first choice!

The winners will be announced Friday the 24th.
