Well 200 Came and Went, so…..GIVEAWAY…$50 Visa Card!!!


I was going to have another giveaway when I reached 200 followers, but y’all are too quick so this will be my 300+ Google followers giveaway!  Hooray!! :)

I really appreciate the support you all have shown me with this blog.  It’s really incredible and blows me away.  So, to show my appreciation and get your Monday off to a good start, I’ve decided to give y’all the chance to win a $50 Visa gift card!!  Yes, that’s cold hard cash folks.

When I had asked y’all what you would like as the next giveaway, there were several great ideas.  But, I decided to be a rebel and go against them and get something that I know ANYONE could use.  Since not everyone has Hobby Lobby or Homegoods nearby, I thought this would be a great idea so you can use it anywhere!

I do have one mandatory requirement though.  If you win, please promise me you will use it on something for your home or crafts, etc., and not something lame like milk, bread, or cheese okay?  :)

I will give you all 3 chances to enter:

1. Leave a comment letting me know how excited you are about this giveaway.

2. Become a follower through Google or RSS if you aren’t already, and leave a comment letting me know.  If you follow already, just leave a comment that you do.

3. Blog, tweet, or post about this on Facebook and leave a comment letting me know.

Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Facebook also.  I’d love to follow you back!

I will run this giveaway through Saturday morning, July 31st and will announce the winner then.  I will use Random.org to choose the winner.

Good luck friends!!

One more thing…Don’t forget to check out my fabulous sponsors Wired Whimsy, Lisa Leonard Designs, and The Vintage Pearl. They will knock your socks off! :)

    I’m very excited – I just got a new comforter set for my bed, and now I need to paint the room. My bedroom is like, 20 x 20! So, I need the moolah to buy paint and primer!

  273. I am very excited about this contest. I would probably buy books or new clothes.

  274. I’m a follower.

  275. I just signed up to follow you on Google and “liked” Decorchick on FaceBook only cause I couldn’t “love” it! I stumbled onto your blog from the Thrifty Decor Chick blog. I too am a stay-at-home mom with a love of decorating on a budget. I love your open profession of God’s grace in your life and as a fellow Southerner, was drawn like a moth to a porch light by the word “y’all”.

    I was enjoying your pictures when I noticed the picture of your husband and baby girl. I’d swear he looked just like a guy that came to my home (contracted) to fix my ailing, practically new dryer. What was freakier, was that the guy saw my house full of youngins and commented that he missed his wife (in Chicago) who was pregnant at the time. Weird?!

    Any who, I look forward to more of your posts in the future! God bless!

  276. I would love a giftcard! I’d love to do something crafty for my baby’s nursery! :)

  290. Wow generous giveaway! It is rare that I can spend at Hobby Lobby so I would SO enjoy this gift card to use there!

  291. I am now a friend with Google. I came by way of “Today’s Creative Blog”. The mason jar soap dispenser brought me over here, I love that idea!

  292. I have been a cyber-stalker of your website for quite some time!!! Love it! Now I’m proud to say I have come out of hiding and am an official “follower!!!

    I can’t remember where I found you, but it was the mason jar soap dispenser post that someone had linked to. I collect old mason jars and keep all manner of things in them. Can’t wait to try the soap dispenser!!

  293. I love giveaways!!! So cool. If I were to win, I’d still use it at Hobby Lobby (most likely) though it would be nice to try out the Home Goods store. I haven’t been brave enough to go there, I know I’d be addicted immediately!

  294. I love your site!!
    I found a lamp just yesterday at Home Goods, $49.99, the gift card will just cover it!!!!! :)

  397. So excited for chance to win the $50 VISA. Just finalized plan to redo a small, doored cabinet that currently stands on the landing of my stairs. The down side is I’ve chosen two paint colors (Key Lime Pie and the “white” of the swatch) and it’s over $30 for a quart of each! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Also want to drill holes in back for ventilation as it currently has a turquoise lantern on each shelf that run on batteries…gets too hot and the battery connections seem to overheat. If that doesn’t solve the problem, Plan B is to install small lights like those used to illuminate paintings. Plans, plans, plans….also want to build corner built in with doors in my LR to house computer, accessories as well as DVD / VHS players (that will eventually hook into a wall mounted flat screen TV that I won’t have to squint to see :) THEN there’s the kitchen cabinets….another story someday.

  398. I’m very excited about this! I want a new light fixture for my kitchen (the one we currently have is so very hideous that it’s painful to even look at!) so I would use it toward that.
