  10. I found your blog through pinterest and it is amazing! I relate to so many things that you post about. I would love to win the gift card for family organization projects that I want to do around our rental. We are working to get out of debt, so spending money on projects is a guilty pleasure. I would spend the gift card wisely, I promise!

    Oooh, yay! We are tackling some big projects this year. We have 7 kids, aged 23yo to 9mo., 1 girl, six boys. Yes, six boys. When my oldest got married and moved out, we ripped out her room to make a formal dining room. We need to tape, float and texture the ceiling and walls, put down wood laminate throughout the living room and new dining room, and decorate (finally!!!). I have been very patient - it's been a loooong process with so many little boys running around - but I see light at the end of the tunnel! Oh, and I am with you on moving the laundry to the basement! That is on my to-do list, as well! miamomof7atgmaildotcom

    I am currently working to redesign my small apartment living room into a living/creative/meeting space with a mediterranean feel. It is not only my social down time room, but must satisfy criteria as a client meeting room.

  16. Wow! What a great gift. I'm hoping to get my bathroom reno done in 2013. I purchased a copper sink vessel back in 2009 when I was in Mexico and had it shipped home... Hoping that 2013 is my "lucky" year to finally get that installed.

  37. I don't think my previous comment posted so let me start over:P This next year, I am very excited to try and transform my ordinary small home into a beautiful vintage, chabby/chic getaway. I definitely live on a budget so my decorating dreams have been stalled for quite some time, so this True Value gift card would most certainly lift my spirits and get me started with these great plans I have. Thank you so much for reading each of these comments and for sharing your time and pointers with us.

  58. So...alarm goes off at 5:00am this morning. Hit the snooze. Hear a crash...close by. What?? Shuffle into bathroom. Perplexed as to why towels are on floor covered in chunks of something. Stare. Keep staring trying to process. Oh. Right. Towel bar has fallen from the wall pulling chunks of drywall with it. Vibrations from the alarm clock in the adjoining bedroom? Insert 'bad' word here. Great I think now it goes with the peeling drywall surrounding the tub / shower enclosure. Nothing like fretting at 5:12am on the last day of the year when everyone in your house is still fast asleep and you have to go to work. Heavy sigh. Pull up TDC when I get to work and day is instantly brightened thinking I may receive one more much needed Christmas gift in the form of a $100 gift card to ACE Hardware. Kismet?
