I Was Featured and You Can Be Too!

This has been a SUPER exciting week for me, to say the least.   I was stoked (wait?! Does anyone actually say stoked anymore?) thrilled to find out a few of my projects were chosen to be finalists at a couple of big contests going on in the DIY Blogosphere.

First up, I was over the moon to find out that Beth from Homestories A to Z selected my laundry room as her choice for the Samsung Best Dressed Laundry Room Contest on Pinterest. 

I am actually really proud of that laundry room since it is the first real 'whole room' project I tackled on my own.   It also was the first room I updated AFTER the invention of Pinterest, so I was able to put a lot of inspiration into it.  That original post doesn't get much traffic, and it was back when I was a young blogger so the photos are terrible so maybe I need to re-feature my laundry room again soon.  Hmmm... 

Next, (and probably my favorite surprise of my whole week whole blogging career) I learned that Brittany from Pretty Handy Girl (oh yes.. the same one from here) selected my kitchen to be a finalist in  One Project Closer's The Better Half Before and After DIY Contest (supporting Habitat for Humanity).
 The Humble Brag Supporting Habitat for Humanity
I won $50 to spend at Home Depot (can I get a whoot whoot?),  $100 was donated to Habitat for Humanity in my name, and I am in the running for the Grand Prize. Plus it is extra special being selected by Brittany since she is one of the reasons I had the guts to tear out the horrific light box and give tiling a shot for the first time.

Lastly, my kitchen was selected as one of three "Coolest Family Kitchens" on SheKnows.
I was representing the "Family with Small Children" demographic along with A Stroll Through Life (Retired and Downsizing) and Live Pretty on a Penny (Young, Newly Married and Hip.)  No, no..  I was not the "Hip" one. Shucks!  (This feature actually happened back in May, but I was busy with that whole "giving birth" thing.)

Now, enough about me.. here is where YOU come in.   You too can link up to the Before & After DIY Contest.. It isn't over yet.  There are still 3 weeks left and three guest judges (Shaken Together, My Blessed Life and Remodelaholic) will select 3 more finalists.  You don't have to be a blogger, you can email your entry in as well.

I never dreamed I would be selected, so what do you have to lose?  Just click the image below for details:

Once again I want to thank Beth, Brittany and Jana from She Knows for selecting my projects.  You have no idea how much it means to me!
