What’s on your wishlist this year?


  1. I love your blog. I have done several of your projects and get excited when I see an email in my inbox just to so I can check out the next DIY project I want to conquer!

    1. Thank you so much Christy that is awesome! I feel like I was on a DIY marathon for our wedding but now I’m playing catch up with a lot of other things. I hope to get my hands on a furniture makeover in the near future ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Those all sounds like practical things to spend it on ๐Ÿ™‚ I could use a new lens for my camera, I only have one and it doesn’t offer up much flexibility. Good luck!

  2. I would put it towards christmas gifts! We want to buy a nice train table for my toddler and I really want to get my husband a fitbit!

  3. The $250 would go towards my community. I love that this time of year is a time of giving, so while this may be me “receiving” a win, it’d be a greater good around me, which is the best gift I could get!

  4. I would put the entire $250 towards my wedding in April! Maybe spend some of it on the honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That’s definitely a great idea! Congratulations on your engagement and let me know if I can help in any way for your wedding – or make you something to use as decor ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Thank you for the great giveaway. I definitely could use the money to make a happy holiday for my family!

  6. I would use the $250 for for supplies for my wedding invitations for my wedding in July ๐Ÿ™‚ and for Christmas gifts for some really special people in my life that I haven’t been able to thank they way I wanted to!

  7. It would go to Craft supplies and DIY materials for Christmas Gifts, Am not working right now in order to devote all My time into getting my GED at 50 and we just found out Hubby hours are have been cut.

    1. Hi Cindy! I’m sorry to hear about your husbands hours being cut, but I think spending it on supplies to make your own gifts is an awesome idea! I plan to DIY most of ours as well. That’s great that you are devoting your time to getting your GED too. Thanks for entering and good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I would put the money towards the purchase of a new camera! I’m going to be taking some photography classes soon and would like to have updated gear! My Canon Powershot has given me a great last 4 years, but it’s about that time!

  9. I would use the $250.00 to buy a Fitbit for myself and the rest for Christmas gifts for my husband.

    1. That’s awesome! My pants don’t fit either, but I think that’s because I have eaten waaaaayyyy too many chocolate chip cookies this week, lol. Congratulations on losing the weight and good luck!

  10. I would probably buy Christmas gifts with it, but I would be incredibly tempted to buy myself a little something. There’s a Kate Spade bangle I’ve been eyeing for a while….

    1. Me too! I actually just purchased my first can of ASCP yesterday and it took me fooooorrreeevver to decide on a color. I couldn’t afford to get both milk and chalk paint so I went with chalk paint and mms wax, lol. Doesn’t that paint kit look awesome though and you would get to try both! Good luck!

  11. I would probably give the $250 to a great niece who is about to have her first baby in February.

  12. Oh my goodness I can’t believe this giveaway is true! How amazing! I would have to surprise my husband with using that money towards building him a shed! We have a landscaping business but no where to put our equipment! This would just be a blessing girls ๐Ÿ™‚
