Suggestions Please

Next week my blog will be one year old!
I'd love to do a giveaway.
I'm thinking that the prize could be something
that I've done a tutorial on this past year.
I could make one & personalize it just for you.
I want the gift to be something you would like.

I'D LOVE ANY SUGGESTIONS!!!

(To review my tutorials just click the tutorial label
at the bottom of the page)

I Love your blog, your ideas really do inspire me---and your tutorials.....well, in addition to inspiring, are just plain fun! The only, only, ONLY thing that would make this blog better would be more pictures. I just love to ogle your creations, and always hope to see pictures even it's different angles of stuff you posted before. Thanks for all your hard work here, and looking forward to another year!

Darlene said...

I have to tell you Joy, ANYTHING!!! I enjoy every thing you do!!♥

Kristen said...

Oh there are so many cute things! I love the chalkboard but anything you make is super fun!

Jawan said...

How 'bout I fly you to my home near Atlanta and have you as a guest in my "undecorated" home so you can complete a room a day for me? That would be my suggestion...I'm just sayin'.

Valarie Lea said...

That would be awesome! I am so glad I found your blog, I have gotten lots of inspiration from here.

Regina said...

I love your blog! Happy One Year! I love love love the burlap monograms, but anything would be fantastic!

Connie said...

You have such an inspiring blog. I love your tutorials and crafts. Keep doing what you're doing, you are great.
Doing a give-away is just so nice. How 'bout you do something with a monogram, like the framed fabric one that you painted.
Come by for a visit sometime and see how you have inspired me.
Connie

Pam said...

Congrats on 1 year! I love your tutorials. My fave is the grain sack monogram.

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

You have great frames, so how about a chalk board as a giveaway? I would love that!! I need one for my kitchen.

Tracey said...

Happy Blog Anniversary!
I love reading all your wonderful ideas!! Thanks for sharing them :)
A giveaway is so sweet, and anything would be great but my pick would be the name plaque like you made for the couple getting married.

Twice as Nice said...

If I win I'll take a coffee table made from an old door...J/K. You're so talented I think anything you have made over would be great!

Thrifty Miss Priss said...

I just love all your ideas! I copied your flag on the old window last year and still love it! I think the burlap monogram would be a wonderful giveawa! It's so sweet of you to think of your readers!

Mind Your Manors said...

I sure do LOVE the monogrammed burlap! My vote would be for a tiny framed one of those those! oh, my initial is "R"! TEE, HEE!!!!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Anything, I agree! Your style is amazing! I am so inspired every time I read...I will enter any give-away-there is nothing I haven't enjoyed!

Bekahwm said...

I really enjoy following your blog and can definitely not pick just one tutorial that is my favorite. A few of my faves are:
*Grain Sack Tutorial
*Moss Balls
*Chalkboard Frame
*Both of the Fourth of July projects. (my son will turn two on the Fourth of July and I would LOVE to have either of those projects hanging!)

Sunshine said...

What a fun idea! They are all quite fun ideas on the tutorial. I think my most favorite is the grain sack reproduction of just the a in the oval frame! I love the idea of just one initial, the old look of it, and the frame is fabulous!

Paula said...

Everything is so cute it is hard to choose. But I am really partial to monograms, so I would choose something monogrammed.

Christie said...

I love reading your great, creative ideas...I love the chalkboard and the moss balls. It's hard to choose!

wilkinson_fam said...

Chalkboard, Burlap sack initialed art piece, or the coffee table and/or bookselves made out of doors (this one would be especially for me since I live close!). Any or all would be great!
Congrats on your anniversary!

Diane Conn said...

I really like your old painting turned chalkboard. I've been looking for just the right frame/price to try it my self. I'd love it if you would just make me one!!! Might be a little hard to mail though...

emilyem said...

I check your blog at least once a day--thanks for all the great ideas!! My vote would be for a chalkboard, burlap monogram or that one where you did "The Hoth Family." Anything you'd do would be awesome though!!

The Martin Family said...

Um i think Id really like one of your adorable tables. I keep meaning to make the one I asked you about but havent had the time yet so how bout you just do it for me. That would be a fabulous giveaway!! You are so inspiring!! Thanks for all the great tips you constantly give!!

Mom in High Heels said...

How about you fly to Germany and decorate the rest of my apartment and tweak what I've already done. And hey, you could get a cool European vacation out of it!
Seriously though, I would say anything monogrammed.

Laura of Harvest Lane said...

Who can decide?
You've done some really great tutorials. Maybe a how to make time to do the projects guide would be good. ~grin~

Julie said...

Joy I would have to agree with everyone else anything would be great I love them all and there all so fun.
Have a wonderful weekend
julie

Becky said...

What a talented woman you are. I love all the different projects you do with lettering. Very simple yet elegant. So my choice would be for you to do something with a letter. If I choose something you have already made that might stunt your creative brain. You could possibly decide to give an extra flare to your already wonderful project~creative peoples minds never stop.

the undomesticated wife said...

congrats on your upcoming "birthday!"

Jo said...

It's hard to believe you have only been doing this a year ~ you're such a natural at this and your ideas and talent are wonderful!

Anything you do would be fabulous.

Jo

Tina said...

Too many great things to chose from. My last name starts with an "A", so I really enjoy your monogram objects!

tabitha said...

Any of the things you've done tutorials on would be a great idea! Lately, I really like the faux vintage flour/grain sacks that you did.

KS said...

Thank you, Joy. : ) I just made my first monogram plaque, and I would send you a picture if I had a camera. My suggestion for a giveaway is a duplicate of your adorable memo board (dark frame with chicken wire inside). I love it.

Grandma said...

Could you just make me one of each?!!!! Thanks again. Gloria

Trudi said...

Lindsey said...

Happy 1 year bloggy Birthday to you! I just love your blog! If you were to do a giveaway and I were to win..which would just make my week...I would DIIIIEEEE!!! over one of the monogram burlap sacks you did that you put in the frame!

Carmen said...

i love your blog I look at it everyday and can't wait for all the new projects... you are a big inspiration to me... I love the tutorial on the grain sack with the family name... I love all the projects/
hugs

diXymiss said...

Your tutorials are great! I particularly appreciate the hints & tips on spray painting furniture pieces. That will come in handy ~ thanX!

All your projects are eXcellent. Among my favorites (besides the furniture) are the decoupaged necklace plaque, moss balls and the wooden monogrammed "A" plaque. But, my idea of an eXtra special "prize" would be a personal home decor consultation! ;-)

Jackie said...

i love all of your ideas and would LOVE any of it :)

Cherry's Jubilee said...

Joy...NOOO pun intended it has really been a JOY to "meet" you and have you share your wonderful creations with us. Anything from you would be fabolous but maybe one of your burlap creations with the person's monogram on it? You know how I love me some burlap! Congrats on you one year! Here is toooo many more. Cherry

TheReader23 said...

Here's my question....you're always redoing shelves and things. Where do you keep all the stuff when you're not using it? BTW, Happy Anniversary!

kenziebr said...

Congratulations on your one yr. anniversary! Love your blog!

abeautifulabode said...

Hi Joy!

Happy one year anniversary! I agree with your other readers...you could offer anything that you've made and it would be a great giveaway! Everything is just absolutely beautiful! :)

I was popping by to invite you and your readers to visit the new website of a friend of mine. Tricia is a freelance writer and mom of 4 who is launching a new website, BudgetArtists.com, on Monday that is dedicated to helping families live well through economic hard times. She's very passionate about this project and I'm trying to do my little bit to help her get the word out, so I'm inviting all my blogging friends over to visit her and participate in her giveaways. She also has several free seminars happening that cover everything from car maintenance to home management to job hunting.

If you get a chance, please drop by and say hello to her! Thanks.

xoxo - Shauntelle @ A Beautiful Abode

lani said...

I just love all your ideas!!! My favorite decor of yours is all your A's! My last name starts with A and I love that you have them all over your house! I want to start to do the same! Thanks for all your inspiration and congrats on your year anniversary!!

Lisa said...

The framed burlap monogram.

The wood letter initial plaque.

Basically *anything* in your house that you've done.

It's ALL good.

:)

Michelle said...

I love all your ideas, but the most I love your halloween boo sign.

cindy said...

I love tutorials, so when I found yours I made it one that I check out often. So when you ask for a suggestion, my favorite one is "You Asked, I Delivered". I adore letters around my house, so that one is my favorite, it looks so old and my little bungalow is filled with old things. So you could personalize that very easily for the winner of your giveaway. I would so love to win a giveaway, so I will enter yours when given the chance! Hugs, ~cindy s~
