UncategorizedCreating with the Stars 2014 March 17, 2014You guys. The announcement has been made and I can’t believe it. I’m one of the 12 contestants chosen to compete in Creating with the Stars. Remember I submitted our Master Bath? Well, I’m still in shock, but apparently, they liked it and want us to compete! Do y’all know how it works? Each of the twelve contestants is paired with a blog star. I am so excited to be paired with Kari from UCreate. It actually feels sort of perfect. Over two years ago, when I was still a blog baby on my little personal blog Ms. Kari gave me my very first feature. She gave me that first little boost of confidence that maybe, just maybe, I was onto something. I love when things just come full-circle like that. And now I’ve been chosen to compete in this competition and she and I get paired to work together. She will mentor me throughout the process and give me all kinds of tips and advice. I feel honored and couldn’t be in better hands! There will be four rounds of competition. Every Monday for the next four weeks, a new set of projects will go up. They will be anonymous, so you won’t know which is mine, but fingers crossed you all will go over there and vote. The results will be announced each Wednesday. Each week, three bloggers get cut (ouch, it literally hurts to write that word!) and the rest will continue on and create for another week. After the fourth week, the winner will be announced! We have a theme for each week: Week 1 – Knock-off Week 2 – Paint Week 3 – Upcycle Week 4 – Home Decor I’ve got to go get to work! Knock-offs are a big favorite of mine, so this one should be fun! I’ll be doing updates and reminders to go vote, etc. when the time comes and would so appreciate you sharing your love with us! *** In other news, the winner of the Gypsy Soul Collective Giveaway is… Amanda, you have an e-mail in your inbox with details!
