tuesday's true confession & giveaway #4: your very own wall vinyl



Two blogversarybrithday giveaways in one day?!  I know . . . so fun! 
Have you checked out and entered the first three giveaways? 

If not, go to this post to enter to win a set of rosette ribbon bookmarks from Belle Rose Designs.  Go here to win a fabulous $25.00 credit to Flamingo Toes Designs.  And go here to win a crafty basket of absolute fun from A Legacy of Stitches

And now . . . continue reading for giveaway number 4!

Oh wait . . . first, I have to tell you my Tuesday's True Confession (because it actually applies to this giveaway . . . you thought I was going on a tangent, didn't you?).  Krista sent me a fabulous vinyl to review . . . custom-made JUST FOR ME! 

Woohoo! 

I love it.  It looks great.  She packaged it perfectly so it arrived in perfect condition.  But . . . I haven't put it on a wall yet, so I'm going to show it off later . . . like in February, and guess what?  I won't be showing it off on the walls of my current home because WE ARE MOVING . . . far away!  And I'm terrified and excited . . . but mostly terrified because so much has to be done before then.  I told my friend Lorene yesterday that we might just move and leave all of our stuff in the old house.  I have much more to say on this subject . . . later . . . I'll tell you all about it.  But I did want to let you know that I've worked with Krista personally.  She's great!  And I can't wait to do a review for her and show off her shop again in February!  Now, let's get on with it! 


Krista from While He Was Napping is a busy mom, blogger and Etsy shop owner.  She has a super fun variety of necklaces, earrings, Choose Your Own Adventure Date Night kits, vinyls and more.


Check out these great gifts you can pick up at her shop.


To help me celebrate my birthblobaversary day, she is giving away one 8 x 10 inch white vinyl subway art in a family theme.

So . . . a personalized family vinyl can be yours if you do the following and if you are chosen by the mysterious random.org:
