Another Giveaway!

Happy Friday Nesters!  Last month, I chronicled my layout-a-day progress.  This month, my focus has been on a different project.  In between Vacation Bible School and finishing up our homeschool-year, my husband and I have been in the middle of some much-needed home improvements.  Due to allergies, we made the decision to rip up all the carpeting in our home and replace it with wood laminate flooring.  Thankfully, this is limited to the bedrooms and two small hallways.  However, my husband is known for being frugal, so we're doing all the work ourselves.  

We started with the front bedroom, which will become my new craft room + my boys' playroom (currently, they'll bring toys in when I'm crafting so we figured why not try this configuration).  

I'm hoping to start moving in tonight or tomorrow.  Right now, the new space is pretty bare.  My boys are ones to prioritize, so the first thing in the room is the tv they just got from my parents.  :)  The tv stand is from Target, and it's really cute in person!

Also, the wall color is not quite so bright in person.  It's Benjamin Moore's Rosemary Green.  When I first put up a swatch, my husband thought I was going to paint the room neon's more of an apple green in person.  It's a happy color.

Right now, I'm in the middle of a major purge as I get ready to move in to the new space.  This is just a peek of what my craft room looks like right now:

That big box in the foreground of the picture is housing some of what I'm getting rid of...once I'm finished, be on the lookout for a destash giveaway here at the Nest.

For now, though, I have a small Amy Tangerine giveaway.  To enter, all you have to do is comment here on the blog with the type of posts that you'd like to see more of here at the Nest.  Do you like sketches, or challenges, or how-to videos, or process videos, or product picks, or something else entirely?  I'd really love to know, and it will help us as we plan future posts.  The giveaway will be open through next Sunday, June 22.  I'll post the randomly-chosen winner on Monday, June 23.

Before I go, I want to mention that Lain Ehmann is running a Father's Day special today on Jennifer Gallacher's "The Boys Are Back in Town" class from True Scrap 4.  It's only $8.95 through midnight tonight!


  1. Sketches and challenges are my favorite types of posts. I get inspired by seeing other's creations. thanks for the chance!

  2. You inspire me with all your creativity. I really enjoy how-to videos so I can learn something new. Thank you for being so generous.
