CSN Stores Giveaway

Photo courtesy Daily Clip Art

Today is my birthday! We just spent 4 days in the hospital with our newborn daughter, who was having breathing difficulties after contracting RSV. She finally came home yesterday- the perfect birthday present!

It's still snowing out here, but spring is just around the corner. That means more outdoor time- and it means I need to start planning for my outdoor projects.

I'd love to help my readers with their spring projects- and I have a $20 online gift certificate from CSN Stores to give away for a little spring shopping. Are you planning on putting up backyard swing sets? Looking for a fire pit? Or are you working on an indoor project and need new bedding or towels? You can use this gift certificate for just about anything.

As for me, I'd like to focus on container gardening with bee-friendly plants and herbs for my kitchen ( you can freeze herbs you grow in summer to use next winter).

You can get up to three chances to win:
1) Leave a comment on this post telling me what spring project you will be working on.
2) Follow me in Google Friend Connect.
3) Write a blog post about this contest and link back to this post.

This contest will close on Saint Patrick's Day, March 17th, at 5PM.

The rules: Please be sure to leave a comment with each entry and a valid email address. This is open to US and Canadian readers only. Please be sure to note that not all items in CSN stores ship for free, though those priced over $70 often do. You will be responsible for shipping yourself.

I'm working on various quilting projects and sewing projects this spring. I still have fantasies of coming up with projects that I could sell and make money off of. Oh well, in the meantime I have fun.

Now a follower!

I need natural weed killing stuff for my backyard (2 big dogs + tons of rain and sun + overworked wife in grad school = no one to weed, leading to an ENTIRE yard of weeds!). I've been yanking up basically everything in the backyard, piece by piece. Once I finally finish that I will need grass seed in hopes I can coax it to live there again. Any steps towards that goal will make me happy!

Happy Birthday Jen. I'm so glad she's home!

Spring project will be de-cluttering. Just general 'junk' and also reconfiguring furniture into a more space saving arrangement. The gift certificate will be a big help in buying some space saving products!
