Please help! My bedroom has been accepted as an entry for Apartment Therapy's Color Contest and I would greatly appreciate your vote! The room is featured today on their blog. The winner in each category is determined by viewer votes. You can vote until noon, October 29th. Your "favorite" vote is much appreciated! For all my fellow decorative painters/artists, here is our chance to really promote stenciling. I have used the fennel stencil from the Stencil Library and Sheri Hoeger's Damask, from the Mad Stencilist. I would also appreciate it if you could forward this to your friends!
Hop on over to the Stencil Search blog today: http://www.stencilsearch.com/stencil-designers/furniture-stenciling/ for your chance to win not 1, not 2, but 3 fabulous sets of furniture stencils from Victoria Larsen. Julie Kefta, creator of my website, has posted this wonderful deal on her blog and all you have to do leave a comment on her site. Now, god knows I can rarely get you to leave a comment here on my blog, but maybe the enticement of some free stencils will get you to put your fingers to the keys. ;-) Good luck! (oh, and let me know if you DO win)!
Oh woe is me. I am having some technical difficulties trying to post some videos I shot to finish up the Wakefield job series posts. But....lucky for you, my good friend and fellow blogger, Julie Krefta, over at StencilTalk has alerted me about a great contest she is holding. You have until May 9th to enter to win a $50 gift certificate for stencils from iStencils.
We are asking you to join our team and sell as many pies for Community Servings as you possibly can, now through November 14th. The proceeds from the pie sales go toward providing nutritional meals to 675 critically ill people in and around Boston.
Pie in the Sky is your chance to treat your guests to a wonderful pie from one of Boston’s best known bakers while helping Community Servings reach their goal of selling over 10,000 pies. This year’s pie choices are: apple, diabetic apple, pecan, pumpkin, and sweet potato. All pies are $25 each.
Note: If you are ordering a single pie or two and want to just order on line, please use the drop down menu and select Leonesio, Carol as your salesperson, or use my sales number: 987. If you are selling multiple pies, please contact me first to get a number to register so your pie sales can be counted!
Now for the challenge: PainterGirl invites you to sell as many pies as you possibly can, between now and November 14th, for our team Paint It/Bordet Interiors. Whoever sells the MOST pies for our team will win a Fenway Park Billboard mural, hand painted on a wall of your choice. For more details on how to register to be a pie seller and mural specifics, please email PainterGirl at email@example.com Include the words Pie Challenge in the subject line, please. Here is a sample of the mural:
The size of the mural is approximately 5' h (including the John Hancock sign) and 5' long. Other logos can be selected, picture of batter is customized, as well as list of who is up to bat next and the date.
Please pass along this challenge to anyone you know and Thank You for supporting this very worthwhile cause! The more pies we all sell, the more meals Community Servings will be able to provide (always free of charge!) to their very needy clients! Even if you can buy just one pie for yourself, it will be greatly appreciated! Remember, the deadline is November 14th. The winner will be notified as soon as all counts are tallied and arrangements will be made to paint your mural!
