Contest: Enter to Win The DIY Wedding Book


Ah. It finally feels like life is returning to normal.

As much as I like adventure and newness, I also like routines and the comforts of home.

I am starting to feel grounded again as I do laundry and return to daily blogging.

I've also committed to cleaning and organizing each room of our house (thankfully we only have six rooms total: living room, dining room, kitchen, office/craft room, bathroom, bedroom).

Yesterday I worked on the living room. I emptied out our massive bookshelf, dusted each shelf, and personally looked at each book to make sure it deserves precious shelf space.

One of the books that did not make the cut: The DIY Wedding.

Don't get me wrong--it's a great book! But my wedding is over. It's time to pass on the book to one lucky winner.

If you would like to enter the contest, please leave your first name and last initial in the comments section. It's that easy. You have until Sunday, January 11, at 11:59 EST to enter. Good luck!

On New Year's Day, I did a complete overhaul/cleanout of all the papers I've collected over the past couple years. It was brutal, but I feel so light!

i've (slightly guiltily) been stalking your blog for a few months...guilty only as i was not yet engaged. but after totaling each others's cars in an ice storm over Christmas, the boyfriend bought me a ring, so now i can guiltlessly and engaged-ly stalk (err...read) your blog until our july wedding!

thanks for all the wonderful, creative advice!

This is a great giveaway. I'm not going to enter, because the postage to NZ makes it a little silly. But I might have to borrow the idea in some way soon. I have a lot of organising to do!
