UPDATE: Please be aware that this giveaway is of an UNFINISHED roadside stand kit... not of the roadside stand that is completed in the pictures.

Okay... I know, I know... I haven't posted in a LONG time. To be truthful, I just got sidetracked by a million different little things.... I know you've NEVER done that ;)

Not much is going on. School just started and I'm already overwhelmed with homework. I have also, recently, taken up painting. As in... canvas, landscape painting. I won't bore you with my crummy first couple paintings, but I'm starting to like my new ones more and more... I'll post pics soon.

As promised (FOREVER ago), I am having my first giveaway. Now, it's not a huge deal like other giveaways are... but still a free prize all the same!

What I'm giving away is an unfinished roadside stand. This piece needs to be put together, but I don't want to do it for you, because I want you to do with it what you please.

An example of what I did with one of them is this:

Now, I didn't finish the wood (obviously)... but I think it turned out pretty good. So the possibilities are endless with this one.

Okay, the Giveaways Rules:

1. You must be a follower
2. The other rule is kinda strange... I want everyone to give me 1 piece of advice for life. Please please try to give me ones that haven't been mentioned yet.

There are no other rules! Though if you want to repost this on your blogs, that would be fine :)
This giveaway will be open until February 14th. I know that seems like a long time, but I want everyone to get a chance to enter... and also I want more pieces of advice!

So this is it... your chance to chime in and give your 2 cents.
Good Luck!!!!

  4. count me in! I am a follower. As for life lessons, hmm... this is a classic but soo true. Treat others the way you would like to be treated. How you treat the people around you says a lot about your character and people pay attention to that. Often your actions come back to haunt you ( either in a good way or bad ) when you least expect it.

  5. Now I understand what does mean the rule 2.
    In Italy we called Proverbi.
    Well, my is: My liberty finish where is started the one of my neighbor.
    In Italian it is better but I hope the sense is clear!

  6. My advice is very simple.......remember you are young for a very small part of your life and old for much longer. So make all of your young days worth remembering because we are old before we know it!

  7. Hello, I am one of your new followers and I would like to enter in this giveaway. This is truly unique!

  17. Hi Savannah,

    I will be following you too from now on.
    My advice for you; Instead of saying 'what if' try to say more often 'so what'.

    Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams...
    And follow your heart, it will tell you if it is good or bad for you and for others. :)

    I will put a link on my blog for your beautiful give away, please count me in?

    Hugs, Jollie
