GIVEAWAY: Plaid Enterprises

I love January and the new year. It's like we've all been given a clean slate & the year is full of possibilities. One thing I was adamant about when January 1st rolled around was to create an organized craft space in our new home. I spent much of 2011 trolling the internet, namely craft blogs & Pinterest, to find clever & creative ways to organize our home. The internet is FULL of neat ideas that never would have crossed my mind when it comes to organizing! Many of these projects & ideas incorporate a wonderful product that most crafters keep in their arsenal of supplies...MOD PODGE by Plaid! The Plaid blog is full of project ideas, organization tips & much more. I have featured Amy Anderson's Mod Podge Rocks blog before, because it is also a great resource for finding projects people around the world have completed using Mod Podge. I encourage you to explore the Paint Me Plaid blog, the Plaid website, and Plaid Crafts' Facebook page for more information about Mod Podge & tons of craft inspiration.

*** GIVEAWAY - Closed - Congrats Lani!***

PRIZE: One lucky winner will receive a Mod Podge Starter Pack (pictured above) from Plaid Enterprises.

TO ENTER: Visit the Plaid website & leave a comment on this post with a comment regarding a project you saw on their website OR a project you'd like to complete using Mod Podge.

ADDITIONAL ENTRY: Like Plaid on Facebook, then leave a comment on this post noting you have done so.
