Design Sponge in Nashville + Enter To Win The Design*Sponge Book!



I was sooo excited when Design*Sponge announced that Nashville would be a stop on their book tour! I signed up right away when registrations opened and got in early for the craft workshop!

I ran into Melodie as I was walking in and we sat at an empty table and were soon joined by really nice women! It was so fun to be meet others and know that we are all united by our love of Design*Sponge!

Grace introduced herself and Amy, they walked us through our project (freezer paper stencils, one of the DIY projects from the book), and then mixed and mingled as we all worked on our designs. It was a little stressful because I felt so much pressure to make something super amazing since I was among so many design-loving gals. I cracked and did something simple - my new initial, Y.



Grace walked around and spent some time at our table. We chatted with her and she signed our books. I had an extra book and I asked her to sign it to give it away on Owl Really!



That's right! You can enter to win an autographed copy of Design*Sponge at Home on Owl Really!

  9. I'd love to follow your blog, Jamie...but I don't see a way to do so by email. I guess I'm just the one old dog that you can't teach new tricks to....especially when it comes to computers. I clicked one button and it just disappeared.

    Well, good luck to all that enter...I bet the book is full of great ideas.
