Giveaway: Edmonton Home & Garden Show

The Edmonton Home and Garden Show is coming up on March 22 - 25. It's a great place to hit up for inspiration, ideas and just all round motivation. (plus, the Edmonton Expo Centre usually has mini donut stands kicking around, mmmmm).

There are tons of great presenters this year including Tara Jamieson from Lauren Lane Decor.  Tara is a custom furniture painter/refinisher from Calgary. My sister and I are looking forward to checking out her presentation and hopefully learning a tip or two along the way. We both have a dining room table refinishing project we'd like to tackle one day, maybe this'll be just the inspiration we need to get our butts in gear.

Enough babbling, wanna win some tickets!? Tara has kindly offered up two tickets to one of you lucky readers. To win just leave a comment mentioning anything on your "to-do list" (or just a "I want to go" will suffice) and a winner will be randomly drawn before the show.

Contest closes March 15, 2012.

  2. Ooh! I would love to win some tickets!
    My husband and I bought our first house in October so there is always a big list of things to do/paint/decorate. Now we are expecting our first baby in August and the list is even longer! I can't wait to decorate the baby room...


  3. Oh man! Where to begin on that list... I agree on the dining table. My could use a redo! Home & Garden Show = SPRING!!!

  4. you've seen the top of my dining room table -- that should give you the answer right there ;)

  5. Hey, I've been following your little blog here for a while but rarely comment. I would love to go!!!

  6. We are currently developing our basement in preparation for baby #2! I'd love to go and get some ideas! Fingers crossed...

  7. Have missed the past couple shows because we were knee deep in renos! Would love some ideas for refinishing dining table my 2yr old has um.."decorated".

  8. We just got the keys to our new house, and although I have plenty of inspiration to decorate (ie. too much time spent on pinterest) I wouldn't mind some motivation to go with it. Hopefully they have a booth with that there :)

  9. Great giveaway! I would like to go see the show maybe I can tag along with you guys because Gord doesn't really want to go.
