today is my lucky day!

Girls, I need to share the love!!

I won a contest today...and I am doing a happy dance all around the room because of it! (Ok, I did sit down long enough to type this, but I am going to continue my dance as soon as this post is finished!)

A few weeks ago, I found out about a contest sponsored by Purdy brand paint brushes. And let me tell ya, I LOVE me some Purdy paintbrushes!

I have been in the 'painted furniture business' now exactly 10 years, 5 months and 29 days and I have used a Purdy brush every single day I have painted! I don't even want to count how many pieces I have done in the last 10 years, but it has to be in the thousands!

I do not spray my furniture, I am crazy enough to do it all by hand. (Surprisingly I am yet to be stricked with Carpel Tunnel!) Now, I know there are a lot of you that spray, and I am not anti-spray or anything like that, I guess I just stick with what I know. I like the brush. I like how it applies the paint, and I like how durable it is. I am constantly hearing cusomters in my booth whisper "she sprays all this furniture"...and I always smile a little to myself because I am happy to know they recognize how smooth my finish is, so of course I point out it is done with a brush! I am not sure if that is a testament to the brush...or my skills...but I will be humble and say the brush!

(fyi...the Cub is my favorite brush...such great control and it can fit easily between shelves!)

So when I heard Purdy was sponsoring a "Share Your Purdy Story" contest I could not get to their website fast enough to get my entry in!

Can you believe they pick a winner

If I did the math right, that makes your chances pretty darn good!

What do you have to do to enter?? Just visit the link to their website below and tell Purdy why you love their brushes! (if you have never used one...I would say this is a perfect excuse to go buy one!)

The prize, you ask??

A $100 gift card to the Home Improvement store of your choice.

So go on, get over there and get your story in! You can also enter by showing photos of a project you completed with your Purdy brushes!

I'll even give you the link so you can get over there...FAST!

Good luck, and if you win...I wanna hear about it!
