Barn Owl Primitives signs- GIVEAWAY!! (contest)

Oh wow! As I was browsing through Twitter last night – and looking at some of my new Twit-friends …I stumbled across a fabulous free giveaway! (Thanks Shelley Smith!)

Barn Owl Primitives is another great Etsy shop – they specialize in printed signage for your home… and if you’re anything like me – people can actually READ your house!! haha!! I am addicted to signage and have just about used every square inch of my wall space for some type or another of signage. (Pretty sure this is annoying my husband – but I happen to LOVE IT!!)

Check out this great contest for a $50 gift certificate to the Barn Owl Primitives store!!


Here is some of the work you will see in the store! My fav is the “You Are My Sunshine” yellow sign! HOW CUTE IS THAT!!!

2Raymond Design Co is HERE!!

Richard & I are so happy to announce the launch of our Etsy store  & new venture 2Raymond Design Co! I posted 5 items for sale today – and navigated my way through the Etsy set up pretty well if I do say so myself! There are 4 custom sets of tumbled stone coasters & 1 fabulous chalkboard plate (that I almost couldn’t part with) – and more items coming this week!

We are currently working on 4 custom shadow box jewelry cases – hoping those will be finished and ready to list this week!! Other items in the works are the “Signs of Life” custom signs — which will showcase a special date and initials in a very very awesome & unique way. We will also be offering custom vinyl lettering (for wall decor) by Spring time! (Very excited about that one!)

To all my Discover Fabulous fans (Facebook, Twitter and elsewhere) – thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing support since the launch of Discover Fabulous on December 16th! We have grown FAST to over 200 fans and are hoping for 1000 by the end of the year! Please continue to share our site & blog with your friends.

Lastly, I hope that everyone is enjoying the contests & free giveaways… they will continue FOR EVER I promise!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE surprising people with something unexpected & I intend to keep doing it as a regular part of this new business. All contests and giveaways will be posted on the blog & Facebook so watch out for them! (Currently we are collecting entries for a FREE Amazon Kindle – drawing on Feb 1st.
