A Thank You Giveaway!

By on April 21, 2014

I am so honored and still in shock that I won season 9 of Project Run & Play! Thanks to you, my readers, for believing in me, and voting for me! I’m so thankful for all I’ve learned this past month, and for the new blogging friends I’ve made. Looking back a year ago, I never would have pictured myself competing in PR&P. I didn’t even have a blog back then! Looking back a MONTH ago, I never would have pictured myself winning PR&P! I was up against some fierce competition.

Have you voted yet? If not, head on over to Project Run & Play to cast a vote for your favorite (I hope it’s mine?!) and then come back here and read all of the details about this fun look!

Thanks for all of the lovely comments you left last week! And thanks to you, my readers, for voting me here for another week!

I really love how beautiful it is when done right, but mine was anything but beautiful. Then I tried some glue-resist (like wax-resist/batik dyeing) and again, a fail. I did manage to dye my fingernails a lovely shade of blue though.
