Another Fun Friday Giveaway - CSN Stores

It's that time again...time for another giveaway from CSN Stores!  With so many projects lined up to get done before Little Miss Hart makes her arrival, it was really hard to turn down the product review for myself, but I really love my readers and wanted to show you guys how much I appreciate your support.

One lucky reader of Kara's Korner will receive a $35 gift card.  All for just reading my blog! (Wait?  You're not a follower or email subscriber?  Really?!  Why not?!?!  Go sign up...see the Please Follow Along or Email section right to the right on my sidebar!!)  So tell your Mom, Sisters, Aunts, and all of your friends to get their bootay's over here to try to win.  And then tell them what you'd like for them to buy you with the gift card they won.  Hey, they wouldn't have found it without you!

So what would have done with the gift card?!?!

Well, there's the obvious choice of something for the nursery.  But I'm much less decided on how I'm decorating in there just that's a no go for now.

I think I'd have to go with something in our bedroom.  Because we live in Florida, we only have a thin quilt on our bed.  With all this cold weather here lately, and Chris and I sleeping under 5 layers of bedding, I'd really love to get a new modern duvet covers for our bed for the winter.  There's 93 on the site to choose from, but I think my favorites, for our color scheme, are either the blue and yellow or gray and yellow ones.  Hmmm...

Although, I do love the clean lines of this brown one!

If you can't tell, fixing up our bedroom is on the 'list' for 2011!

Onto the details...

  • PRIZE: A $35 gift card to any CSN store.
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “I FOLLOW” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …since Chris thinks I'm crazy with how long my 2011 to-do list project wise is already, lets help me feel more sane and normal.  Please leave me a comment on what's on your to-do list for 2011 house/project wise.  If you don't have a to-do list for 2011 (oh, so jealous!!!), please leave a comment letting me know what you're excited about seeing on MY blog in 2011!  
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Friday, January 28th at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE IS EMAILED TO: US and Canada only.  For Canadian residents, please know that there may be international shipping charges when you use your gift card!

    What's on your to-do list for 2011 house/project wise?

    Get my arty/craft room finished - the floor, the walls, the ceiling! We moved in over a year ago and I'm itching to be able to have all of my creative things in one place! I can't wait!

    (Sorry about the deleted comments. I thought it was two entries...following and then the to-do list!)


    Do I even have to say what is on my to-do list this year?! Finish my kitchen before I hit the one-year mark!! Then I'm going to re-decorate the guest room so you and your FAMILY can come visit me!

  5. I FOLLOW!

    My 2011 To-Do-List includes a Master Bedroom redo! I plan on making an upholstered headboard, cornices for my windows with drapes, and refinishing my existing furniture. That sounds like a lot when I type it all out.

  6. follow via google reader and I subscribe via email.

    I have quite the list too: Finish master bedroom redo, build a shed, clean out the garage, de-clutter the entire house, crown molding in the bathroom, redo the master bathroom (if budget permits!). I am excited to see some of your projects.

  7. I'm a new follower! I could really use the $35 for a new kitchen rug.


  8. I FOLLOW! And...I have a lot of sewing projects to do this year, as well as getting our kitchen and bedroom better organized!

  9. I am a follower :) I don't have much of a to-do list for this house b/c it's on the market and we hope to move *sometime* this year (sooner rather than later I hope!!!). We'll have a huge list anywhere we go, though, I'm sure. Stay busy -- it will make the time fly!!!

  10. Ooooh....can't wait to see what you do with your bedroom. = )

  11. I follow via email. This early in the year my list isn't too bad. I have about 8 house projects and I'm hoping to get one done on Sunday. (painting the trim in the den).

  12. I FOLLOW (now - just discovered your blog today). My main project for 2011 is getting my office/workout room/den cleaned out and organized. Then I can move on to new dressers and bed for the guest bedroom.

  13. The things I still want to make are some hangers for my purse to carry the hand sanitizer. Got to busy to complete this before christmas. Want to redo the bathroom in the mater bedroom.

  14. I FOLLOW you!! On my list is to do a complete makeover of my room and I love the yellow and grey bed set!

  15. I follow. I've joined a 3 in 30 group where we commit to three things a month. So far I've taken everything out of my kitchen cabinets and reorganized them. We removed the cabinet doors. I am going to paint and put up some kind of backsplash - as soon as I figure out what.

    I also need to paint and organize the spare room and turn it into whatever it turns out it is going to be.

    Also? I need to tackle the basement. It makes me just want to move so I don't have to do it. I also have a bunch of antique furniture I am going to restore. And I do mean LOTS.

  16. Once we sell our other house (we each had one when we got married), the todo list will explode for the house in which we are living... replace the fascia board, replace the fence, fix the railing, take down a couple trees, replace the insulation and duct work, etc, etc, etc

    [email me at, user pennywatcher]

    tattgiff at centurytel dot net

  19. I follow via email. I'm in the process if de cluttering. The I need to make curtains for my entire house. In the AZ summer both blinds and curtains help keep the house cooler.

  20. I am a firm believer in having the master bedroom look and feel awesome- makes the day nicer to end and start if you like your surroundings- Stopping in from Trendy Treehouse New Friend Friday- and so YEA I'm following you now. Hope you stop by my place soon ;-)
