We were on the phone the other day doing that thing that sisters do where we are able to talk about approximately 1,763 topics in the course of 30 minutes and yet when we hang up realize that there are still subjects we haven’t covered.
But, somewhere in the midst of those 1,763 topics we talked about someone very special. Someone who we value deeply and want them to know how much we appreciate them. Someone to whom we want to give the opportunity to shine.
Do you want to know who it was?
It was YOU!
We were talking about how sometimes in relationships things get a tad off-kilter. A bit one-sided even.
Here we are sharing all of our projects and we never get to see any of YOURS!
So, we decided it is time to bring some balance to this relationship.
We know that there are so many of you who are creative and talented. You have amazing projects you’ve completed for your home or your yard but you just don’t have a place to show them off.
And we want to give you that place!
How would you like to ‘Strut Your Stuff‘ here At the Picket Fence?
Because we want to show you off!
So, are you a non-blogger with an awesome home project you’ve completed that you would love to share?
We want to see it!
STRUT YOUR STUFF ~ Summer Edition
Send a photo (or photos!) of your completed summer OUTDOOR project to firstname.lastname@example.org
Include your name, the state where you’re located and a brief description of your project.
Deadline for submission is August 15.
We will be selecting projects to share here on the blog as well as on the At the Picket Fence Facebook Page.
We can’t wait to see all of your fantastic ideas and inspiration.
But, mostly, we are just so excited to get this one-sided relationship evened out and give YOU the chance to shine here At the Picket Fence!
