  21. Ashley MacNair says

    We purchased a beautiful home a year ago. Unfortunately the walls are still bare and the furnishings are minimal :( Being “house poor” we try our best to make and build things ourself. We love DIY projects and would love to see the DIY blogger house (as well as the other homes) and hopefully get some more great ideas, as well as how to put everything together. My husband is very visual, if he sees it he can usually build it. I would love to win tickets to see the homes in person -although my husband may not ;) Thanks

  22. Cynthia says

    Fantastic ideas that I could use in my home. We are getting ready to sell our home and move into a new, smaller home. I need lots of ideas on how to downsize and the blogger home looks like it could give me lots of ideas.

  23. Jenny says

    We will be buying our first home in a few months, and I would love ideas and inspiration from the parade of homes. I loved the pictures of the blogger house, and would be really excited to see it in person!

  24. Elizabeth P. says

    I would love to be able to go see this beautiful home! I’m in the process of looking for our first home and haven’t found the right one yet. So, I’m leaning towards building our own home with the help of a professional designer/builder. I would love to get ideas for my new home!

  27. Shelly says

    I would love tickets to go to see the DIY blogger house. I love your ideas and would love to see them in person rather than just pictures. Also I will be in Utah next week visiting and would be perfect timing. Thanks!

  28. Alison Shyle says

    I would absolutely LOVE tickets to the DIY blogger house simply because I have newly discovered the “shabby chic” method and am in dire need of face to face inspiration. My creative wheels start turning once I have been introduced to an idea. I undoubtedly believe if I were given the chance to experience something so fabulous as this opportunity then my creative juices would go wild…did I mention I am currently in the process of decorating my new home (small apt, call it what you will) from head to toe?!

    HaPpY CrEaTiViTy,
