A Sneak Peek and a GIVEAWAY!

I've been working on a project for my kids that has taken me waaaaay longer than it probably should have. But with the heat we've been having it's been so hard to work outside and this is the kind of project that has involved cutting, sanding, and lots of spray painting so it's not exactly something I can work on indoors. But I really feel like I'm so close to being finished. So I thought I'd give you a little tease and see if any of you smart blog ladies can figure out what I'm making.



I also wanted to tell you about another awesome giveaway from CSN stores. They have over 200 stores and just about everything you could ever want. Check out these awesome dutch ovens. Mmmmmm.....the yumminess that could be made in one of those beauties. CSN is offering one lucky "This Present Life" reader a $40 credit to any of their stores!

So here's how to play.

1) Leave me a comment telling me you're a follower (current or new).
2) For a second entry, leave me a comment telling me what you think my "sneak peek" project is!

The Giveaway will close next Thursday at midnight (CST) and I will announce the lucky winner next Friday.

Good luck! And have a fun, safe, relaxing holiday weekend!

  14. I'm going with some sort of table or maybe a bench. It kinda looks like it has arms or something but looks too short to be a chair... man- I don't know! lol
