Giveaway: Custom Designed Stencil ($50.00)

UPDATE: One comment was not an entry, so I used random.org to choose a winning comment from 1-53 and, it's so weird, comment #53 won! Congrats Rose!  I'll be in touch shortly. 

I feel really lucky to be able to pursue blogging as a creative outlet.  I love connecting with fellow DIYers (and readers) to share projects, ideas and feedback.  Having someone get excited about my project, share their tips and tricks and partake in the DIY goodness is just so much fun for me (I've already talked about why).  Well, this might sound cheesy, but the experience I had partnering with Stencils Online felt like when I connect with a reader of Dans le Townhouse, or fellow blogger, because the folks over there are so excited about DIY projects!  I loved sharing my ideas with them because it was like I was chatting with friends.

They helped design both my feminist stencil (which people have since been ordering - isn't that wild?) and my recently revealed Hungarian poem stencil - both pictured below.   

And now they want to help you design a stencil!

They've offered a $50.00 credit (plus free shipping) to either Stencils Online, where you can design your own stencil - maybe song lyrics or a poem that moves you - or iStencils, if a stock design is just what you've been after.

HOW TO ENTER:

(Please leave a separate comment for each entry and remember to leave your email address if it is not connected to your profile.  The winner from the subway print contest has yet to contact me!)

Tell me what stencil design you're cooking up (don't worry - we won't hold you to it), or what iStencil design you're eyeing.  That's it: just share your genius with us!

BONUS ENTRIES (leave a separate comment for each):

1. Like Stencils Online on Facebook
2. Like iStencils on Facebook
3. Follow iStencils on Pinterest

Contest closes Thursday, June 14th Midnight EST.  Random.org will help me choose the winner!





P.S. Check the post for last week's giveaway - I've added an update to announce the winner.  And, if you're interested specifically in my feminist stencil (above) check back next week because Stencils Online will be giving away one of those, too!  See?  Aren't they awesome?

  8. I could really use a custom stencil for a canvas I am working on....actually, it's a canvas I have sort of messed up with mod podge, so I figure....let's just stencil and paint over it! A custom stencil would turn my oops into fabulous again! Thanks for the giveaway.

  15. I'm not sure what exactly I'd design, but probably something that's a mix of mix of floral and traditional geometric since our house is sort of country/cottage style.

  24. I love the fact that you can create your own custom stencils with Stencils Online. I'm thinking an ocean wave stencil might look cool on the art wall I'm planning to hang around the TV in our family room.

    Your poem on the antiqued mirror looks great!
