Company Ready

DIY Home Blog Award |

I think most of us have been there at some point.  You’re going about your day…. checking stuff off the “to-do” list and you get the phone call.  Maybe it’s a text.  That moment you discover someone is unexpectedly stopping by.  And your brain starts spinning.  If you’re like me, you start asking yourself things like “How many dirty dishes are in the kitchen sink? Exactly how many dishes is ‘too many’?  What’s the situation in the guest bathroom?  Did that certain someone leave their socks in the family room and living room and kitchen AGAIN?!”

If you’ve ever experienced that panicked moment of wondering if you’re ready for unexpected company, then you know EXACTLY what went through my brain when I received an email last week saying I’ve just been nominated for the Lamps Plus 2013 Best Home Blogs Award.

Lamps Plus Home Blog Sweepstakes

This is a huge honor and one I’m blown away by!  However, it leaves me a little embarrassed by the layer of dust that has collected on my blog.  It’s been a bit quiet around here lately and frankly, I’m not feeling company ready for such an award.

But sometimes when someone drops by unexpectedly, you just have to toss the clean laundry behind the sofa and welcome them in.  Or so I’ve heard…

Here’s the deal:

Now until November 15th you can go over to the Lamps Plus Facebook Page and vote for Storypiece in the DIY category.  You can vote once every 24 hours and every time you vote, not only will I be thoroughly grateful, but YOU will be entered to win a $500 shopping spree to Lamps Plus.  That’s right… you could be a winner too!

How to Enter:

  • Like the Lamps Plus Facebook Page.
  • Once on their page, you can click on Sweepstakes to cast your vote.  There are four categories to vote in, which means up to four entries for you each day.

So head on over to Facebook to enter.  For extra fun, while you’re on Facebook, feel free to ‘Like’ the Storypiece Page too.  It doesn’t get you an entry into the sweepstakes, but it will make my day.  In the mean time, I’ll be clearing away the cobwebs and getting back to the business of DIY.

What would you do if you won the $500 Lamps Plus Shopping Spree? Do you always feel like your home is company ready?  What is something someone is guaranteed to discover about you if they unexpectedly drop by?

      Thank you for your sweet encouragement! I’m up against some blogging “giants” so I’m feeling pretty blessed to even be nominated. 🙂
