Oo Ooo Ooooo! I have some exciting news! Well, it is official. Carter is now married! On September 11, 2011 he tied the knot.
Okay, so I’m not his new bride, but Amy Smart is (from Shameless and the Help). Congratulations to the happy couple! I wasn’t invited to the wedding, but I forgive the newlyweds. It was a quick engagment and I’m sure it was an oversight. I’ll forgive him if he invites me out to meet him as part of the new GMC Trade Secret Sweepstakes! At which point I can deliver his wedding present in person ;-D.
I have been attracted to Carter’s, how shall I say…
…green habits since I first laid eyes on him on Trading Spaces! (Oh come on, what did you think I was going to say?!) Carter is an outspoken environmentalist and advocates re-using building materials or making choices that are environmentally friendly when building. He has a page on his official website on ways to conserve in your own home.
Okay, so you want to meet Carter too? Or how about Eric Stromer from TLC’s Clean Sweep and HGTV’s Over Your Head? Or Sam Talbot? Well, here is your chance!
GMC Trade Secrets is offering 3 lucky grand prize winners a trip for 2 to New York or LA, some spending cash and the opportunity to film your “trade secret” on set with Eric, Sam or Carter. (I’m sure you already know who would be my pick!)
2nd prize is an iPad 2 (not to shabby right!)
You can enter anytime between now and October 24th. The judging will happen the following week, then the finalists will be voted on by the public. Finally winners will be announced by November 14th.
Good luck! And if you win, can you stow me away in your suitcase? Pretty please with nailhead trim on top?!!!

In regards to the sweepstakes, I only partake in promoting contests and events that I think you would be interested in. As fellow DIYers, I’m positive that you all have some great “trade secrets” that you can submit. I wish you all the best of luck!
