Handy Girl Daily News: Vote, Shop & Save

I’m just dropping in to give you the Handy Girl Daily News…well, since this is the first one (and possibly the only one for 2013), maybe I should drop the “daily” word from the title. Anywho, just needed to make a few announcements:

OPC’s Better Half Before & After Contest Voting:

Remember when I donned my judge’s wig and judged a weekly Before & After contest?


Well, the weekly winners have all be chosen and now it’s the grand finale of One Project Closer’s annual Before & After contest! Voting starts tonight at 10 pm EST for the grand prize winner! All of the weekly winners will go against each other for the grand prize ($150 gift card). Voting will take place Thursday night (sept 26) at 10 pm EST through Sunday at midnight. You can vote once per day for your favorite.

You might recall that Kim from The Kim Six Fix was chosen by me for a weekly winner.

If you thought that was an amazing “after”, you should really check out all the other amazing Before & Afters and vote for your favorite.


Shop for a Good Cause:

I’m all about strong women. No matter the size (or age) I celebrate women who aren’t afraid to fight. I’d like you to meet Cami, she’s one tough little chica.


She beat cancer at age 4, but unfortunately she’s now battling it a second time. You can help Cami and her family by doing a little shopping at P.S. I Adore You this month. Hurry, there’s only two days left and she needs all the help she can get!

You can also help Cami (or possibly another child who needs a bone marrow transplant) by getting on the BeTheMatch donor list. It’s super easy, you just enter your information on the website and they send you a kit in the mail to do a cheek swab. Easy! Can you imagine if you were given the chance to save a child’s life? What if it was your child that needed saving? I hope you’ll take a few moments to sign up.

To read more about Cami and the fundraiser, visit my friend Shelley at House of Smiths.


Silhouette Discount Announcement:

Finally, I have big plans for November! I’m planning an entire month of DIY Cheapskate Gift Ideas you won’t want to miss. There will be tutorials all month long to help you keep more money in your pocket without being a grinch when it comes to gift giving.

One of the projects will be created using my Silhouette and the new glass etching kit.


If you have been waiting to purchase a Silhouette, now is the time to do it! If you purchase the Cameo (my favorite Silhouette machine), you save a whopping $69 on the machine and the glass etching kit ($30 off the machine and the etching kit for FREE!)

If you don’t have the budget for the Cameo, you can save even more on the Portrait. Save $89 on the machine and glass etching kit ($50 on the Silhouette Portrait AND  get that Glass Etching Kit for FREE!) You can’t beat this deal.

Visit Silhouette now and remember to use the promotional code: HANDY when checking out!

Okay, that’s all folks!


Disclosure: I receive a very small percentage of any sales made on Silhouette products when the promo code: HANDY is used.
