A Giveaway at the Eleventh Hour: Edmonton Home and Garden Show

Last week I got a surprise email from Tara Jamison of Lauren Lane Decor in Calgary.  She is presenting at the Edmonton Home and Garden Show this weekend, and asked me if I wanted to give away some tickets on my blog!  It was so exciting to be contacted out of the blue like that (most likely thanks to Leanne).


I said, "Sure, of course, I'd love to!"  So Tara put the tickets in the mail.  And I waited.  And waited.  I planned to post the giveaway details on Monday, provided I had the tickets by then.  I was sure I would.  I mean, it's only Calgary.  But they didn't come.  I think I've checked the mailbox four or five times per day over the past three days.  No tickets.

I let Tara know so she didn't think I was a flake and was just keeping the tickets for myself!  She generously offered to leave me more tickets at her hotel for me to pick up.

So since the show starts tomorrow, and even though I do not have the tickets in hand yet, I wanted to get the post up.


If you are or will be in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada this weekend and want tickets to the Edmonton Home and Garden show (which includes a chance to win a free private chalk paint class from Tara!), leave me a comment on this post!  For an extra entry, I'd love it if you "like" my facebook page too! You can mention that in the same comment for the two entries.

  1. Wish I was in Edmonton for a couple of reasons - I love free tickets to anthing AND we could hang together at the Home Show. Oh well. I hope some lucky winner enjoys the day.

    1. Christan, that definitely counts! I guess I should have clarified that!
