Paint me argyle....or is it Plaid?

Back in...September? I submitted my painted pumpkin to Plaid Crafts Trick My Pumpkin contest. I put myself out there to win which is always difficult but can be so worth it.

The pumpkin I submitted was actually the argyle one.

I did not win the grand prize but I was chosen as a runner up! I came in third and was quite tickled to be chosen as even that. And I didn't know it at the time but soon received an email asking where to send my prize box. Prize box? Woohoo!

And here's what I won:

A box full of $50.00 worth of product! I got a small jar of Mod Podge which....I have actually never used before. I know, right? I don't know how that happened but I'm glad I can finally try it.

I'm also SUPER excited about these:

I'm excited because I'm actually wanting to try a new jewelry technique using these paints.

Thank you, Plaid!

Currently, they have a Christmas contest going on.
