True Value Blog Squad 2012!

It's DIY season again! I'm honored and so excited to be on the 2012 True Value DIY Blog Squad again!!! In 2011 we did a lot of work on our deck in our outdoor living space series.  This year we will be working on our one room school house taking it from bare bones to photography studio! I can not wait to share the progress.

In addition to my DIY projects and tutorials, we will be giving away 2 True Value Hardware $100 gift cards!!!! So you can tackle some of your own projects this year.

You can follow me and all the other Blog Squad members on Facebook through the Blog Squad tab on True Value Hardware's fan page.

Send money the easy way with Western Union Gift Cards!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Western Union for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

The older I get the more spread out my family has become.  This year we have a lot going on, which requires a lot of traveling, so of course my car decided it's going to have major issues which caused me to miss some important events.  I'm not very good at packaging things up and shipping them out.  Seriously, even for my business I have my assistant do it.  It's just not my thing.  But one thing I CAN do is order things online and have them shipped directly to a person! Now that's my kind of gift giving.  

Gift cards are, of course, the easiest gift to give.  But when I order a giftcard to be shipped I worry that it will seam inpersonal when it arrives.  The next time I send one I'm going to try out the Western Union gift card.  You can load the card for any amount from $5 to $100. What makes it personal? You can actually record a message to the gift recipiant that plays for them when they call to activate the card! How cool is that! So you can sing happy birthday, tell someone how much you love them..... heck, dad can even put on a stern message to that college child of his that the card is for books, not beer! 

The cards are easy to send, you just go to WUgift.com. First class shipping is free.  There is a $5 fee to purchase the gift card, but through 9/1/12 you can use promotion code WUGIFTPROMO7 for 25% off! 

Gift Card only for sale and shipment to the 48 contiguous states excluding AZ, PO Boxes, U.S. military bases and correctional facilities 

The Western Union gift card is issued by MetaBank pursuant to a license from Visa UUSA Inc. MetaBank, Member FDIC.  A $2.50 per month servicing fee applies after 12 consecutive months of non-use.

Receive 25% off the $5 gift card fee when purchasing a gift card at wugift.com.  Limit one (1) coupon per transaction.  No cash redemption value.  Cannot be combined with any other offer.  Void where prohibited.  Offer expires 9/1/2012
