12 days of giveaways.

Here in the U.S. tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  If any of you have been following me since the beginning you may remember that I started my blog on Thanksgiving weekend 2013.  So yep, that makes this my six year blogiversary!  Well, technically speaking, it was yesterday.  But close enough.

Quite honestly, I never thought I’d make it past five years.

I also never thought I’d make it past 25 followers.

While I haven’t ‘gone viral’ and I don’t seem to have made it into the inner circle of ‘cool kids’ (just like in high school), today I’m feeling incredibly grateful for all of the amazing things this blog has brought my way.  But I’m especially thankful for all of you.  Without you, there would be no q is for quandie.  So thank you for following, commenting, sharing and otherwise supporting my blog.

Now it’s time to celebrate with 12 days of giveaways!

Starting today and running every Monday, Wednesday & Friday until December 23, I’m going to post a giveaway here on the blog.  That’s four weeks of giveaways!!  Woo hoo!

So let’s get this ball rolling, shall we?

I know it’s a little like picking my favorite child, and we aren’t supposed to do that, but I have to confess that Re.design with Prima Marketing is one of my favorite sponsors.  I feel incredibly honored to be included on their Design Team.

I get so excited when they have a new release and they send me a box of stuff.  The latest box even literally arrived on my birthday, what a treat!  And I can’t share any of it with you today.  The official reveal date of this latest release is December 16, so I have to sit here, all alone, drooling over these new designs until then.

In the meantime, today I’m giving away their Fresh Flowers transfer.  Last summer I used half of the transfer on this drop leaf table.

Here is the full design.

I’m still hanging on to that upper portion waiting for just the right project to come along.  But the lower portion was perfect for the table.

And of course, I am giving away the entire transfer (not just my unused portion, that would be tacky, right?)

Just to add a little something more to this giveaway, I’m also including the Queen Bee clay pot that I used for staging that piece.

I painted the pot using Miss Mustard Seed milk paint, and then used Fusion Transfer Gel to add the graphic (check out this post for all of the details).  Not all of my pots turned out that day, but this one is my favorite of the bunch.

Thank you to Re.design with Prima Marketing for sponsoring this giveaway by providing the transfer.

The rules:  to be eligible to win today’s prize leave a comment on this blog post.  If you can’t think of anything to say, just tell me what your favorite fresh flower is.  Your comment must be left on the blog, not on Facebook or Instagram.  You are not required to follow my blog, although it would be awesome if you did!

I will randomly draw the name of a winner for today’s prize from all of the comments left on this post by Friday, November 29, 2019 at the stroke of midnight (U.S. Central time).

The fine print: no purchase necessary, you must be 18 years of age or older to win, void where prohibited by law, the number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning, approximate retail value of prize is $40, if the prize is not claimed by Sunday, December 1, another name will be drawn at random to win, blah, blah, blah.

Good luck!

  1. I think you are one of the coolest of the cool kids and your work is super inspiring. Not sure if your competition is open to international entries. Maybe you let me know and I’ll try to win something less breakable.


  2. I so enjoy your blog and was excited when I found you. I’m a milk painter, haven’t done any transfers but I’d sure like to try one. Love all the ones you blog about.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving and blogversary!! I am not at all surprised you have lasted 6 years! I tell everyone about you. Did a couple of books with transfers to learn how to do it. They turned out great. Even my guys liked them. Just used a couple small poinsettia transfers and tied the books with black and white checked ribbon. Thank you for the idea. This year I’m giving thanks for Mr. Q for running those errands to pick up what you need for your projects!😀. Have a good day and you know I’ll be checking every MWF.

  14. Love your blog! Love your projects!! Would love to win the transfer, as I have the exact same table in my stash, and would truly love to mimic a project after one of the coolest kids I follow 🙂 P.S. I’m saying a special prayer that a neighbor just like Ken will be in one of your giveaways (just sayin’). Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.


  15. I dont know about the “cool kids” in high school but you are way up there on my scale. I LOVE everything you do on on this blog. You are such an inspiration!!

  16. Found your blog on transfers very inspiring. Just tried my hand at this for the first time today – one transfer of a butterfly on a table top and another on the drawer pull. So easy and so pretty. I just signed up for your blog and am looking forward to future inspirations.


  17. I love this transfer. In fact I loved the table you did with the ‘Fresh Flowers’ part of the transfer and I loved it so very much that I did my very own table the same way! Thanks for the inspiration.
    Happy 6th blogiversary and Happy Thanksgiving.

  18. I have been wanting to reach out to you for sometime now! I discovered your blog within the last year and loved everything that I saw. I was so impressed with your work that I went back to the beginning and read your posts from start to finish. Pinned way too many to count of your pieces for inspiration. I am convinced that if we lived near each other we would be BFFs!!!! I love your home and buildings, your painting style and the fact that you are an avid “garage saler”!!!! I recently found some vintage wallpaper at an estate sale and can’t wait to use it on something. I loved all the projects that you used it on. I also love the transfers and would love to try one. Thanks for the giveaways!


    1. I did several pieces with vintage wallpaper for a while there. I love the look of it! Well, I guess I love the look of almost anything that is truly vintage, including Mr. Q 😉 Thanks for joining me here on the blog Gloria!


  19. Congratulations on your blog -versary!!
    I so enjoy alk you make overs. Just wish you were closer to Missouri. Long way to go shopping. Lol. My favorite flowers are roses.lilacs. even the humble zinnia,such a riot of colors.


  20. I found you on Christmas 6 years ago. Enjoy your blog immensely. The things you accomplish with paint and transfers are fabulous. As for flowers I adore gardenias for their scent and camellias for their long growing season during fall and winter.


    1. If I didn’t already know that you have a southern garden, I would by your favorite flower 🙂 We had gardenias when we lived in Florida and I loved smelling them on the breeze. Thanks so much for sticking with me all of these years Victoria!


  21. I’m very new to your blog and love everything you create. This transfer is darling. I make my own lotion bars and the bee mold 🐝 is my favorite.


    1. Prima Marketing has quite a few transfers with adorable bees on them, including one of the new designs that I can’t share with you guys yet! You’ll just have to stay tuned to see it 🙂


  22. Happy Blogversary and Happy Thanksgiving! Q for Quandie is my favorite blog to read. I love how inspiring your work is and your gentle sense of humor is very uplifting. This transfer is beautiful and I would love to win it! Thank you for everythink you do!

  23. You are so right about running in to problems with furniture. I got a pie safe at an auction and when I loaded it on the truck, the back fell off. I love reading your blogs for its honesty and ideas. The products you recommend help solve a lot of problems with furniture. Now all I need is a Ken!
