My Must Have Products Giveaway

It's time for the first of three amazing giveaway bundles I have planned for this week!  The first to kick off this celebration is prize bundle of some of my most FAVORITEST products I've used my first year of blogging & DIY's.  I'm here to celebrate these companies and to share them with you.  I want you guys to experience some of the most amazing top of the line products that once I used them once, I'll never switch from them.  You'll get a little introduction to each company, I'll chime in and let you know why I love each and every company.

Purdy Brushes
Purdy Brushes

"Purdy® has been making quality handcrafted painting tools since 1925 and is the choice for those who want to enjoy their painting experience and get the project done right."

Why I love Purdy:
I have used Purdy brushes for about 6 months now.  These are my ALL TIME FAVORITE brushes ever.  When I first started doing DIY painting projects, I purchased whatever brush was the cheapest.  I didn't buy into the higher end brushes being truly better at that time.  I thought it was the painter not the painting brush.  Well, then I finally purchased my first one - a 1.5" XL Glide.  I honestly could not believe how comfortable they were, how much easier painting was with them, and the best part - how easily they cleaned and kept their shape!  I've been using that first one I bought still, 6 months later, and it still had it's initial shape with no frayed bristles or anything.
They are by FAR my must have painting brush.  I've also recently used their roller brush on my son's bathroom make over which I loved too!

What they're giving to you:
A 2.5" XL-Glide brush ($14 value)

Purdy also sponsors YouCanSaveTheWalls.com - site where consumers can go to get painting and decorating advice from HGTV design star Lisa LaPorta. There is a lot of creative ideas offered plus a great tool to help you pick which brush is best for your project.

Cutting Edge Stencils

pbjstories giveaway, cutting edge stencils

Why I love Cutting Edge Stencils:
Working with a stencil can be quite difficult, and it was one of my first biggest DIY projects I took on after starting PBJstories.com.  I ordered their Moroccan Dream Stencil for my Painted Curtains and was so impressed with their high-quality stencils.  Shortly after I did my first giveaway with them and loved the turn out from it.  It was one of the first companies I ever contacted as a new blogger and was quickly relieved how kind and courteous they were, not only to me as a customer but as a blogger to work with.  My second project I did using their stencils was my Kitchen Pantry Makeover which I used the Fuji Allover Stencil and LOVE the pattern.  They truly love their customers and are always willing to go the extra mile to help them with their projects.  They even have an entire YouTube channel filled with informative videos to help you with your stenciling projects! 

What they're giving to you:
A $50 value towards any stencil of your choice + a stencil essentials kit which includes dense foam 4" roller with red handle, Natural 5/8" White Bristle Stencil Brush, Clip-on Stencil level
($70 value!)
