HomeTalk Giveaway ~ $100 Target gift card!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

A few months ago, I became a member of the HomeTalk community, one of my sponsors, who's interactive site is of a great interest to us as homeowners.  Membership is FREE!  It's an informative and friendly online tool for homeowners and professionals to trade helpful tips, advice, referrals for repair, renovation and gardening. I love that I can connect with others locally and from all over for advice or to share home improvement stories and experiences.  Ever wonder how NOT TO have a DIY disaster?  Check there as a source for information on how to do things right.  I've gotten helpful information about bats in our attic and shared our bamboo floors.  It's fun interaction and a very useful resource for homeowners. 

Talk about real life home ownership experiences.

There's an extra added bonus when you join! Every week, HomeTalk gives away something to make your house a little better. EVERY WEEK!  

And guess what else?!  HomeTalk is giving away $100 gift card to Target to one lucky DIY Show Off reader! Who doesn't want a Target shopping spree?!  In the event you don't, well then...you can win and give it away! Gift cards are awesome gifts!  My anniversary is coming up.  K?

I have wanted to have a dishwasher installed for many years but my kitchen doesn't have the hook-ups for one. All these yearsI had no idea where to find someone to do the work or any idea how much it would cost, so I think HomeTalk will be a great place to post and maybe I can finally get the dishwasher I've been dreaming of! Thanks!

I "liked" HomeTalk on facebook! It's so great that they have a site like this! I wish I would have found it sooner! DIY-ing my first place makes me feel like I spend more time trying to figure out how to do things then I spend actually doing. It's great!
