Giveaway Alert! 2012 Ultimate Blogger Party

Are you ready for the Ultimate Blogger Party? It starts @ midnight!



Once, the kick-off begins I will be giving away a fantastic Votivo Candle through 5MinutesforMom.com

These are the most amazing candles!! They burn for 50 hours and have the most amazing scents. A $25 value!

So, in honor of the blog party, I would like to introduce myself...I am Jenn! Thanks for visiting my blog, Just the Details. My blog is a place where I post everything that has to do with Interior Design, Fashion, Party Planning, occasionally some recipes, and DIY Crafts and Projects. In my spare time, I well love to blog about my hobbies. I love love Design! I am constantly trying to find new ways to spruce up my home with inexpensive finds and DIY projects to get that look that you see in designer magazines or shows on a budget! It may take me a while to achieve the look I want and I may change my mind on the way, but I like to showcase my lil' projects and maybe even share some pointers. So...in a nutshell...this is my hobby and I have a full time day job in healthcare and a part-time job at a home accessory and furnishings boutique in Cary, NC. I live with my amazing hard-working husband and my doggie, Chloe and my two kitties.

This is me....!!

This is my hubby and I!

and my doggie, Chloe.

Here are some of my latest projects that I am working on that I have half finished....one reason why I haven't posted anything in a while. I've been hard at work.

My office above a work in progress....painted the horizontal stripes in Bedford Gray by MS and Slate Gray by Restoration Hardware....

This Desk was awful before I painted it....this isn't a great shot, but I painted it with my own "chalk" paint in a cream and distressed it and gave it a metallic sheen with some glaze. This desk will be in my office and is currently a work in progress. Stay tuned for the REVEAL one of these days! ha. 

Enjoy the Blog Party! I met a lot of my followers and friends through the Blog Party! It's a great way to network and find new friends. So leave me a note and let me know you stopped by! 

Thanks and Enjoy the UBP!

  1. Jenn, so glad you stopped by, we do have more than NC in common cause I LOVE working on my home design too, currently I am on a balcony craze! lol I have given up my yard and now flower garden on my balcony, I consider it to be my 5th room in my place, I cannot wait for warmer weather so I can spend plenty of time out there, and hopefully we can share some tips along the way! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
