** this giveaway is CLOSED.  congratulations to Ryan Di Salvo! **

Bah humbug.  Or at least that’s what I want to tell this wifi connection … which is making me apoplectic.  Totally one of my favorite words, by the way.  It just sounds as annoyed as I am.  I promised a Black Friday giveaway — and you got nothing.  No fair!  Oops. That’s Twin A’s favorite expression, not mine.  And hey, you weren’t supposed to be reading blogs working on Friday anyway!

Girlfriends, I think you’ ll agree that this was worth the wait. It’s a cyber Monday giveaway like no other!  I am beyond delighted to be giving away — thanks to the incredible generosity of Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis — a free (as in, won’t cost you one red cent to attend**) admission to Design Camp in Atlanta on January 30 – February 1, 2013.  Worth $1,297 smackaroos, this would be an over-the-top fabulous gift for your mom, sister, bestie, you name it.

Jam-packed with awesome speakers and events, Design Camp is a two-day seminar for design professionals or design aficionados.  As Lori and Kelli put it, it’s the place for “practical, applicable, real-life design insight you don’t get from traditional institutions.”  I am soooo excited to be attending myself — you already know that I love to learn from the best — and having one awesome blog reader there will be the icing on the cake!  I’ve already heard that the content is fabulous, so I’m counting down the days.  I will share more scoop about Design Camp in the coming days … hopefully after my wifi connection stops being so cantankerous.  Which is also a word that seemed appropriate.  

I am going to make entering this contest super-easy … so you have no excuses not to throw your name in the hat.  Simply leave a comment — and make sure I have a way to reach you — and you are entered to win!   You can comment once on any post written between now and Wednesday, December 5.  Each comment will get you an entry … and I’ll draw the winner at random on the morning of Thursday, December 6.  Good luck!

Are you entering for the giveaway for yourself … or a friend or family member?

**Alright, technically speaking, it may cost the winner one red cent.  She’ll cover her travel and hotel expenses, but her registration — and that’s usually the pricey part — is gratis.

    Hey Traci,
    I’ve wanted to attend one of these for a few years now! What a great connection it would give a little decorator out in the Wild West :). It gets a bit lonely out here. We have more deer than stores (I guess that does have an upside to it). So, please enter my name! And thanks for the chance.
