Weekend Giveaway.....



My friend Melaine from My Sweet Savannah is doing an e-course, as part of
Jeanne Oliver's summer series, on using reclaimed wood to make frames and signs
and other wonderful things.  If you know anything about Melaine,
the girl knows her way around power tools and seems to have an
abundant amount of energy and 'can-do' spirit!  Besides being handy, 
she is one of the nicest peeps I have met via blogging.

Do you want to join me on a journey of erasing
our fear of power tools forever?  And maybe make
some cool things for ourselves too?



Melaine has generously agreed to giveaway FIVE spots
in her e-course to readers of Forever*Cottage!

To enter the giveaway simply:
 Leave me a comment telling me the last power
tool you used {keep it clean ladies!}.

And if you are too impatient and would like to enroll in
Melaine's class for a reasonable $10 you can!

To register go to jeanneoliver.ning and register (this part is free).
You will find the mini course along the left hand side of the site under COURSES.
Click on the course you want to register for and pay.
If you don't see the course you are looking for click "view all" under the courses for a complete list of courses.

I will announce the FIVE winners on Monday!

  6. I love these e-courses! I use my power drill every week, it seems. I even bought a spare battery so I never have to wait for the thing to charge.

  7. I have the tools but I never use them because I'm afraid of them. This would be a perfect class. I've been wanting to learn how to use them for a few years now.

  8. The last power tool I used would be a palm sander. I would love to learn how to make these frames. When it comes to buying them they're usually expensive. I hate to buy them when I'm certain I could make them (if I knew how) for little to nothing! I visit both this blog and mysweetsavannah daily, I actually thought I'd typed wrong when I came to this blog and saw a pic of Melaine lol, had to look twice to make sure I was actually on forever cottage. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. A year ago my Honey-do list was longer than he had time to do so I had him show me the basics and have been using my TABLE SAW ever since. I too use repurposed wood and do image transfers on the wood I salvaged myself. You can find a few examples while my website is being revamped at www.mishkagreetings.etsy.com

  14. My husband is a fireman...and never home. That forced me to become acquainted, three months ago, with our power drill! I needed to repair the floor of my cute little chicken's coop (yes, I have a chicken..her name is DeeDee). By some miracle, I managed to successfully pull off the repair. I then secretly wanted to learn more about the darn drill so I could start building things ~ I got the bug!

  15. Just finished up using the hubby's chop saw. I have to admit, I love that thing but I am probally like Tim the Tool Man Taylor when I use it!
    Thanks! Her frames are to die for!!!

  20. The last power tool I used was probably my compound mitre saw. And I need to use it a whole lot more to keep plugging away at the trim around here, but it will have to wait until the kids are settled back at school.

  21. The last power tool I used was a sander, I'm making a table out of reclaimed barn board. It's a lot of work! (totally worth it)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I used my jigsaw to cut wood for handpainted signs!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I used a jigsaw to make scallops on a piece of wood, then painted chalkboard for sign on my porch...but my fav power tool is nail gun ;)

  26. I last used a power drill. I have been wanting to start making frames, so the timing is perfect! The comments are even inspiring to use more tools :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Literally just put away my circular saw after cutting yet another un-straight line. How do you finish straight after the laser has left the wood? Grr!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hmmm that would be both my orbital sander and my screw driver. :-) Love my tools. LOL Great Give-aways....thank you! Have a blessed day.

  32. Okay, I'm boring...I just used a hammer and nails. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm thinking my Kitchenaid doesn't count?! Yep, I totally need to take Melaine's class. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think it was an electric sander . . . that is about the extent of my power tool skills. :) I've always wanted to make frames, but have been too nervous to do on my own. I would SO love to take this class.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Does a hammer count?

    ReplyDelete
  36. The last power tool that I used was a jigsaw. My daughter and I had a grand time creating things for her new room. I would love to take this class and expand my knowledge of power tools and create something wonderful to share with my family and friends.

  37. Hmmm...well we just put two wardrobes together with a cordless screwdriver and nail gun - but by "we" I mean my husband wielded the tools and I held things in place.: ) I definitely think I could use a little encouragement!
    Thanks!
